submerged beneath ocean water Zealandia was only recognized as a bonafide
continent in 2017 that’s really recent I mean finally God number four
New Zealand is situated roughly 900 miles east of Australia across the
Tasman Sea as such they are often lumped together especially given their fairly
similar accents which Australian to New Zealanders will turn you sound
completely different even though they don’t number 5 because of its remoteness
preferring to hang out on its own in the middle of nowhere like a right little
emo the islands of New Zealand constitute the last major landmass
outside of Antarctica to be settled by humans during this long period of
isolation a distinct ecology emerged teeming with a wide variety of animal
plant and fungal species all enjoying life without humans our blitter rating
them six so when did we turn up in New
Zealand archaeologists believe that the Maori people the Polynesians who settled
in the islands arrived sometime between 1250 and 1300 ad yes that’s right I said
ad mother-effer that means that New Zealand has been
inhabited by humans for less than 800 years number seven of the I am according
to Maori tradition the native people of New Zealand came from an island called
Hawaii the original home of the Polynesian
people’s as such Hawaii is viewed as a source of life and legend dictates that
the soul of Polynesian people returned to Hawaii when they died number eight
according to Maori legend the dead traveled to cape reinga the northwestern
most point of the North Island here they leap off an 800 year old for who – Carla
tree and into the ocean beginning their trip back to the ancestral homeland of
Hawaii number nine but the Maori weren’t alone on the island for long in 1642 the
Dutch explorer Abel Tasman became the first European to sight New Zealand only
about four hundred years after the Polynesian people had already arrived
there numerous geographical features such as the Tasman Sea in the Australian
island of Tasmania are named after him number 10 when Tasman arrived at the
islands he initially thought it was part of South America and named it Staten
land meaning States land when they realized that the landmass was very much
not attached to the South American continent they changed the name to Nova
Zealandia the exact Dutch translation for New Zealand it was named this after
the Dutch province of Zeeland number 11 however it wasn’t actually the dot she
first colonized the island now known as New Zealand as it was the British sorry
in the form of Captain James Cook who first began making break into contact
with the Maori people in 1769 roughly one hundred twenty seven years after
Tasman did the British began trading with the Maori exchanging metal tools
weapons and food for timber Maori artefacts and food people love food
apparently a food number 12 roughly 70 years later the British
decided to make an honest woman out of New Zealand and declared British
sovereignty over the islands in 1840 with the signing of the Treaty of
Waitangi the Accord was signed by William Hobson
New Zealand’s first governor and about 540 Maori chiefs
number thirteen Barron Europeans continue to arrive in New Zealand
including Christian missionaries who ultimately converted most of the Maori
population unfortunately however with European
people came European diseases including such smash hits as influenza and measles
to which the native Maori people had no natural immunity as such the 19th
century saw the Maori population fall dramatically while the number of
Europeans continued to search number fourteen not only that the Europeans
brought with them fancy new technology in the form of guns which soon ended up
in the hands of the Maori though different Maori groups had always fought
amongst themselves because that’s just how humans beö the introduction of the
muskets made these conflicts significantly more deadly it’s thought
that approximately 20,000 Maori died as a result of the so called musket Wars
though some estimates put the figure at highs 40,000 number 15 the intertribal
musket wars decimated various Maori groups which forced many of them to free
their traditional lands and shifted territorial boundaries for others this
opened up large areas to European settlement inflaming tensions between
Maori and the New Zealand government that quickly escalated into a series of
armed wars now known as the New Zealand Wars between 1845 in 1872 roughly 3,000
were killed the vast majority of which from Maori number 16 in 1841 New Zealand
officially became a colony of the British Empire before being upgraded to
a Dominion in 1907 this was a change in name only meant to elevate the region’s
position above the less than complimentary status of colony New
Zealanders used to celebrate their nations promotion on Dominion day on the
26th of September but the tradition dying out only a few decades later
number 17 New Zealand eventually gained full independence in 1947 and with the
passage of the Constitution Act in 1986 unilaterally eliminated all residual
British legislative power all such residual luenell at
unilaterally unilaterally eliminated all residual British registers of power well
done you guys however the British monarch remained the nation’s head of
state meaning that Queen Liz is very much the queen of New Zealand
represented in the country by governor-general love your Queen Liz
number 18 as such New Zealand is today a constitutional monarchy organized into
11 regional councils and 67 territorial authorities for local government purpose
sexy number 19 but that’s not all the realm of New Zealand which sounds like
middle-earth itself but we’ll get to that in a bit also includes Tokelau new
way the Cook Islands and the Ross dependency which is a slice of
Antarctica claimed by New Zealand as well as the name of a horrible disease
that Rachel from friends seemingly suffered from number 20 day in the
Australian Constitution which is a great read by the way I suggest you pick it up
sometime New Zealand is listed as a state of Australia which means they can
join the Australian Confederation if they so choose and they chose not to in
1901 number 21 New Zealand’s population is 4.7 million which is pretty much half
the population of New York and over 35,000 times the size of norwich most of
them are now of European descent the indigenous Maori are the largest
minority it slightly under 15 percent followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders
number 22 in case you’re wondering how big the combined land area of New
Zealand is I can help you out there it so talks roughly one hundred three
thousand four hundred eighty square miles
you’re welcome bish number 23 the official languages of New Zealand are
English which I mean thank goodness is the voice how the heck could they
understand what I’m all about and Maori which I’ve been practicing my small talk
in a we know Maya Hal Kai roto a how a roto a taro he taro everybody the other
is New Zealand sign language interestingly New Zealand was the first
country on earth to make a signed language and official language which
they did in 1987 number 24 in case you’re wondering by the way the Maori
name for New Zealand is Altair Roja which I always definitely butchered them
but it means land of the long white cloud which is coincidentally what Snoop
Dogg calls his house well ok I assume number 25 the North Island is known in
the native Mallory as tuica a Maori the South Island bt-dubs it’s
known as teh Waipounamu number 26 New Zealand’s capital city is Wellington
which some reason I find hilarious it’s the most southern capital city in the
world – in fact if you want to yes another fact to impress your friends
with also use that on dates – they can they’ll really love it
number 27 Wellington isn’t the most rocker block place in the big NZ though
oh no that honor goes to Auckland I have a feeling it’s about to do what we’re
about to cover in the next fact I reckon so stay tuned number 28 I record because
of this big bad boy the Auckland City sky tower it’s one thousand and seventy
six feet high making it the tallest freestanding structure in the southern
hemisphere I mean that’s why people move to Plato’s right big tall mother’s like
this absolute unit number twenty nine wake up sheeple Auckland New Zealand is
also known as the city of sails because it loves that song by AWOLNATION so damn
much sail just killing exactly because it has the highest boat ownership per
capita in the world in fact one in every three people owned a boat i boy number
30 to give you an idea of how unevenly New Zealand is populated it should be
noted that more people live in Auckland than the entirety of South Island number
30 how much stop there on the last Monday
of January the Auckland anniversary regatta takes place at regard to being a
boating race and not an Italian dessert like I assumed it’s the world’s biggest
single day yachting event with more than 1,000 Botti boys taking part number 32
the New Zealanders city of Gisborne is the first city in the world to see the
Sun Rise it’s also just a mere 300 8.4 miles up
the International Dateline which meant on December 31st 1999 they got major TV
coverage as the first to welcome in the new millennium number 33 oh look at this
this is New Zealand’s ninety Mile Beach looks nice doesn’t it yes something is
gone yes how long it is wrong it’s actually 56 miles long everything is a
lie number 34 if you live in New Zealand you
should probably strap in for the long haul in terms of life itself New
Zealanders females have an average life expectancy of 80 2.3 years and men have
78.3 both of which are one of the highest in the world
number 35 New Zealand is a good country for the ladies too and not just because
the lack of snakes and no I’m not quite sure what I meant by that either NZ
allowed women the boat in 1893 the first country in the whole of planet Earth to
allow suffrage number 36 New Zealanders sing to bloody love wires more
specifically number 8 fencing wire it see
they use it so often it’s become slang for New Zealand disability to fix
everything and using ingenuity and innovation to do so
number 37 New Zealanders refer to themselves as Kiwis which probably dates
back to World War one when New Zealand soldiers acquired the nickname this is
because of the flightless kiwi bird which is native to new zealand itself
number 38 here’s a fact about Kiwis for you in relation to their size their eggs
are the largest in the world they tend away a whole third of the
birds weight oh yes sorry when I said Kiwis just now I met the birds not
humans I should have specified number 39 Kiwis also have a sense of smell
incredibly again the birds do not that great if it was a human they’re actually
the only birds in the world that do number 40 the New Zealanders dollar coin
features a Kiwi bird on one side it could also be called the Kiwi in
international money circles to which no doubt must be confusing for any Kiwis in
the room or any other Kiwis in the room for that matter none 41 the Kiwi is so
beloved in New Zealand that numerous organizations use it in their logos and
signage one such group is the Royal New Zealand Air Force which features the
bird as part of their emblem this is nothing short of a cruel joke made at
the expense of the flightless Kiwi and I for one and shook and demand an apology
the meaning of life New Zealand only has two land mammals that are native to the
dying place specifically two species of bat meaning Bruce Wayne would have
absolutely chuffing loved it just kidding he’s afraid of bats that’s
kind of the whole point Batman everything else was introduced by
Malory’s and Europeans number 43 New Zealand is also home to the wetter bug a
wingless insect endemic to New Zealand that has changed little in the last 190
million years the harmless giant wetter can weigh in excess of 70 grams making
it the world’s heaviest insect number 44 Indiana Jones should live in New Zealand
you know why no not because the zoos are particularly cheap it’s because they’re
apparently absolutely no snakes New Zealand number 45 New Zealand is also
home to Hector’s dolphin which is a species of dolphin not just one dolphin
in particular belonging to a guy called Hector as some people
very reasonably assumed until they corrected one subspecies of Hector’s
dolphin known as Maui’s dolphin is the rarest of smallest dolphin in the world
and it’s nowhere else on earth but in New Zealand waters number 46 New Zealand
is also home to more species of penguin than any other country what you do with
that information is between you and your chosen deity number 47 New Zealand is
also home to the world’s only flightless parrots the kakapo also known as the owl
parrot the kakapo was almost wiped out in 1990s before conservation efforts
began to increase their numbers the kakapo are known for their friendly
nature and their extended life spans with some individuals living to over 90
years of age making the kakapo possibly the longest living bird species in the
world number 48 the closest living relative to the kakapo is the Kea which
is the world’s only Alpine parrot living in the mountains regions of New
Zealand’s South Island unlike its exclusively terrestrial cousin the Kea
can fly which it probably uses as a party trick at family reunions number 49
New Zealand has 44 native reptile species of which the largest is the
tuatara which can grow up to 2 feet long despite that I bet it looks very much
like a lizard it’s actually the only surviving species of a distinct family
of reptiles that became extinct outside of New Zealand 60 million years ago
number 50 the longfin eel and demyx in New Zealand is interesting for a number
of reasons one of which is that these sleepyboys can live up to the ripe old
age of 80 years old that’s pretty much the same life span as in New Zealand
human number 51 longfin eel also breed only once in their entire lives which is
a damn shame not only that the point at which they do get to mate is at the end
of their lives meaning that the only action they get to experience is gross
old people action almost immediately before death even more tragically they
have to swim all the way to Tonga to do it never felt some story for an eel
before number 52 as mentioned before the population New Zealand isn’t that big in
fact there are seven times as many sheep and three times as many cows as there
are people and hello if you’re watching you guys Moo bar number 53 in fact of
the total population sentient organisms in New Zealand only 5% is human with the
rest being made up of entirely non-human animals this gives New Zealand the
highest ratio of animals to human on earth number 54 New Zealand was once
home to the truly enormous flightless birds known as MOA the largest species
of which the giant MOA reached around 12 feet in height her mama was one of the
largest birds to ever inhabit the earth and they were the dominant herbivores in
the islands for thousands of years before they were hunted to extinction by
the Maori in the year 1500 number 55 New Zealand is also home to kauri trees
which take about 200 years to mature the biggest tree boy in all the world is
called the lord of the forest and he’s over 169 feet tall it’s also over 2,100
years old to number 56 does this tree scream Christmas trees well in New
Zealand it does not literally though this is the Mbutu karwa tree which is
New Zealand’s Christmas tree it blooms crimson red fire was for several weeks
each December which is where it gets that soon as he looked from number 57
New Zealand owes much of its natural beauty to the fact of roughly thirty
thousand square kilometres of the country falls within one of its 14
protected national parks the largest lake in New Zealand is lake taupo which
sits in the caldera of the Talpiot volcano one of Earth’s few known super
volcanoes the Talpiot volcanoes most recent eruption known as the IRA warned
eruption occurred roughly 26,000 years ago and constitutes the world’s most
recent super eruption it’s thought the volcano eruption violently ejected about

ports as the u.s. refused to confirm or deny that the vessel was carrying

  2. i dont know how the simpsons miss nz cuzz they have a episode on the simpsons when they put new zealand on the map

  3. i;m a kiwi and I think if your going to make a video about NZ then you should use centermeters, meters and kilometers so then everyone that isn't in the america can understand what you mean because guess what america you are basically the only contrey that uses inchs, feet and mils.

  4. Maori's sound totally different to the stereotypic accents. We honestly don't sound like Australians and wtf is with us being called kiwi? I haven't even seen one.

  5. if you don't have a Girlfriend your likely going to shag a sheep since there are A lot more of them than human

  6. did anyone notice he said Gis – Born rather than the correct pronuciat…. oh wait never mind that just might be our accent.

  7. OMG THE POSSUM DIDNT EVOLVE HERE.(Possums were shipped in from Australia for the fur trade and there GOSH DANG PEST

  8. Bro it doesn’t take long to search how to pronounce a word properly. Considering how much research you did to make this video, you could’ve spared a few more minutes learning how to pronounce the Māori words.

  9. 1 important fact nz is one of world's top 10 socialist countries in the world..and our pronunciation isn't all that great either for example a US park yosemite.. We say "yo.. Zee.. Might" world says "yo.. Sem.. Mit.. Tee" lol

  10. Video Starting
    Me: Lets hope its nothing insulting about us Kiwis/NewZealanders alright? C:

    Video Making fun about our accents and stuff

  12. My sister lives there 10 years now, I pray this beautiful and peaceful country never ever looses their amazing culture and history of how you guys are United.. You guys have the most Rich country in every way.. ♡♡♡♡ much love from: South Africa

  13. Correcting his wording
    Māori = mow ree

    Kakapo – car car poor

    Kauri = Kow ree

    Taupo = tore poor

    Huikitanga = who icky tongue ah

  14. I know alot of Maori and New Zealanders will be offended by this, BUT as a person from New Zealand, I can say this is very funny AND awesome! Keep it up. 🙂

  15. Watched this for 29 minutes and the stupid yank didn’t even mention Lorde or welly wanging! I also get that pronunciation is a bit different for the vowels than British English, and usually ‘wh’ makes an ‘f’ sound but at least an attempt at trying to sound correct is better than nothing!
