Which country has a similar shape and size to New Zealand and is at much the same distance from the equator?
Japan fits this criteria.
If Britain is an Island and part of the Continent of Europe then why is New Zealand not part of the Australian Continent?
Britain is geographically very close to the Continental land mass of Europe. The distance from Britain to Saudi Arabia is similar to the distance from New Zealand to Australia, and there is no land mass linking New Zealand to Australia; but a large sea separating them. New Zealand is a geograhically and physically isolated country; an island group and nation; not part of a continent.
Just one: New Zealand, an independent country in its own right. However, there is a "Realm of New Zealand", which encompasses several separate, self-governing entities. These are New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Nuie, Tokelau, and the Ross Dependency. Also included in this Realm are a number of uninhabited and remote islands, such as Campbell, Auckland and similar. These do not constitute countries of New Zealand.
It's similar but not completely alike. New Zealand uses a mixture of British, Australian, New Zealand and Maori sign language, and is actually called BANZSL British, Australian and New Zealand Sign Language). BANZSL is 62.5% similar to British Sign Language (about the same similarity as German and English.)
Tasmania is part of Australia. A similar climate can be found in the state of Victoria, Australia. The country of New Zealand has a similar climate to that of Tasmania, as both places are islands well in the south. The main difference is that, overall, New Zealand is colder than Tasmania. Tasmania's weather is also very similar to England, in some respects, as it has four distinct seasons with similar average temperatures. However, England does…
umm.....because it's cold. at higher elevations (i.e. in the Andes mountains), it's quite chilly. also, remember that it's the distance from the equator that determines climate. in southern south America, the climate would be similar to northern north America, only the reverse of our seasons -- when it's hot in the U.S., it's cold 'down there'.
No. Their national flags are similar but they are completely separate countries. Australia is the only place in the world which is both a country and a complete continent, and New Zealand is not part of any continent. New Zealand and Australia are separated by the Tasman Sea. New Zealand is sometimes referred to as part of Australasia, or Oceania, neither of which are continents, but a geographic or regional groups of countries. It is…
New Zealand and Australia are very similar in the ways that they are both English speaking countries, housing and living are very much the same, they were both founded by the british, the main religions are the same. Also if you are a New Zealand citizen you are able to live in Australia and work in Australia without any working visa or citizenship, and vice versa.
