New Zealand is a constitutional monarchy. The British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, is the monarch of New Zealand. She appoints a governor general to represent her, but the governor general has little power. The legislation, prime minister, and Cabinet run the national government. Britain gave New Zealand a constitution in 1852, when it was a British colony. Today, the nation has no written constitution.
The first people who settled in New Zealand were a brown-skinned people called Maoris. They came from Polynesian islands located northeast of New Zealand. The country was discovered by Europeans in 1642. Today, most New Zealanders are descendants of the early European settlers. Maoris make up about 12% of the country’s population.

Near a fifth of New Zealand’s people live in rural areas – in some of them, small settlements are linked by good roads.
There are no extreme contrasts in temperature in New Zealand. The total national rainfall average is over 1100mm annually. A considerable area of land is covered by meadows and heaths. The grass remains green all the year round. Thanks to climate conditions, New Zealand in truth looks like one great well-ordered park with its old trees, green meadows and hedges.
There are many animals in New Zealand. The most dangerous animal is the shark. However, there are normally a lot of beach patrols and protective nets to stop these from eating you for breakfast.

Large cities have excellent restaurants, milk bars, where people eat different food. Such as roast beef, chicken, a lot of vegetables and fruits, dessert and drinks. New Zealanders eat a lot of meat, drink a lot of juices and more butter because New Zealand have a high standard of living.
There are many kinds of shops, but most of them have a food supermarket, a department store, men’s and women’s clothing store, grocery, a bakery, a butchery. In a food supermarket people buy many different things at once: fish, sugar, flour, tea sausages. At the butcher’s there is a wide choice of meat and poultry. At the bakery they buy brown and white bread, rolls, biscuits. At dairy they buy milk, cheese, butter and many other products.
There are many professions in New Zealand. Such as doctor, fireman, teacher, policeman, interpreter, businessman, assistant, journalist. All of these professions are very important in our life.

February 14 is St.Valentine’s Day, it is a day for choosing sweetheart and exchanging love-tokens. Halloween is celebrated on October 31. Halloween's customs date back to a time when people believed in devils, witches. Another Halloween’s custom is to scrape out a pumpkin, cutting eyes, nose and mouth in its side and lighting a candle inside.
Millions of people in New Zealand like travelling. They travel to see other countries and continents, modern cities. Such as London, USA, Scotland, Wales, Australia, Britain and many others. It is always interesting to discover new things, different ways of life, to meet different people, to try different food. They spend time visiting museums and art galleries, looking at shop windows and dining at exotic restaurants. Most travellers take a camera with them and take pictures of everything that interest them.
