After a pause of 70 to 265 years, a new wave of exploration led to the discovery and settlement of New Zealand.
Over the centuries that followed, these settlers developed a distinct culture now known as Māori.
The service sector dominates the national economy, followed by the industrial sector, and agriculture; international tourism is a significant source of revenue.These conflicts, mainly in the North Island, saw thousands of Imperial troops and the Royal Navy come to New Zealand and became known as the New Zealand Wars.Following these armed conflicts, large amounts of Māori land was confiscated by the government to meet settler demands.In addition, New Zealand is organised into 11 regional councils and 67 territorial authorities for local government purposes.
The Realm of New Zealand also includes Tokelau (a dependent territory); the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing states in free association with New Zealand); and the Ross Dependency, which is New Zealand's territorial claim in Antarctica.
New Zealand is a member of the United Nations, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, ASEAN Plus Six, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Forum.
