New Zealand is a nation based in the southwestern Pacific ocean. The nation consists of two main islands with many smaller islands just off the coast. The terrain of the two islands vary, with the South island consisting mostly of Mountains and occasional snow and the North consisting mostly of densely forested areas and vast lakes.
The capital, Wanganui, is based on the North Island and is the largest city in terms of town size, the city with the largest population however is the City of Ruatoria again based on the North Island.
13 cities are now part of New Zealand, most of them are on Northern Island and only 4 of them are on Southern Island
