New Zealand is an Oceanian island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses – that of the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland. A member of the Commonwealth of Nations, it has friendly relations with Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and several countries; and is also currently a major-non NATO ally of the United States of America.
In Homefront, the fate of New Zealand is not mentioned; however, it can be assumed that the country was affected by the global economic and energy crisis. Like Australia, the country faces invasion from the Greater Korean Republic due to it's alliance with the United States and it's proximity to GKR-controlled Southeast Asia. It is probable that the New Zealand Defense Force have joined forces with the Australia Defense Force in the likely case of an invasion from the GKR. The country may be a where some Americans escaped during the Korean invasion of the United States. Another possibility is that along with the Australian Navy, they have been defending their coastline from the Koreans, as well as having naval skirmishes with the KPA, and to the unlikely extent of helping the remnants of the US Navy reclaim American Overseas territories in the Pacific and making their country, along with Australia, a hub for the remaining US Navy ships.
Australia and New Zealand may send aid to the United States along with the European Union, but this is all subject to speculation.
