I just love the attractive colours and different goodies we have to find in this series! Nice job! (Even if, like many overseas Jetpunkers, NZ quizzes keep including Pacific nations we don't think of as part of NZ). Just one detail - the Southern Alps run a fair bit further north as well, along the Canterbury border to about halfway between Christchurch and Nelson - see here. Tokelau actually consists of three atolls, though I guess you only had space to include Nukunono, which is about double the size of the other two, Fakaofo and Atafu.

I added the Pacific countries because I was looking for something that non-New Zealanders could get. I could have drawn Tokelau like I did the Cook Islands, but I wanted to keep the atoll shape. Therefore I only included Nukunono. Also, I will fix the boundaries of the Southern Alps once I get a chance to. Thanks :)

As a New Zealander, I loved this quiz! Coming from a country where we're used to people forgetting we exist, this was a great change! I loved your inclusion of the Maori names for Mount Cook and Stewart Island too!

Apologies, 'Mount Cook' will now work.
