    16 Harsh Rejections Of New Zealand As A Country

    WE EXIST WE PROMISE.

    1. All around the world, New Zealanders have to deal with a pretty crumby representation on maps.

    2. It doesn't matter if they're made out of flowers...

    3. Or on huge sky towers with holographic representations of a New Zealand-less world.

    4. New Zealand, by all accounts, has NO people on it.

    5. When New Zealand *IS* included we just kinda get a few blurs here and there...

    6. Or an ugly, spewed up bit of land.

    7. Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll get a small name tag that just says AUCKLAND.

    8. Sometimes, they get us in the right place – but then put us on the map TWICE.

    9. Great artists and sculptors have no time for us...

    10. And the American President doesn't even bother.

    11. "Universally designed" jewelry doesn't quite mean what it should...

    12. SERIOUSLY. LOOK AT THIS. THIS ISN'T NEW ZEALAND!!!!

    13. WHERE DO I BEGIN. IT'S ALL WRONG. NEW ZEALAND ISN'T MADAGASCAR?!?!!

    14. IT'S NOT HARD. THIS GUY MADE A PERFECT NEW ZEALAND WITH *GOD* *DAMN* CRUMBS!

    15. NOT EVEN RISK. RISK. THE GAME. ON THE BOARD. ABOUT WAR. WHICH NEW ZEALAND HAS BEEN IN. NOT EVEN RISK PUTS US ON THEIR GOD DAMN MAP.

    16. Remember us, for we are here. And we're not disappearing any time soon.
