NZ PM Jacinda Ardern & funnyman Rhys Darby team up for a special investigation

NZ PM Jacinda Ardern
It seems there’s a growing collection of maps throughout the world that have one glaringly obvious omission – New Zealand. 

With international news channels like the BBC, Condé Nast Traveler and the Telegraph getting wind of the situation, and a social channel discussion board with almost 40,000 members in full swing, it’s little wonder the news is spreading and theories are abounding. 

From the world map on Getty’s stock photo library, to Shutterstock, to the souvenir globe at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, it seems little old New Zealand is nowhere to be seen! 

Then there are the television weather reports, board games, coffee shops, world globes…not to mention Central Park Zoo! 

For a country that’s bigger in land area than the UK, and more than two-thirds the size of either Japan or Germany – a landmass that includes a lake around the same size as Singapore, has a mountain chain that’s bigger than the entire European Alps and more coastline than California, Alaska and Florida all rolled up together, it’s unfathomable New Zealand has been accidentally missed off. 

A growing collection of New Zealand fans are convinced it must be a global conspiracy to deliberately leave New Zealand out of the picture and are keen for answers. 

LA-based Kiwi actor and comedian Rhys Darby has alerted Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to this issue, and she’s keen for him to get to the bottom of things. 

There are hundreds of reasons why New Zealand is most definitely on the world map, so it’s time to get to the bottom of why it’s missing and set things straight!
