New Zealand[]

New Zealand, Maori Aotearoa, island country in the South Pacific Ocean, the southwesternmost part of Polynesia. New Zealand is a remote land—one of the last sizable territories suitable for habitation to be populated and settled—and lies more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) southeast of Australia, its nearest neighbour. The country comprises two main islands—the North and South islands—and a number of small islands, some of them hundreds of miles from the main group. The capital city is Wellington and the largest urban area Auckland; both are located on the North Island. New Zealand administers the South Pacific island group of Tokelau and claims a section of the Antarctic continent. Niue and the Cook Islands are self-governing states in free association with New Zealand.

Keith Holyoake[]

The Holyoake connection with New Zealand goes back to 1843, when the great-grandparents of Keith Jacka Holyoake settled at Riwaka, near Motueka, and it was there that he spent much of his youth and began his farming career. He was born, however, at Scarborough (Mangamutu), near Pahiatua, on 11 February 1904. His parents, Henry Victor Holyoake and his wife, Esther Eves, ran a small general store. Subsequently the family lived in Hastings and in Tauranga, then, after the death of Keith’s grandfather in December 1913, they settled on the family’s hop, tobacco and fruit farm at Riwaka.

Dawn of Man[]

"New Zealand looks to its honoured and dignified leader in Sir Keith Holyoake. Growing up a humble farmer, the virtues of hard and honest work would be your guiding principles. A defender of mixed economics but ever-weary of socialism, you set about in the formation of the conservative National Party, at the helm of which you would serve as leader and Prime Minister for over a decade. Few leaders since have been as honoured for their diplomatic style and economic sense as when you governed.

Prime Minister, New Zealand seeks a return to the modest days of its youth, when hard-work and a stoic life was the path to success. Can you take on the party leadership once more? Can you balance the economic security of New Zealanders with her prosperity as a nation? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "On behalf of New Zealanders, I welcome you. I am Keith Holyoake."

Defeat: "So be it. I leave the fate of New Zealand in your hands."
