Wow I wouldn't have expected it from New Zealand either! Learn something every day.

That's odd that New Zealand has such a high proportion of suicides amongst young people, it always seemed to me a pretty ideal country to live in, space, nature, mountains, English speaking people.

I would imagine that NZ probably holds some old fashioned views which could alienate its youth.

I guess it might be difficult with a cultural heritage that's part indigenous and part immigrant or European. I heard that the Hobbit villages they built for Lord of the Rings ended up becoming quite a big tourist attraction but with only a couple of hundred years of cultural record those kinds of things might be a bit rare... I also remember hearing comments like there's a lot more sheep than people.
