New Zealand according to Google Autocomplete

Map2

I got the idea for this from an io9 post which shows a map of the USA with each state labelled with whatever comes up when you type “Why is [state name] so…” into Google. I had to change it to “Why is [place name…” because otherwise NOTHING comes up for most New Zealand towns.

Only two of the results aren’t New Zealand specific, which is impressive when you consider that all our English place names are second-hand.
