New Zealand is a country in the southern hemisphere and is a neighbour (but not a bordering country) to Australia, Fiji, New Caledonia and other islands.
The country's OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) is responsible for the rating system for games. New Zealand sold the full versions of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV, while Australia had censored versions with some content removed. This is because New Zealand has an 18+ rating for games, whilst Australia lacked this until 2013, meaning that particularly violent or sexually explicit games may have been refused classification and banned from sale or required substantial editing to meet the highest (MA15) rating in Australia. Consequently it was common for Australian gamers to illegally import their R18 titles from NZ.
