I had a seven-hour layover in the Delhi (India) airport last year, and struck up a conversation with a Nepal tour guide who happened to be a New Zealand national. I have long been interested in that country, and I asked her what New Zealand's largest current problem was. Her response was "people." "We don't have enough people."

If there was ever a country that I'd consider emmigrating to, New Zealand would be at or near the top of the list.
