'''Niue''' is an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the "Rock of Polynesia." Natives of the island call it "the Rock." Although self-governing, Niue is in free association with [[New Zealand|New Zealand]], meaning that the Sovereign in right of New Zealand is also Niue's head of state. Most diplomatic relations are conducted by New Zealand on Niue's behalf. Niue is located 2,400 kilometres north-east of New Zealand, in a triangle between [[Tonga (Pacific Island Guide)|Tonga]], [[Samoa|Samoa]] and the [[Cook Islands|Cook Islands]]. The people are predominantly Polynesian.
