Australia/New Zealand is an uncommon between the Oceania characters, Australia and New Zealand. The pairing otherwise goes by the name AusZea or OzNz. OzNz comes from the word Aus called as 'Oz' combine with the two capital letters in New Zealand. NewStralia comes from an American author that thinks that New Zealand should be in Australia.
England has appointed New Zealand to take care of Australia since he is very responsible and could keep an eye on him. Australia has a high-strung and impulsive attitude, making New Zealand to sometimes become irritated with his actions and for once, asking for England's permission to hit him. The intention is that he doesn't want the nation to behave strangely and reflecting on himself. He encourages Australia, hoping that he won't make England worry about them.
It is also proven that he is very competitive with Australia when it comes to sports and hates losing to him. On occasions, he'll call the latter 'Oz' or have petty quarrels with him.
Australia is wild, impulsive and meanwhile New Zealand has a carefree personality and can be too big-hearted. When these two clash, they'll reflect on each other and become very close. Most manga appearances involving one of them usually also has the other one.
When it comes to fan-based projects, most fans rather use the Canon AU where they both are countries. This is due to the fact that if they are portrayed in a different AU, they both need to bear family names and the most preferred one is 'Kirkland'. This leads to incest even though they both aren't related, this is to prevent confusion. There are times when fans will only use their first names, no family names included.
