He rohe motuhake o Papatūānuku, kei reira ōna tāngata e noho ana me ō rātou ahurea. He kāwanatanga tō tēnā whenua, tō tēnā whenua, he pūnaha ture, pūnaha ohaoha anō hoki.
A distinct territory on Earth with its own peoples and cultures. Each country has its own government, as well as its own judicial and economic system.
Ko tā ia whenua, he whakatū i ā rātou tikanga whakamaru whenua kia kore ai e whakawhiti mai he tangata, he hautaonga rānei kāore e whaimana ana i raro i te ture. Ka kīia tērā ko te whakamaru pae kati. Ka aukatia te hekenga taihara kia haumaru ai te taha pāpori, te taha tōrangapū me te taha ōhanga o te whenua.
