Merger of Template:Realm of New Zealand into this template[edit]

I believe that the template "Realm of New Zealand" is useless because all info contained in that template is, at the same time, contained in this one with much more detail. Couldn't we just merge the "Realm of New Zealand" template into this template and change this template's name to "Administrative divisions of the Realm of New Zealand"?

I agree with you. The "Realm of NZ" template only has a couple of links, anyway. Though I'm not sure I'd change the name of the template to include "of the Realm"; that's pretty wordy, and the "Realm" part is rarely needed anyway. Teemu Leisti (talk) 10:23, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

New Zealand header stretches over Tokelau and the Ross Dependency[edit]

Both are territories of New Zealand, while Niue and the Cook Islands are sovereign states within the realm. [Soffredo] 13:31, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

True, but the relevant line of the table is called "States and dependencies", so the table is meant to treat all the states (NZ, CI, Niue) and dependencies (Ross Dep., Tokelau) equally there. --Avenue (talk) 16:44, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
