- Why would “New Zealand” be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington D.C., in the United States?
- Why would “New Zealand” have provided Annual Reports and be subject to SEC regulation?
- Could the “New Zealand Government” be a corporate entity masquerading as real government, for profit, and not for the purpose of governance?
- Does the “New Zealand Government” truly represent “the people” and not shareholders in another country?
- If a company registered in Washington DC is falsely claiming government status in New Zealand, what happened to the real (de jure) government with a similar name? And when?
- Are the laws in New Zealand therefore just rules for employees and contractors of the corporation?
Perhaps it is a requirement that New Zealand registers as a company entity in order to trade with the United States of America. Are all the other countries who trade with the United States also registered on the American SEC? Is ‘the United States of America’ also registered with the New Zealand Companies Register, ASIC (the Australian Securities & Investments Commission) and the respective company registry organisations for all of its other trading partners? And is New Zealand similarly registered with the corresponding trade regulators in other countries? It would appear not.
Let us reference some legal terms from Black’s Law Dictionary. (Black's Law Dictionary is the most widely used law dictionary. It was founded by Henry Campbell Black (1860-1927). It is the reference of choice for definitions in legal briefs and court opinions and has been cited as a secondary legal authority in many U.S. Supreme Court cases).

What is CORPORATION? An artificial person or legal entity created by or under the authority of the laws of a state or nation, composed, in some rare instances, of a single person and his successors, being the incumbents of a particular oltice, but ordinarily consisting of an association of numerous individuals, who subsist as a body politic under a special denomination, which is regarded In law as having a personality and existence distinct from that of its several members, and which is, by the same authority, vested with the capacity of continuous succession, irrespective of changes in its membership, either in perpetuity or for a limited term of years, and of acting as a unit or single individual in matters relating to the common purpose of the association, within the scope of the powers and authorities conferred upon such bodies by law. - The Law Dictionary Featuring Black’s Law Dictionary (See key sources)
What is COMPANY? A society or association of persons, in considerable number, interested in a common object, and uniting themselves for the prosecution of some commercial or industrial undertaking, or other legitimate business. The proper signification of the word “company,” when applied to persons engaged in trade, denotes those united for the same purpose or in a joint concern. It is so commonly used in this sense, or as indicating a partnership, that few persons accustomed to purchase goods at shops, where they are sold by retail, would misapprehend that such was its meaning. - The Law Dictionary Featuring Black’s Law Dictionary (See key sources)
What is BODY CORPORATE? A corporation.

In summary, what one may determine by way of the above definitions would be that it is not possible for an entity to be both a corporation [including the definitions of both a company and a body corporate as previously ascertained] and a government (as one would hope and expect) – and given that such definitions are mutually exclusive; an entity simply can not be both a government and a corporation. Therefore, a corporation that falsely presents itself as a government would be null and void in the very least – illegal at least.
