Interesting Sidenote -
When I was visiting New Zealand, I was told by several New Zealanders (one of them a lawyer) that you cannot sue an individual for a tort. If harm comes to you, you basically are suing the government to get money for injuries that comes out of a pool of money. This pool of money is paid into by everyone that is collected by a tax.
