In terms of international prominence, it's known that New Zealand can often be overlooked due to its isolated location and small population, with many a foreigner believing the country is simply part of its much bigger trans-Tasman neighbour.
But as it turns out, that's not the only area where Kiwis are getting the short end of the stick.
Recent research has revealed that Kiwi blokes are, well, decidedly average downstairs. The survey was conducted by From Mars, a UK-based online men's wellness company and registered pharmacy, to rank the nations with the world's largest - and smallest - penises.
The pharmacy collated data from Google to determine the average size of the appendage in 86 countries, with New Zealand sitting in 50th place - a ranking Kiwi blokes across the motu will likely dismiss as cockeyed.
"Whether people are concerned about the size or the shape, or any other aspect for that matter, most of us have wondered at some point or another whether ours is big enough," said pharmacist Navin Khosla, who reviewed the study.
"Penis size can have a massive impact on confidence and self-image."
When erect, Kiwi men were found to have an average length of 13.99cm - but unfortunately, our mulleted mates across the Tasman outstripped that by mere millimetres, ranking 43rd with an average length of 14.46cm. However, Aotearoa did come before both the UK and the US, with average lengths of 13.58cm and 13.13cm respectively.
The study found that chaps in the South American nation of Ecuador were the most well-endowed, with an average length of 17.61cm. Cameroon, Bolivia, Sudan and Haiti rounded out the top five, all averaging over 16cm.
At just over 10cm, men in Cambodia were found to have the smallest penises on average, with Taiwan and the Philippines only slightly ahead.
However, a key limitation of the study was that the research relied on men self-reporting the size of their sausages - meaning it's highly likely some overestimated.
But fear not - Khosla has assured men on the shorter side that at the end of the day, size isn't the be-all and end-all.
"The truth is that the owner of the penis is far more likely to be worried about the size of their penis than their sexual partners are."
