It's a game setting so anything's possible, but I don't think it's likely. The Maori have political clout, they have land, they were full citizens of the British Empire from the moment the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. New Zealanders tend to pull together during difficult times, rather than try to tear the country apart.


They'd no doubt insist on being heard, but as a group I doubt the Maori would want to secede. The Maori bikie gangs are pretty scary though. In areas where government control started to weaken, they'd probably flex their muscles a bit.
