Over here in New Zealand, the iPhone will be so OP (overpriced, what else were you thinking?). Even the current iPhone 5 retails for $800 USD base model, so I expect the 5c to be $750 at least.

Dude have you seen PB Tech's prices, especially for the gold versions, they are ridiculous. For example the gold 16 GB iPhone 5S is currently $1,493.85, that's about the same as the 11" MacBook Air.

That's because you're so far from the rest of the world. Things affordable in the US are always significantly more expensive in NZ and Australia. I work with some Aussies and they'd rather shop in London than shop in Australia it's that much more expensive.
