OT - Perl Question

I am trying to learn perl.  I am going through a tutorial and have come
across a syntax error I can't figure out.

Here's the code:

print "Please tell me your name: ";
chop ($name=<STDIN>);

print "Please tell me your nationality: ";
chop ($nation=<STDIN>);

if ( $nation eq "British"  or  $nation eq "New Zealand" )
 print "Hallo $name, pleased to meet you!\n";


when I try to run it, it generates a compile errors on the
if line.

I know its the conditional test, but don't know how to fix
it to be syntactically correct in perl.

Any help?
