My guess:

New Zealand

Why?

Clue 1:

It's... next to Down Under (Australia)

Clue 2:

And they will be the... second

This one is the hardest, and I didn't know what to do with the first two. But then I realized:

"The difference" "Bee-tween" "2:00" and "2:00:02" = "2 seconds" -s (- "seconds") = "2" = "second"

Clue 3:

To enjoy the... New Year's Resolution

But why?

On New Year's day, New Zealand is on its DST, which moves it from UTC+12 to UTC+13, one hour behind +14 Kiribati, along with several other countries. But, because the Chatham Islands are +¾ to the rest of New Zealand, part of New Zealand actually enters the new year in uncontested second place.
