Overview Edit

Australia (now officially The Republic of Australia) is a large island nation situated in the southern hemisphere between the Indian and South Pacific ocean. It is the 6th largest country in the world by land mass, though the majority of this land is uninhabitable. As a result, most major cities were founded on the coast coast line. Australia was colonized by the British in 1770, with the purpose of serving as a penal colony, but before this, Australia had been inhabited by native Aboriginals for between 40,000 and 125,000 years.
