Line 1: Line 1:
-======= Australia ======= 
  
-The largest island in the world (unless you use a Mercator projection map, in which case it's Greenland, or count Antarctica as an island). Mostly a howling wilderness (see also: [[offtopic:​North and South Dakota]]) inhabited by a number of vicious creatures identifiable by their distinctive cry of "​G'​day!"​. ​ 
- 
-Also home to many dangerous mammals, reptiles, insects and other animals and plants which have evolved a range of defences (many poisonous) as a result of evolutionary pressure from Australians. ​ Rather than asking whether a particular animal is dangerous, it's easier to ask if there'​s any Australian animal which is //not// dangerous. ​ So far, no-one'​s found one. A common misconception is for people to say that some of the sheep are harmless, but that is a dangerous mistake. ​ Many a shearer has met his fate at the hooves of a jealous sheep. Beware of the Drop Bears, crocodiles, and anyone with a colour in their name. 
- 
-Beer Rating: 7/10. Varies greatly by region.

-==== Australia in Alternate History ==== 
- 
-As far as AH is concerned, Australia is a bit like the [[offtopic:​Congo]] in that it's a case of "​[[alternate history:​Randomian Congo|Hmm. Let's try for the most random colonial power possible.]]"​ The most common ones, apart from Britain (as in [[alternate history:​OTL]]),​ are [[offtopic:​the Netherlands]],​ [[offtopic:​France]],​ and (earlier on) [[offtopic:​China]]. ​ For makers of AH maps, this is even more a case of random borders. ​ Many ATL nations are carved out of parts of Australia which could realistically support only a population of 315 kangaroos and one lonely camel. 
- 
-Australian-penned AH tends to be characterised by Australia getting into a war with a militarised expansionist Indonesia at some point in the second half of the 20th century. Even if the POD is in 1600.
