Simply the best country in the world. Yeah, some of us do live in the country with kangaroos hopping by. Like me. I do. But the majority of us live in beautiful cities by our beautiful beaches that I know you are all jealous of because our beaches rock.
We have a friendly rivalry with New Zealand. Kiwis, we really do love you. You had our backs in WW, (ANZACs all the way!) and we will always have your backs, so if you think we hate you, you're wrong. We secretly love you. But we still flog ass in rugby :P
But you have better accents than us.
Australians are very laid back, friendly, open people that will basically welcome you into their homes if you just go knocking on their doors. But don't do that, they might freak out. Strangers will smile at you and say hello on the streets, especially in Perth. Strangers will wave to you as they drive past in the country. So if you're not accustomed to amazing hot people that wave and smile at you, then don't come to Australia.
Person 1: Who is that hot awesome sexy talented tanned friendly waving person over there?
Person 2: That's an Australian.
Person 1: And who is that hot awesome sexy talented tanned friendly person with the sick accent over there? They're great. But they suck at rugby.
Person 2: That's a Kiwi.
A kickass country/continent in the south pacific. Population of about twenty million. Has been lived on for many thousands of years. First by aboriginal people until the British arrived in the late 1700's and used the land for convict settlement BUT is now one of the most satisfied countries on earth and many many people come from all over the world to see its well known monuments, culture and people.
DUDE lets go to Australia this summer!
Australia: Home of the british convicts
Population: 20.5 million
tourist: whats this place called?
Australia: its a Ozstrayleeya maaaatee!
tourist: well it sucks
A fucking wasteland excuse of a country that prides itself on so called "conservation" and "saving the world"
And they honor these morals by raping and pillaging ALL the good acres of land for poorly built fucking expensive houses in which only Asian bastards and American cunts can buy only to turn into rentals where the fee's are unfair and high.
But this won't stop Australians pride themselves on valuing the economy and tourism and destroying precious forests to build more houses for people that don't live here, not to mention the center is a desert and the best parts to live are around the coast where all the forest is, so if the forest is in the way of $ forest gotta go!
Australia is just as full of cocksucking bullshit, braindead shitheaded faggots and Australians equivelant of rednecks (see RSL club members) that ignore all flaws and pride Australia for what it Once was, now its an overdeveloped shithole with a diminishing wildlife population.
I am Australian and it was once a country i loved, and its being destroyed for profits sake.
Fast facts on Australia:
-- Our population is 20,595,860 appox; and increases by one person every 2 minutes and 12 seconds. (Unlike the US which breeds like rabbits: one person every 10 seconds...)
-- 95% of those people live in cities similar to those in the US and UK, albeit a little smaller. But our infrastructure is comparable.
-- Over 75% of our adult population disagree with the Government's Foreign Policies (well... actually, almost all of its policies, but we can't be stuffed starting a civil war to make things change...).
-- Our military IS the most highly trained combat force in the world.
-- Our medical research is the best in the world. Most of the major breakthroughs in the last few years came from Australia. Especially cancer research. Other nations ask our scientists for help...
-- Our public healthcare system doesn't just rival that of the US, it KICKS ITS ARSE! Every citizen of Australia is entitled to FREE basic public healthcare and emergency hospital treatment (if necessary).
-- Our education system also rivals those of other 1st world nations.
-- Steve Irwin is a rare specimen of low-brow individuals without formal education and does not represent the vast majority of us. (In simpler terms for Americans and Kiwis: Irwin is an idiot that most of us want to beat to death).
-- Koalas are not BEARS!!
-- Humvees are sold in Australia.
-- In country towns, kangaroos RARELY hop down main streets.
-- Gun related deaths in the US each year: over 10,...
North of the Southern Ocean, and situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Australia is the world's smallest continent and largest island.
Isolated from other countries, we have a diverse variety of fauna and wildlife that can be found nowhere else in the world. Our unique array of animals (koalas
in particular) attract hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, as do our brilliant beaches, our stunning mountain ranges, crystalline blue waters and harsh beauty of the Australian outback. (Outback = desert for all you uneducated cretins).
We have the world's largest coral reef (the Great Barrier Reef
), the world's largest monolith (Uluru
, formerly known as Ayre's Rock), and we have the world's largest Uranium depostis, as well as major deposits of copper, iron, coal, oil and natural gas.
Yes, we have an accent, though compared to what you hear on movies such as Crocodile Dundee
, our accents are definitely not that strong. The Eastern accent is stronger than the accent of Aussies that live on the West Coast.
Our weather is awesome. Winter isn't too cold (unless you're one of the unfortunate people to be living in Tas...
The Commonwealth of Australia is a country in the Southern Hemisphere and is the world's smallest continent and the largest island with a number of smaller islands in the Southern, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Australia's neighbouring countries are Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia to the north-east, and New Zealand to the south-east.
The continent of Australia has been inhabited for over 40,000 years by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. After many visits by European explorers and merchants from the 17th century and onwards, the eastern half of the continent was claimed by the British in 1770, and officially settled as the penal colony of New South Wales on 26 January 1788. As the population grew and new areas were explored, another five largely self-governing Crown Colonies were successively established over the course of the 19th century.
On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated and the Commonwealth of Australia was formed. Since federation, Australia has kept a stable liberal democratic political system and remains a Commonwealth Realm. The current population of around Australia is around 20.4 million and is concentrated mainly in the coastal cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Australia consists of six states and several territories. The states are New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. The two mainland territories are the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT); the federal government administers a separate area within New South Wales, the Jervis Bay Territory, as a naval base and sea port for the national capital.
most of the territories work similarly to the states, but the Commonwealth Parliament can override any legislation of their parliaments. By contrast, federal legislation overrides state legislation only with respect to certain areas as set out in the Constitution; all residual legislative powers are retained by the state parliaments, including powers over hospitals, education, police, the judiciary, roads, public transport and local government.
Each state and territory has its own bicameral parliament (unicameral in the case of Queensland, the Northern Territory and the ACT). The lower house is known as the Legislative Assembly (House of Assembly in South Australia and Tasmania) and the upper house the Legislative Council. The heads of the governments in each state and territory are called premiers and chief ministers, respectively. The Queen is represented in each state by a governor; an administrator in the Northern Territory, and the Governor-General in the ACT, have analogous roles.
Australia's landmass comprises 7,686,850 km² and is on the Indo-Australia...
The best country in the world no matter what is said. Yes, our ancestors were convicts, yes we love our beer, and yes we may be conceited about how bloody good we are at sport, but you can't say any other patriotic mofo out there doesnt think that their country is the best. No we do have the best military in the world, the SAS, best trained and most successful fighting force known to man. We may not have the numbers but we can kick ass. We are not woman hitters, you may think we are sexest but the females over here got their rights before most other countries and like the aussie males. Doesn't every country have its criminals? its shamers? its racists? People say we have no culture, every single culture there is adds bits of it into our massive mix. If we didnt accept other cultures there would always be racial violence and demonstrations but we have barely any of that at all, if any. You don't see no KKK down here. And no, the US is not the hottest country, sorry, no offence and all but you have the largest obesity rate and to put it nicely, you's look funny. And plz don't say our accent is bad, becoz every foreign person i know, loves our accent the way we talk, and people are always commenting on our looks. And any slang we make up to annoy other races etc is purely friendly and jokingly, we don't mean it for sure but if people are as offended so easily that they cant detect sarcasm then they should come out here for a week.And sorry, but basketball baseball and gridiro...more...
