Top definition
Australia. Appropriate nickname because of its location (below Asia) and the extreme differences between Australia and other continents/countries.

Animals: Koalas, Kangaroos, Echidnas, Platypi (Platypusses?), and Tasmanian Devils are creatures that only inhabit Australia in the wild.

Seasons: Australian summer is most other countries' winter, and vice versa.

Land: Mostly desert and open plains. Probably contains the highest percent of desert of any continent (Antarctica is tundra, not desert).

This would also be a good nickname for Antarctica, which is literally under every continent.
I'm not sure if the Land Down Under has any urban slang, unless you consider "Blimey!" and "mate" to be UrbanSpeak.

Where women glow and men plunder

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."
