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.more...
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.

2. A term of nationality for a United States citizen, a nation who's population approximates 70% of western europe. Certain states within said nation are larger and more densly populated than many countries within Western Europe, which makes travel within and particularly outside of the nation monetarily prohibative for approximately 50% of the population. For that percentage, governmental working standards do not provide paid holiday remotely simiar to world standards (10 days per year.) These conditions prohibit experience outside of a limited sphere and therefore perpetuate ignorance and indifference. This results in the unfortunate election and re-election of a system who maintains these standards in the name of 'patriotism' and 'freedom;' whilst never really providing either iconic ideal. This group maintains psychological function by instituting self-protecting biases of uniqueness and self importance to maintain integrity, and anything that threatens it is fiercly defended against, furthering the vicious circle. Perhaps after witnessing certain evidential and undeniable mistakes of their chosen system of rule, the population will over time begin to realize that the government is providing more regulations than freedoms and will moderate their opinions accordingly. With the passage of time, perhaps these citizens can accept, and be accepted to a place among the world's great nations, rather than claiming t...
An Australian expression of disbelief.

|28.||rock this bitch|
A Ben Folds fan randomly yelled this at one of his concerts in Chicago. Ben made up a song about it on the spot, and since then it became a signature tune of Ben Folds at his live shows. A friend of Ben Folds made him a bet that he couldn't change the tune of Rock This Bitch at every show for an entire year. He took on the bet, and everytime he played Rock This Bitch, he changed the tune and lyrics, doing a country version, a polka version, and many other variations, like Rock Out With Your Cock Out and even did it to The Weather Channel music. However, he grew pretty tired of the song after a while and officially retired Rock This Bitch while playing with The Western Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth.
Fan in the audience: Rock this bitch. Rock this bitch!
Ben Folds: Rock this bitch?
Fan in the audience (along with even more fans): ROCK THIS BITCH!!!
Ben Folds: Okay.
