Australia is a boomerang-shaped country and continent in the southern hemisphere. Australia marks the boundary between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Australia is nearer the Equator than Europe. The South of Australia has a pleasant climate like the Mediterranean while the North of Australia has hot Deserts. Gay marriage isn't recognised in Australia. 
Australia has a long, confusing, and often inaccurately recounted history written by the white settlers. It is well known that early Neocons used Australia as a prison colony for the poor innocent liberals, and evil conservative criminals that were too dangerous to be allowed to live close to anyone. "Discovered" by Cook in 1770, though it is known that a Dutchman "discovered" it in the 1600s. Note that the continent was discovered before 30,000 BCE by Native Australians.
Australia has a democracy and a culture that is similar to the United States. They also sent billionaire overlord Rupert Murdoch's parents there before he was born, in order to use the child to subjugated the entire continent. Rupert Murdoch was born in South Australia where his parents owned the newspaper, "The Advertiser". The Country was controlled by the Liberal Party, which is not liberal and is no party either, rather a bunch of Conservatives dedicated to supplicating themselves to George W. Bush when he was there but now to any other handy rich and powerful white men who say they love the Democrats. Australia has Universal Health Care which makes the country more Liberal than the United States at least in that respect. 
Between 2011 and 2013 Australia had a Labor Government with Julia Gillard as Prime Minister. She is a Welsh born migrant woman who came here as a child & got more benefits than an Australian born, native or otherwise. She's right wing in some areas and left wing in others. Australians sadly now have a conservative government again.
