The Commonwealth of Syndic Australia (prefixed as such to delineate from the previous 'Colonial' or 'Imperial' Australic regime) is a sovereign polity constituting the entirety of the Australic continent as well as the adjacent islands of Tasmania, New Zealand, Fiji, and others in the near Pacific. It disputes the islands of New Guinea with neighbouring Indonesia and has been in a state of cold war with Indonesia regarding the territory for much of the past century. Excepting the population of New Guinea, Australia's population was last estimated in 2023 to be approximately 35.91 million, and its area, again excepting New Guinea, approximately 8,090,000sqkm.
Its capital is the city of Canberra, located within the Australic Capital Territory, founded in 1913 as a constructed capital for the nation's Federal government and home to just under 600 000. Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, is the most populous city in Australia, with a population of just over 4 million, followed closely by Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales.
The official language of Australia is Austro-Anglic, a dialect of English. Most Australics are bilingual, and almost all Australics are literate.
Australia is a Federal Parliamentary Syndicalist Republic. A Federal country is one which is comprised of several states who collectively divest some governmental powers into a higher, common government; Australia is comprised of 14 states and 2 territories that divest certain powers to the Federal government. A Parliamentary country is one in which the head of government is drawn directly from its legislature; in Australia, the Prime Minister is drawn from the House of Representatives in the Federal Parliament. A Syndicalist country is one in which trade unions function as an independent organ of government alongside a regular democratic government; the executive in Australia, apart from the Prime Minister, consists of syndicates, which are trade unions. A Republic is a country in which the head of state is democratically elected; in Australia, the position of Head of State is shared between a representative council drawn from the Senate in the Federal Parliament - this could be referred to as a Directorial Republic, as opposed to the more common Presidential Republic.
Cz. Gene O'Caelleigh of the Industrial Socialist Party is the current Prime Minister of Australia, having served in this capacity since 2019, alongside Deputy Prime Minister Lorraine Fischer of the Christian Social Democrats. Federal Cabinet Ministers and State/Territory Premiers are listed here.
The currency of Australia is the Australic Decimal Pound (£ ADP). The currency was decimalised in the mid-1920s. It is a form of representative currency that derives its value from the intrinsic value of labor; that is to say that the price of all commodities and therefore the value of one ADP is based upon the standard wage for one hour of labor.
Australia was originally inhabited by various groups of aboriginal peoples, who have lived on the continent for at least 65,000 years. Its pacific territories were first settled by Polynesians, who remain the majority in these areas today. The Australic continent was colonised by the Britannic Empire on January 26th, 1788, to be utilised as a penal colony for criminals, cultural pariahs, and impoverished undesirables.
Despite several uprisings, including the chartist Eureka Rebellion in 1854, Australia remained a dominion of the Britannic Empire until January 1st, 1901, when it gained a small measure of independence through the Federation of the 6 extant colonies at the time.
Its present incarnation was brought about in the week leading up to May 1st, 1923, with the Syndic Revolution and the adoption of a new constitution.
