"...The true Orientian battler thrusts doggedly onwards: starting again, failing again, implacably thrusting towards success.
For success, even if it is only the success of knowing that one has tried to the utmost and never surrendered, is the target of every battler..."

AOR (Australia-Orientia Republic)

AOR, officially known as the Republic Union of Orientia and Australia or Australentia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, Polynesians (Oceania), Orientia Continent and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's fifth-largest country by total area. For at least 40,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century, Australia and Orientia island was inhabited by indigenous Aboriginal and Austronesian, who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups. After the discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by British Empire in 1770 and settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the new continent (Orientia) was explored and an additional six self-governing Crown Colonies were established.

On 2 November 1902, Australasia gains special Authority, and in 3rd February 1930, Australia breaks from Commonwealth and joined Orientia as a union state. The country consists of 35 states / republics, and 4 overseas territories. The 250 million people who live here are highly educated and have the highest standard of living in Oceania and Southeast Asia. However, the population is focused on the continental part of Orientia.

AZR is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy. In 2012, Australentia/Catlanonia had the world's fifth-highest per capita income, Australentia's military expenditure is the world's 4th-largest. With the second-highest human development index globally, AOR ranks highly in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. AOR is a member of the United Nations, G7, PTO, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.

The official name of this country is Orientia, which are the main landmass of the country. But, often the name Australentia, (a combination of words Australia and Orientia) is used to refer to the full name of the country.

Not infrequently the name Catlanonia is used as the official name of the country, especially if you are an indigenous people of the country. The word Catlanonia is taken from the name given by the indigenous tribe of the Orientia Continent (Catlan 'O Nia) which means Land Surrounded by Sea.

Orientia and Australia itself are taken from Latin language, namely Orientis (West) and Australis (South). Considering the Australian continent was discovered first, while the Orientia continent located in the west of Australia was discovered 1 year later. Both names were given by a British sea explorer, Captain James Cook.

Main Article History of Orientia

Early History

Aboriginal Art Rock at Falloney Region, Eastern Australia

Human habitation of Australia continent is known to have begun at least 65.000 years ago, with the migration of people from land bridge that exist in the Ice Age and short sea crossing from what's now Southeast Asia.

Meanwhile in Orientian continent, the story is much different. The ancient Polynesian arrives at Northern Tip of Orientia, at least 40.000 years ago. The Oldest human remains found at Lake Barney remains, which have been dated in around 39.000 years ago.

Before the arrival of the Majapahiti Ships at Orientia, The indigenous people in Orientia has named themself Catlan' O Nia, and this is where the Catlanonia word founded.

With northwest peninsula being so close to Papua and Indonesia, Austronesian colonizers would be within of two continents at once. But, eventually, they skipping Australia and move directly to Orientian continent. With this, Orientia is now a massive target for Proto-Indonesian and Proto-Pacific Islander who start colonizing the continent starting in at least 1135 BCE.

For the trade, they keep in communication with their Motherland and start building a new silk road throughout Southeast Asia. At the time that Majapahit came to power, they have a plan to maintaining trade relationship with Melanesians, Austronesians, and Polynesians who have settled the Orientian continent. With this, Orientian continent will be highly influenced by Southeast Asian culture.

Prasasti Paliama or Paliama's Inscription written in old Sanskrit language.

The oldest inscription in Orientian continent is The Prasasti Paliama, founded in the ruins of Kempubumi Empire's capital, Ole' Ma Roa. By the thirteenth century, many kingdoms based on Hinduism and Buddhism spread across Orientian continent, the largest being the Kempubumi Empire which was highly influenced by Majapahit.

Colonization Era

Potrait of Abel Tasman, the first European Explorer who founded the Orientian continent, which is named New Zeeland earlier

The first European contact to the Orientian continent is recorded between the 16th century and was contributed to the Dutch. Abel Janszoon Tasman, is the first European explorer who landed and having a contact with the indigenous Orientians.

In the first time, this continent was named as New Zeeland, but Tasman's relationship with the natives is going end badly. They're attacked and soon, Abel Tasman leaves the Orientian continent through Torres Strait and go straight into New Holland (West Australia).

Meanwhile, a few decades later, James Cook, an English Explorer founded the continent again. Therefore, he has heard about the Savage native peoples story in Orientia but after he landed on Fell Peninsula, (Which is a former Kempubumi Empire's Dominion) He found that natives in the West Coast of Orientia are quite nice.

This story attracted the British colonizers that have lost the Thirteen Colony in 1783, And then they send the First Fleet under the command of Captain Arthur Philips. James Cook also a first European who can fully mapping the continent and founded that Northern Natives are rudes and savage, meanwhile the Eastern and Western Natives are quite nice, and their economy depends on agriculture, while North, depending on hunting.

The European then renamed the land Terra Orientis which was a Latin language meaning The Great Eastern Land. A few groups of British Colonizers then simplify the words into Orientia (Just like the naming of Australia).

The British had also put their colonial government in Sydney, but, after the discovery of Orientia, they moved the center of their government to Felltonia. To deal with the natives, Britain had its own way of making Kingdoms and small states fight with each other.

However, the second Governor-General of Orientia, Peter Blaney decided to negotiate with the natives and preserve a good life, which meant they had to want to be occupied by the British. By 1800, Dominion of Orientia was established bringing a tons of British peoples to have a new home in Orientia. As a result, Natives population has decreased drastically.

Not only Orientia, The British also established the Dominion of East Australia which is the West is controlled by Netherlands and Northwestern Territory is controlled by France.

The British put their flag in the Port Cook (Now we know as Felltonia)

Germany began to enter Orientia in the 19th century and established its colonies in the North of Orientia. The North is now influenced by German (and have a large role in Orientia's history) and the South is influenced by British culture. The Germans fought all out against the Indigenous Tribes. However, after the Act of Aboriginal Tribes, the island's indigenous tribes were finally preserved.

Finally, the War between Britains and the Germans began. But stopped in 1900, when the Orientians also rebelled against the British government. They signed a peace agreement. The authority of British Dominion is no longer valid, 2 Trade Commonwealth were created.

Early Acts, World Wars, and Union Era

On 2 November 1901, federation of the colonies was achieved after a decade of planning, consultation and voting.This established the Royal Commonwealth of Orientia as a Self-Governing Associated States of the British Empire.

The Federal Capital Territory (later renamed the Capital Territory) was formed in 1911 as the location for the future federal capital of Felltonia. Alexandrea was the temporary seat of government from 1900 to 1927 while Felltonia was being constructed.The Northern Island was transferred from the control of the North Province government to the federal parliament in 1911.

In 1914, Orientia joined Britain in fighting World War I, with support from both the outgoing Commonwealth Liberal Party and the incoming Orientian Labor Party. Orientian took part in many of the major battles fought on the Western Front. Of about 420,000 who served, about 60,000 were killed and another 150,000 were wounded. Many Orientianns regard the defeat of the Orientian and Australian Army Corps (OAAC's) at Gallipoli as the birth of the nation—its first major military action.

In 1932, The Australian Union Acts makes Australia broke off from British Commonwealth and joining the Orientia as a Union. This was proposed by Sid Alfred and Wallace Freddy who eventually also made other Constituent Countries associated with the Union.

At the second war, Orientia and its fleet joined forces to attack Japan's position in Asia Pacific with the United States who also lured into war because of Pearl Harbor. Feeling strong because it has been supported by the United States, Orientia went ahead and blocked the Japanese war logistics path to its fleet in the Coral Sea Battle. This operation was successful in making Japan's strength weak in the Pacific as the two US carrier (USS Enterprise, USS Lexington) survives and could be easily defeated Imperial Japanese Navy in the Battle of Midway.

However, the failure of operation Vengeance (to kill Admiral Yamamoto) and the success assassination of Hitler (Operation Valkyrie) changed the course of war. A few months later, Japanese signed a peace treaty which is they will release the Philippines to the US and other Southeast Asian States to their former colonist.

After the defeat of Nazi Germany to The Socialist Germans, and the bombing of Hamburg by Columbian Starbomb, World War II is over.

The shock of the United Kingdom's defeat in Asia in 1942 and the threat of Japanese invasion caused the Union to turn to the United States as a new ally and protector. Since 1951, Orientian Union has been a formal military ally of the US, under the Franklinton-Felltonia treaty.

After World War II, Orientia encouraged immigration from mainland Europe. Since the 1950s and following the abolition of the White Orientians policy, immigration from Asia (especially Japan and China) and elsewhere was also promoted. As a result, Orientia's demography, culture, and self-image were transformed.

Cold War and Industrialization Era

In the even of Cold War, The Union plays an important role, especially in Asia. In 1960, the Nusantara Civil War (Federalist Nusantara, Malaysia, with the Socialists), quite struck the Orientian image in the world. Nevertheless, industrialization in various sectors in Orientia-Australia in 1960 raised its position as a new powerhouse in the Asia-Pacific.

Rapid Industrialization in Orientia-Australia makes them one of emerging powerhouse in 1960's era

In 1969, The Union finally have it's first Starbomb codenamed Mad Kangaroo and was tested in Collina Island in Polynesian Territories. The military expanding is also occured during the Cold War, overtake the People's Republic of China and India. As a result, the Orientia military at that time was at number 3 in the first place held by the United States and then the Soviet Union.

Orientia also the first country in Asia Pacific for launching a Satellite named TanagerFly during the "Space Race" between the US and the Soviet. Orientia then established the APTO or Asia-Pacific Treaty Organization, which is consisting the remaining democratic nation in Asia and Pacific.

The 1980 Second Nusantaran war and the 1989 Vietnam War ultimately won by the ATO with the Nusantara Democratic regime restored and also the stagnation between South and North Vietnam. In 1991, after the dissolution of Soviet Union and the creation of Eurasia, Orientia then makes its own Commonwealth Sphere in Pacific Ocean and rejoin the British Commonwealth Sphere Organization as another branch.

Current Days, The 21st Century, and Digitalization era




Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans, AZR is separated from Asia by the Arafura and Timor seas, with the Coral Sea lying off the Queensland coast, and the Tasman Sea lying between ANZR and New Zealand. The world's smallest continent and sixth largest country by total area, ANZR — owing to its size and isolation — is often dubbed the "island continent", and is sometimes considered the world's largest island.

ANZR mainland has 34,218 kilometres (21,262 mi) of coastline (excluding all offshore islands), and claims an extensive Exclusive Economic Zone of 8,148,250 square kilometres (3,146,060 sq mi). This exclusive economic zone does not include the ANZR Antarctic Territory. Apart from Macquarie Island, ANZR mainland lies between latitudes 9° and 44°S, and longitudes 112° and 154°E.

Heron Island, a coral cay in the southern Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest coral reef, lies a short distance off the north-east coast and extends for over 2,000 kilometres (1,240 mi). Mount Augustus, claimed to be the world's largest monolith, is located in Western ANZR mainland (Catlanonia). At 2,228 metres (7,310 ft), Mount Kosciuszko is the highest mountain on the Australian mainland. Even taller are Mawson Peak (at 2,745 metres or 9,006 feet), on the remote Catlanonian external territory of Heard Island, and, in the ANZR Antarctic Territory, Mount McClintock and Mount Menzies, at 3,492 metres (11,457 ft) and 3,355 metres (11,007 ft) respectively.

Oceanian islands are of four basic types: continental islands, high islands, coral reefs and uplifted coral platforms. High islands are of volcanic origin, and many contain active volcanoes. Among these are Bougainville (USSC), Hawaii (USSC), and Solomon Islands.

ANZR Oceania Region is one of eight terrestrial ecozones, which constitute the major ecological regions of the planet. Related to these concepts are Near Oceania, that part of western Island Melanesia which has been inhabited for tens of millennia, and Remote Oceania which is more recently settled. Although the majority of the Oceanian islands lie in the South Pacific, a few of them are not restricted to the Pacific Ocean – Kangaroo Island and Ashmore and Cartier Islands, for instance, are situated in the Southern Ocean and Indian Ocean, respectively, and Tasmania's west coast faces the Southern Ocean.[68] The coral reefs of the South Pacific are low-lying structures that have built up on basaltic lava flows under the ocean's surface.

One of the most dramatic is the Great Barrier Reef off northeastern ANZR with chains of reef patches. A second island type formed of coral is the uplifted coral platform, which is usually slightly larger than the low coral islands. Examples include Banaba (formerly Ocean Island) and Makatea in the Tuamotu group of French Polynesia.

The Pacific Islands are ruled by a tropical rainforest and tropical savanna climate. In the tropical and subtropical Pacific, the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects weather conditions.

In the tropical western Pacific, the monsoon and the related wet season during the summer months contrast with dry winds in the winter which blow over the ocean from the Asian landmass. November is the only month in which all the tropical cyclone basins are active.

To the southwest of the region, in the ANZR Catlanonia landmass, the climate is mostly desert or semi-arid, with the southern coastal corners having a temperate climate, such as oceanic and humid subtropical climate in the east coast and Mediterranean climate in the west.

The northern parts of the country have a tropical climate. Snow falls frequently on the highlands near the east coast, in the states of Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and in the Illawara.

Most regions of New Zealand belong to the temperate zone with a maritime climate (Köppen climate classification: Cfb) characterised by four distinct seasons. Conditions vary from extremely wet on the West Coast of the South Island to almost semi-arid in Central Otago and subtropical in Northland. Snow falls in New Zealand's South Island and at higher altitudes in the North Island. It is extremely rare at sea level in the North Island.

The highest recorded temperature in ANZR occurred in Oodnadatta, South Catlanonia (2 January 1960), where the temperature reached 50.7 °C (123.3 °F).[128] The lowest temperature ever recorded in Oceania was −25.6 °C (−14.1 °F), at Ranfurly in New Zealand in 1903, with a more recent temperature of −21.6 °C (−6.9 °F) recorded in 1995 in nearby Ophir.

Pohnpei of the Senyavin Islands in Micronesia is the wettest settlement in ANZR, and one of the wettest places on earth, with annual recorded rainfall exceeding 7,600 millimetres (300 in) each year in certain mountainous locations. The Big Bog on the island of Maui is the wettest place, receiving an average 404.4 inches (10,271 mm) each year.

Prominent features of the Australian flora are adaptations to aridity and fire which include scleromorphy and serotiny.

These adaptations are common in species from the large and well-known families Proteaceae (Banksia), Myrtaceae (Eucalyptus – gum trees), and Fabaceae (Acacia – wattle). The flora of Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia is tropical dry forest, with tropical vegetation that includes palm trees, premna protrusa, psydrax odorata, gyrocarpus americanus and derris trifoliata.

New Zealand's landscape ranges from the fjord-like sounds of the southwest to the tropical beaches of the far north. South Island is dominated by the Southern Alps. There are 18 peaks of more than 3000 metres (9800 ft) in the South Island.

All summits over 2,900 m are within the Southern Alps, a chain that forms the backbone of the South Island; the highest peak of which is Aoraki/Mount Cook, at 3,754 metres (12,316 ft). Earthquakes are common, though usually not severe, averaging 3,000 per year. There is a wide variety of native trees, adapted to all the various micro-climates in New Zealand.


The Female Kangaroo in South Australia.

The aptly-named Pacific kingfisher is found in the Pacific Islands, as is the Red-vented bulbul, Polynesian starling, Brown goshawk, Pacific Swallow and the Cardinal myzomela, among others.

Birds breeding on Pitcairn include the fairy tern, common noddy and red-tailed tropicbird. The Pitcairn reed warbler, endemic to Pitcairn Island, was added to the endangered species list in 2008.

A unique feature of Australia's fauna is the relative scarcity of native placental mammals, and dominance of the marsupials – a group of mammals that raise their young in a pouch, including the macropods, possums and dasyuromorphs. The passerines of Australia, also known as songbirds or perching birds, include wrens, the magpie group, thornbills, corvids, pardalotes, lyrebirds.

Predominant bird species in the country include the Australian magpie, Australian raven, the pied currawong, crested pigeons and the laughing kookaburra. The koala, emu, platypus and kangaroo are national animals of Australia, and the Tasmanian devil is also one of the well-known animals in the country. The goanna is a predatory lizard native to the Australian mainland.

The birds of New Zealand evolved into an avifauna that included a large number of endemic species. As an island archipelago New Zealand accumulated bird diversity and when Captain James Cook arrived in the 1770s he noted that the bird song was deafening.

The mix includes species with unusual biology such as the kakapo which is the world's only flightless, nocturnal, lek breeding parrot, but also many species that are similar to neighboring land areas. Some of the more well known and distinctive bird species in New Zealand are the kiwi, kea, takahe, kakapo, mohua, tui and the bellbird. The tuatara is a notable reptile endemic to New Zealand.

Catlanonia is a wealthy country with a market economy, a relatively high GDP per capita, and a relatively low rate of poverty. In terms of average wealth, Catland ranked second in the world after Switzerland in 2013, and the nation's poverty rate increased from 10.2 per cent to 11.8 per cent, from 2000/01 to 2013. It was identified by the Credit Suisse Research Institute as the nation with the highest median wealth in the world and the second-highest average wealth per adult in 2013.

The Catlanonia Carrel is the currency for the nation, including Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and Norfolk Island, as well as the independent Pacific Island states of Kiribati, Nauru, and Tuvalu. With the 2006 merger of the Australian Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange, the Catland Securities Exchange became the ninth largest in the world.

Ranked third in the Index of Economic Freedom (2010), Catland is the world's twelfth largest economy and has the fifth highest per capita GDP (nominal) at $66,984. The country was ranked second in the United Nations 2011 Human Development Index and first in Legatum's 2008 Prosperity Index. All of Catland's major cities fare well in global comparative liveability surveys; Melbourne reached first place on The Economist's 2011 and 2012 world's most liveable cities lists, followed by Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide in sixth, eighth, and ninth place respectively. Total government debt in Australia is about $190 billion – 20% of GDP in 2010.

Over the past decade, inflation has typically been 2–3% and the base interest rate 5–6%. The service sector of the economy, including tourism, education, and financial services, accounts for about 70% of GDP. Rich in natural resources, Catland is a major exporter of agricultural products, particularly wheat and wool, minerals such as iron-ore, uranium and gold, and energy in the forms of liquified natural gas and coal. Although agriculture and natural resources account for only 3% and 5% of GDP respectively, they contribute substantially to export performance. Catland's largest export markets are Japan, China, the US, South Korea, and New Zealand. Australia is the world's fourth largest exporter of wine, and the wine industry contributes $5.5 billion per year to the nation's economy.


Culture in Catland is same as the European Culture. But a outer land culture like Chinese culture is often found in the northern territory. The newcomers from China and Japan are often found in northern territory too. So the culture in the South Catland and the North Catland is little bit different. In the Elephant island and Pacific States, The culture is basically the indigenous people in the island.


After the establishment from UK, Catland make it's infrastructure better than the other countries in Southeast Asia. The Collen Centre Building in New Canberra is became a tallest building in Southeast Asia. Catland aviation industry also go stronger. In Catland, Concorde is commonly found.
