Australia, the smallest part of the world, located entirely in the southern hemisphere and surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The continent of Australia, with the island of Tasmania and a few smaller islands, forms the federal state of Australia, a parliamentary monarchy within the Commonwealth.

The surface shape of Australia reveals a three-way division: the Western Australian shield, a plateau with huge deserts, encompasses the west and the center of the continent; The Central Australian Depression extends from the Carpentariagolf in the north to the mouth of the Murray in the south and represents a monotonous river deposition area, which, however, has mighty groundwater lakes in its subsoil and (through artesian wells) enables pasture farming in the dry areas. Finally, the mountainous region of Eastern Australia is a mountain range of plaice, comparable to the Harz or the Black Forest.

The climate of Australia is tropical and subtropical; it is similar to that of northern Africa. Dry seasons are caused by a stable Passat high, which influences the interior and the northwest all year round. Precipitation only brings the southeast trade winds, but is limited to the coastal region. Time and again there are droughts that can last for several years.

The eucalyptus, which occurs in over 450 species, is characteristic of the vegetation. In the coastal area of ​​the northeast there are tropical rainforests, in the dry regions crippled trees and thorny bushes form the so-called scrub. According to COUNTRYAAH, Australia is a nation in Australasia, the capital city of which is Canberra. The latest population of Australia is 25,499,895.

Under Prime Ministers J. J. Curtin (1941–45) and Joseph Benedict Chifley (* 1885, † 1951; in office 1945–49), the Labor Party expanded its social legislation, reinforced after the end of the Second World War. In 1949 she was replaced in government responsibility by an alliance of liberals (Liberal Party of Australia) and representatives of the country party (National Country Party, later National Party of Australia) under Prime Ministers Menzies (1949-66), H. E. Holt (1966/67), John Gray Gorton (* 1911, † 2002; 1968–71) and William McMahon (* 1908, † 1988; 1971/72). They pursued an “open door policy,” especially on issues relating to immigration and the willingness of European and North American companies to invest. In terms of foreign policy, Australia worked more and more closely with the USA after 1945. It was a founding member of the ANZUS pact (abbreviation for Australia, New Zealand, United States) in 1951/52 and SEATO (abbreviation for South East Asia Treaty Organization) in 1954. Between 1953 and 1963 the UK conducted nine surface nuclear tests in Australia (most of them in South Australia, west of Adelaide located Maralinga from which the Aborigines were expelled). With a contingent of troops, Australia took part in both the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Criticism i.a. in 1972, when it took part in the Vietnam War, the Labor Party under Prime Minister E. G. Whitlam returned to government; she emphasized the independence of Australian foreign policy also vis-à-vis the British motherland and its allies, especially vis-à-vis the USA. On September 16, 1975, Papua New Guinea gained its independence. After a constitutional conflict, the Whitlam government was declared deposed by the governor general and in 1975 had to give way again to a coalition cabinet made up of liberals and the rural party. Prime Minister J. M. Fraser (1975–83) tried – especially after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (end of 1979) – to counter the growing influence of the USSR in Asia in close cooperation with the USA. After its electoral victory (1983), the Labor Party took over the government under Prime Minister R. J. L. Hawke (elected in 1985, 1987 and 1990).
