Australia
Looks small doesnt it?

Australia

The capital of Australia is Canberra, (it means "meeting place in one of the many Aboriginal languages) situated in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The ACT is unique amongst the states and territories of Australia in that it has no sea shore. Most people dont like Canberra, describing it as sterile and boring, but I like it. If it wasnt so damn cold in Canberra I might consider living there. Sometimes it gets below Zero C (32F)!!!!!!! A man could die!
There are about 18 million people in Australia , mostly in the cities, and mostly in the south east corner.

The flag features the Union Flag in one corner (until we can remove it after the Republic) and the constellation of the Southern Cross, plus a seven pointed "commonwealth" star, each of the points representing a state or territory). One day soon we will have a flag that truly represents our nation and not just one small part of our history.
