The Commonwealth of Australis was a short-lived predecessor state to the Unified Royal States of Australis.
The Commonwealth of Australis was predominantly enclaved within Western Australia.
The name Australis is derived from the latin name Terra Australis, meaning Southern Land. It was the historical name for the hypothetical southern continent now known as Australia.
Australis was established in 2020 by five Perth teenagers – Daniel Hamilton, Roberto Flamenco, Alison Mitchell, Anica Weck and Caitlyn Azar. The five claimed a 2032m2 Official Territory in the south west town of Karridale as Australis' first capital, and declared a Hereditary Pentarchy. Xavier Martin was appointed as the first prime minister (2020).
On the 18th of April 2020, two of the five Pentarchy members left. Roberto Flamenco was voted out by a 4/5 Pentarchy vote, for inactivity and failure to serve the nation as per the requirements for being in the Pentarchy. Anica Weck also left due to being unable to handle the pressure of the Pentarchy. These people were replaced by Sinead Hamilton and Carlo Olivier, who were decided from 4 applications to be the winners.
On the 6th of May 2020, the First Australissian Parliament was dissolved by the Pentarchy, in order to bring a political reform.
Military and Defence
Australis has three branches of defence:
The AFPD is responsible for maintaining law and order in the community. The Department of Internal Affairs has jurisdiction over the operations of the AFPD. It currently has 5 officers.
The Australissian Navy consists of one 'Barker' class Genesis Cuddy Cabin with a 250hp engine. It is responsible for patrolling waters bordering Australis.
The Australissian Army is responsible for defending Australissian borders and assisting nearby nations with humanitarian aid or defence.
The Australis Times is the national news agency of Australis. It was founded on the 20th April 2020, with the goal of informing citizens and foreigners of political, cultural and other news within the nation. It has reported on many major issues and events within the Australissian community.
As of 20 April 2020, the nation has 28 citizens. Australissian citizenship can be applied for through the official website. The government asks that citizens residences become territory of Australis.
