Baustralia (orthographic projection).svg

Baustralia (/bəˈstrliə, ɒ-/ (About this sound (listen))) is a landlocked micronation with minor creeks running through which account for 7% of its superficial area. It claims sovereignty over land claims in Canada and minor claims in the United States. It is the head of the Baustralian Empire, governing over three states claimed as a result of the Baustralian Conquest. It's first and current reigning monarch is John I, who also holds the titles of King and Emperor of Ostreum.

The name of Baustralia came about when John I and John Timpson was imagining a country of naval prowess and was similar to Australia in topography and climate. Due to these similarities, a 'B' was added. For the name of Australia, it is derived from the Latin australis, meaning "southern", and inspired by the hypothetical Terra Australis of pre-modern geography.

The idea for the formation of Baustralia came to mind when the King John I was doing a geography project on types of governments. Upon researching, John stumbled upon Sealand, and Molossia. After careful thought and planning came the formation.

A week after formation, Cold Creek, the province that contains the capital, had a coup d'état and was settled by a treaty to allow separation, this done in the best interests of the Baustralians. This coup caused the capital to move from Cold Creek to Cascadia.

Then, the king and John Timpson started work on the constitution, and upon royal approval, the Kingdom became a constitutional monarchy, based upon the likes of the United Kingdom. The kingdom is now 3 years, 3 months and 1 day old.
