HistoryEdit

Before the FaultEdit

Republic of QueenslandEdit

Australian Civil WarEdit

FederationEdit

GovernmentEdit

Australia is a federal parliamentary democracy. (Will add more later)


Political DivisionsEdit

Australia has seven states- Capricornia (CPR), Carpentaria (CTA), Kimberley (KIM), New South Wales (NSW), Queensland (QLD), Riverina (RIV), and Victoria (VIC)- and two self-governing territories- the Central Territory (CT) and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Geography and EnvironmentEdit

Australia is home to a wide variety of landscapes and climates. The Northern Peninsula is home to temperate forests. The northern coast is taiga, while the southeastern and southwestern coasts are tundra. The outback has mostly become tundra, with some taiga towards the coasts. Further south lies the expanded Antarctic icesheet.

Because much of Antarctica is 3 kilometers high (1.5 kilometers higher than the highest point in Australia), strong katabatic winds blow in at hurricane force from the main Antarctic continent, cooling the Australian interior. These winds collide with the storm-force easterlies of the southern ocean.

Hurricane force winds pervade the continent. It is not uncommon for windstorms to pick up debris, such as concrete or broken glass. The atmosphere over Australia is highly ionized and the area experiences constant lightning strikes. There is an ever-present cloud cover over the area with any given place only seeing direct sunlight once a week on average. Hailstorms are a weekly occurrence and hailstones the size of golf balls or larger are not uncommon.


FloraEdit

Australia's harsh environment has delayed the spread of Inforian lifeforms in the area. As a result, Australia is one of the last refuges in the world for non-Inforian flora. Australia is famed for its non-Inforian mushroooms, which it uses to make beer and other alcoholic beverages.

FaunaEdit

Inforian sealife infests the coasts, posing a serious danger to shipping and coastal communities.

Some Inforian species have come to inhabit the continent. Among these are the Australian Giant Mole and Carpentarian Wolf.

MilitaryEdit

DoctrineEdit

Australian military doctrine revolves around the Fabian strategy, avoiding stand-up fights and instead gradually bleeding enemy forces. 

Australian forces rely on using large numbers of cheap, lightly armored, and highly mobile vehicles to overwhelm the enemy, 

Deception is a major component of the Australian approach to warfare, both on the strategic and tactical levels.

OrganizationEdit

Australian Home GuardEdit

Australian Federal ArmyEdit

Australian Air ForceEdit

Australian NavyEdit

At the height of the civil war, numerous Australian ships were either destroyed or sold to sustain the war effort. Following the fall of the old regime, many ships were left to rust in the harbor for years with little to no maintenance.

Recently, the Australian government has started a campaign to rebuild its navy, bringing the remaining seaworthy warships back into service while also buying Samoran and retired Britannian vessels.

Current EquipmentEdit

Body armorEdit

ALCS (Assisted Load Carrier System)

The Assisted Load Carrier System is a powered exoskeleton, with in a tethered variant for logistics personnel and an untethered variant for combat engineers. The ALCS augments the operator's lower and upper body strength, allowing them to lift 80 kilograms with minimal effort. The suit is equiped with waldos which can be used in place of the operator's hands.

Due to its relatively primitive nature, the ALCS  suffers from multiple design issues. The Combat Engineer variant is limited primarily by its battery life, with the rechargeable battery only being able to power the suit for up to 12 hours of extensive use. In addition, the suit's hydraulic joints have a tendency to seize up when heavily damaged, often resulting in severe injuries.
