Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighboring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. It is a member of the British Commonwealth, as well as a Major non-NATO ally of the United States. It is also a member of the ANZUS military alliance between the United States and New Zealand.
World War III Edit
As a member of the Commonwealth of Nations and an ally of the United States, Australia presumably sent a handful of troops to aid in Britain in the war against the USSR. Some troops may have been deployed to Hong Kong to bolster the British soldiers stationed there.
