Australia, a very very large island in the Pacific Ocean, is owned by the Queen of England and serves as the world's largest prison. Australia is a harsh and brutal land, and takes a toll on everyone who lives there. After only a short time on the island, Australians begin to speak in a strangely accented form of English, start using bizarre catchphrases, and begin seeing strange visions of non-existent creatures such as "Koala Bears" and "Kangaroos."
Exile to Australia is usually a life sentence. Those few who are paroled from Australia are sent to Austria to recover before returning to England. Prisoners who are deemed too incorrigible even for Australia are sent to England's harshest prison, New Zealand, where they are forced to live like sheep.
