For most of its history, the land known as "Australia" has been inhabited by various Aboriginal peoples, who were isolated from the rest of the world. Upon the European discovery of this vast landmass in 1606, many countries tried to take portions of it. Eventually, the British took the entire island of Australia, turning it into one of their most prosperous - and largest - colonies. Due to the vast amount of available land, the British Empire sent convicts to the territory, as a way of keeping the British Isles crime-free. Eventually, in 1901, Australia got its first Prime Minister, and eventually independence from Great Britain. As a newly-formed nation, Australia joined the First and Second World Wars, helping to put its place on the world map. Today, Australia is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, as well as having strong economic and political links with other countries.

Gough Whitlam[]

Gough Whitlam, Prime Minister of Australia from 1972 to 1975, was one of the most skillful and controversial leaders of the Australian Labor party. As Prime Minister, he introduced a record number of policies and social reforms, but his government was controversially dismissed by Governor-General John Kerr under dubious and disheartening circumstances.

Dawn of Man[]

"Good day to you, Gough Whitlam, rightful Prime Minister of Australia! Coming into power after over twenty years of conservative government, you passed a record number of policies and social reforms, bringing Australia out of the 1950s and into the modern age! Your government radically changed the Australian economic, legal, and cultural landscape, introducing legal aid, universal healthcare, greater access to both secondary and higher education, increased cultural funding, and much much more. In only three years in office, you achieved far more than others managed in twenty. Truly, you will live on as one of Australia's most influential figures.

Oh Prime Minister, following your controversial and dubious dismissal from office, many of your reforms have been quashed or altered by less visionary ministries. But the people know it's time for your governance once more! Will you bring a new age of progress and reform to your country? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "It's a pleasure to meet you. My name's Gough Whitlam, and this is Australia! I'm sure there'll be no issues between us."

Defeat: "You've won, but this isn't over. My people will maintain their rage!"
