People living in the Northern Territory of Australia have been referred to by the rest of Australia as Territorians for as long as anyone there can remember. Top-Enders has had some usage, but is uncommon, though certainly Darwin and the northern area of the Territory is often referred to as t…he Top End. There are other nicknames given to inhabitants of most parts of Australia by inhabitants of other parts of Australia, but they tend to be localized, idiosyncratic and frequently not intended to flatter those referred to: some Queenslanders, for example, speak of southerners - and specifically those from New South Wales - as Cockroaches, while southerners in their turn have been heard to refer to Queenslanders as Cane Toads. Queenslanders don't seem to mind, and routinely catch and perform taxidermy on cane toads, putting them in interesting positions, mounting them on bases and selling them to tourists. I haven't heard of a similar trade in cockroaches, but am prepared to believe anything of southerners. South Australians are sometimes known as Crow-Eaters, while Western Australians can be called Sandgropers and, in their turn, refer to the rest of the world as the Eastern States And Overseas. (MORE)
I think you have to live your life and wait for something that sticks .it either has to suit your personality or just an abbreviation of your name . the best way (in my opinion) would be to get someone you know to think of something similar to yourself .
A very ambigious and weird question. Perhaps you'd do better to narrow it down. People in WA are similar to other parts of Australia. A typical WA person would live in the capital city, Perth, and the general consensus is people there are a bit more relaxed than in bigger cities like Melbourne or S…ydney. There is a lot to separate us from the cliche'd "Crocodile Dundee" stereotype, although there are some people like that ... and a lot of us have a tiny bit of that side within us, even if we don't want to admit it.

Ruler over the Ozites, resident builder of the Emerald Palace, ideator of the Wicked Witch of the West's demise, humbug problem-solver and escape artist are the roles of Oz in "The Wizard of Oz." Specifically, the Wizard resides in the Emerald City that he builds to rule over Ozites f…rom their capital, the Emerald City. He gets Dorothy Gale, her pet dog Toto and their three friends to kill one of his enemies, the Wicked Witch. He fakes giving to her three friends what they each already have. He ends up leaving unsolved Dorothy's problem of how to get back to Kansas. So throughout all his roles, the Wizard acts as a negative example of depending on others and as proof that things best are done yourself. (MORE)
