Australia is a country because it has one national government which administers the whole of Australia including the island state of Tasmania. All the states are federated into the one nation, although each still holds some of its own powers. All of the other continents except Antarctica, are divided into multiple countries.

Colonies developed first at Sydney, followed by Newcastle (still part of New South Wales), then further in the south at Van Diemen's Land (Hobart, in Tasmania), north in Brisbane (Moreton Bay), in the west at Perth, and finally south at Melbourne and Adelaide. On 1 January 1901, they federated as one nation.
