Australia's original inhabitants were human, but during the 15th century, an unnamed mage exiled from Europe settled on the continent and began conducting experiments to hybridize humans and animals into a new species.
Australia was invaded and colonized by the settlers of the British Empire in the late 18th century. British colonial government overtook the previous anthro-feralis factions and became law of the land, displacing members of the species from power and beginning an era of human dominance. Many of its inhabitants were sold into slavery and dispersed across the globe.
In 1949, Australia along with its neighboring landmass New Zealand were the only two countries to remain under British control despite the London Declaration releasing control of all other countries within the British Commonwealth to their local governments.
In 2013, the United States banned immigration from Australia for non-humanoids.
