However in late 1990 the Alliance started getting hit by random but constant raids, small short and contained conflicts became a weekly occurrence. This period was known as 'The First Bush Wars' lasting till the start of 1992. Australia did not take the brunt of these skirmishes, it was mostly the Israeli states and minor Nations such as Fiji.

In the end The Empire was disbanded and its members spread once again to many different alliances. Phillips and his most loyal followers however stayed together and moved to an old friend of The Empire.
The Evenstar Empire and Commonwealth.
After the Dissolving of The Empire Many of its members moved to the Alliance The Evenstar Empire where they received a warm welcome into its ranks. Australia even made it onto the alliances leadership board. The members of the Empire formed a commonwealth committee and although still proud members of the British Empire devote their service to The Evenstar with many Commonwealth nations taking part in the recent wars such as the The Charming War.
To date Australia continues to grow with their economy, military and international relations an example is the assistance program Australia runs with South Africa and Rhodesia. Its Goals are to continue to grow and hold onto their dream of a united British Empire along with their friends in the Evenstar Empire. Courage, Initiative and Teamwork is the motto of the Australian people.
The Commonwealth of Australia's Government is a conservative democracy. It is broken down into 3 levels being. The High Council, Upper house and Lower house.
The High council is designed to help the Senior leadership of Australia and Great Britain decide what is best in the interest of the Empire. A Commonwealth Council member from any Commonwealth Nations will advise how Australia can better fulfill her obligations as a member nation.
The Upper House is designed to allow just Australia's senior leadership to run the nation. It is made up of the two major party's. One being the party in in the last national election and the other the runner up or 'opposition Party.' Basically all governing decisions are made here for the good of the nation. The Governor is the Queens/Kings representative and holds all power over the Upper house, under him is the Prime Minister the elected leader of the Nation.
The Lower House operates as the States elected governing forces, though the upper house has total power over the lower house all local and state projects are left for the lower house to run. Regional representatives meet here and decide on what the local government needs to effectively run the town/area.
