Thanks for checking this sub-State out.

This sub-State is prepared on the a-political concept that if you are interested in 'place' in Australia, the most important aspect that defines 'place', is the 'flow of water'. The Senate is interested in 'place'.

This sub-State defines its boundaries at the top of the ridge, where water flows one way rather than the other. This leads to a very interesting 'place'.

We are seeking a debate with people who live in this proposed new sub-State. We know we've got the sub-State pretty well correct; after all, it's just geography. But if you live in this sub-State you can tell us a lot of interesting things.

- Do these boundaries define a place that is unique; different to every other State in Australia? We think that that is probably quite likely.

- Is it a great place, worthy of recognition?

- Upon formation, what should be the name of this sub-State? Who would be the Chief Officer? Who would be the Senator who represents this sub-State?

- Many other interesting things!

We think that this is a great new concept of Statehood based on real concepts that define life in this particular sub-State. What do you think?

NOTE2: The red line is part of the original Aboriginal Australia Map © 1991. The black line is added by Bloggerme for discussion only. It shows the likely State boundary based on the flow of water only. As "the ridge" (See FOWTOR) naturally impacts on the development of the language, social or nation groups of the Indigenous people of Australia, the proposed border is often identical to the group boundary shown on the Aboriginal Australia Map. This is as was expected. Variations are social/historical & result in a particular language, social or nation group being represented in two adjoining States.








Other regional projections - CSIRO part of Murray Basin region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This sub-state, Snowy Mountains Sub-State (S3), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Murray Basin region". CSIRO's Murray Basin region coincides with BloggerMe's S2,S3,S4,S5.
