Nice try!

According to wiki:

Population   2006 census 19,855,288         2008 estimate 21,468,700   (-2, chairman and zglobal)

Size 7,741,220 km²

6 states, The states are New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and Western Australia.

And the question was What is the official language? And the answer is, there is none.
But the unofficial answer is of course Australian because few people would call that English :)

Northern Territory
Western Australia
South Australia
Queensland
New South Wales
Victoria

This makes it either 7 plus 1 or eight.

Are Scotsmen allowed in the Aussie thread?
