This article is an outline, a type of article that presents a list of articles or sub-topics related to its subject in a hierarchical form. For the standardized set of outlines on Wikipedia, see Portal:Contents/Outlines. Outlines are within the scope of the Outlines WikiProject, a collaborative effort to improve outlines on Wikipedia.

There are no glaciers in Australia, although glaciation has affected part of the Australian Alps in ancient times. As far as I'm aware there are no fjords in Australia, even in Tasmania.--Grahame (talk) 14:05, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I filled in the blanks with "none". The Transhumanist 06:57, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Tips for developing country outlines[edit]

Instructions for developing country outlines is located at Wikipedia:Outlines (while that section is complete, the page is a draft, and will be moved to the Wikipedia namespace when completed). The Transhumanist 21:45, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

A note concerning redlinks...[edit]

Many of the entries (and their links) are standard across all of the country outlines, to aid readers, especially young readers, in comparing countries to each other.

So if this country doesn't have any of a particular entry, like navies, please don't delete the entry. Instead, complete it with "none" (and a brief explanation as to why, for example, "- x is a landlocked country with no ports"). If the explanation exists in an article on Wikipedia, then click on the redlink and create a redirect to that location. See Wikipedia:Redirect, WP:Section linking, and Help:Section#Section_linking.

Standard redlinks (article names) were also chosen based on how country coverage tipically expands. This makes the standard names for these subtopics widely available and easily accessible. So please do not remove those redlinks, for they will turn blue eventually. In the meantime, they can be redirected to the section of whatever article has the relevant information, if any. See Wikipedia:Redirect, WP:Section linking, and Help:Section#Section_linking.

Thank you.

Guidelines for outlines[edit]

Guidelines for the development of outlines are being drafted at Wikipedia:Outlines.

Your input and feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

Please check and fix the government section[edit]

The government section needs to be checked for accuracy. The initial data placed in the government branches sections was generated by template, and the data didn't fit all countries.

So those sections need to be looked over, and fixed if needed.

Please help.

Thank you.

The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.

Needed maintenance on country outlines[edit]

Please check this outline for the following problems, and fix if present:

  • If the Local government section is empty (or only has a red "main" link), please remove the section. (If it has a blue "main" link, do not remove).
  • Underdeveloped Education section - add more links.
  • Redlinks that are unlikely to ever turn blue - remove or delink as appropriate.
  • Out-of-date incumbant names - remove. No need to add the new incumbants, as the links to the articles on the position titles should suffice.

Thank you. The Transhumanist 02:13, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
