Regarding tropes, there are few of them here. Why? The islands have achieved independence only in the 70's and 80's. With the exception of the biggest three,[[note]]Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea[[/note]] every single country here has less than a million people, and most have less than 200,000.

Also known as the continent of Australia, Oceania is Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands. It's a political continent rather than a geographic one, because it's not a huge landmass but a collection of islands and atolls. To confuse the terminology further, Oceania is often considered part the [[UsefulNotes/{{Asia}} Asian]] ''region'' (but not the continent).
