The Commonwealth of Australia in Oceania, comprises the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. The capital city is Canberra, and its largest urban area is Sydney.
Before the first European settlement, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke around 250 different languages. The current population of around 25 million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia has the world's 9th largest immigrant population, with immigrants accounting for 26% of the population.
Australia currently hosts a total of 183 people groups, twenty of which are considered unreached. The evangelical population is around 14.5% of the total.
