The Republic of Estibordo (Portuguese: República do Estibordo) is a large Australian confederation. Comprising the majority of the Australian mainland, Estibordo also occupies a number of outlying islands including the medium-sized southern island of São Tomás. Estibordo shares its only land border with Cygnia in the west.
As a confederation, each state maintains relative sovereignty and control over domestic affairs. This, and the Portuguese colonization of the late 1600s, has led to great disparity between the wealthier eastern and southern coasts and the inland, desert regions.
The history of Estibordo dates back approximately 40,000 years ago with the island's settlement by the aboriginal populations that originally came from Southeast Asia to Oceania. The Island was first discovered by Europeans (specifically Manoel de Paredes of Portugal) in 1678. Soon thereafter, a trading post was established at Venâncio in 1683. The colony expanded substantially until it occupied the majority of the Australian continent - eventually abutting the early Cygnian colonies in the west.
The first inhabitants of what is today Estibordo entered the Australian continent as early as 70,000 years ago from Southeast Asia. Leading theorists posit that the Australian continent was more closely connected with mainland Asia. The earliest human remains in the continent were found in [ATL NSW] and date back to 40,000 to 68,000 years ago.

The economy of Estibordo is a mixed-market with many essential services (from healthcare to media to industry) provided by local state governments. In many ways, Estibordo follows the tenets of a socialist economy, leading to a relatively low inequality between individuals in the same state.
