Facts

Economy
Advanced market economy balanced between services, mining and agricultural exports, industry and tourism. Which results in a strong middle class, although poverty has increased.
The fragile ecology is under constant threat - the severe drought has decimated the agriculture, and bush fires cost many lives and millions of dollars damage.
