After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch (Dutch Republic) explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated (Federation of Australia), forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic (liberal democracy) political system that functions as a federal (Federalism) parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories (States and territories of Australia).
