Arrrrgh!!!! should it come to this?
Some of the "slaves" escaped into the wild wasteland that still remains in the island continent of Australia.
In 1901, some 'farseeing' individuals organised the "Federation" of the disparate, and individual "Colonies".
New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia (which, by the way was founded and survived without convict labour) then Western Australia. Yep, am not sure when the penal colony of Tasmania acquired a parliament.
Mainly with the thought that each individual and separate Colony might have problems defending itself from the 'rising' military might of some European Nation states. So, in 1901, the Federated Commonwealth of Australia began, and has grown into this entity called "Canberra". Federal politicians.
There was also a time, way back when the Brits had some say ... there were bushrangers. - The Aussie version of 'Robin hoods'. Take from the rich, and give to the poor.
This is not a serious prediction .... but the time may come .... again .... heh.
