I'm not aware of one. How would you get to that situation from changing anything in any part of our history?

It's a setting that include the United States of Lizardia, so I'm not sure how England and Australia are automagically swapped is really any worse. How about a setting where Aboriginal Australians were more advanced than Europeans and conquered Europe? That should allow it.

Actually, I was referring to Caucasian settlers. They would have been the ones to quickly turn Australia into said empire.

In that case, something will have had to happen to the rest of the world, leaving the Australians as the most advanced nation on the planet.

Hmmmmm... That's in the back-story for Centrum, isn't it?
