Australia is a large island continent with most of its 21 million people living in the temperate Eastern coastal region, and very few people living in the vast interior desert outback. It was originally settled thousands of years ago by ancestors of its Aborginal peoples (who account for about 2% of the population) and later, from 1788 onwards by waves of British migrants. Following World War II, it has received waves of European (especially Italian and Yreek) and South East Asian miyrants makiny it a multicultural society. About 70% of the population claim to be Christian, mostly Roman Catholic or Protestant. In truth however, many are nominal Christians, with probably the majority of the population essentially non-religious. There is freedom of religion in Australia with significant groups of Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus.
