Speaking as one, I can assure you Australians do not have a colonial mentality - and what does that have to do with the centre of Australia being empty? And the reason the heart of Australia is (mostly) empty is a very obvious one. Too hot and limited water supplies. The same reason that desert areas anywhere in the world are mostly empty.

"How about this policy; all europeans should be returned to europe "

Of course you're including European Russia here aren't you? All lands west and south of the Urals?

"...and resources and lands occupied by europeans in North America, South America and extreme South Eastern Asia (australia, tazmania and new zealand) should be returned to their native peoples."

Yes - but how about this extension to your wonderful policy - the Europeans take all their inventions and technologies back with them and leave the rest of the world in the state it was in before European contact.
