That and, oddly, Madagascar, if the RISK board game is any

If you're ever playing RISK and things are going badly, here's a
strategy: announce exasperatedly "All right, I'm going to Australia."
Smoosh ALL your troops and reinforcements into one territory-blob as you
roll that blob inexorably to your new home.

It's a hail-Mary pass that often works, because during this manuever you
are effectively an irrational force of nature that no one knows what to
do with.

Once you're established there, do the normal Australia things.
