City: ["m{_r5b@n] Melbourne ([%m{_r5b3\:n@j@n], Melburnian (no -o-) or
["m{_r5b@nait], Melbournite)
State: [vIk"tO:ri@] Victoria ([vIk"tO:ri@n], Victorian)
Country: [Qz] Oz or [@"str&_rilj@] or [-&_rj@] or [Q-] or [-l_j-] or [-i@]
Australia ([Qzi] Aussie or [-n] Australian)

(At least in this neck of the woods. I have heard people from Western Oz
using 'Aussie' as the name of the country, but that's highly *-worthy to me.)
