A list of Prime Ministers of Australia in the Casting Shadows universe.

Commonwealth of Australia

Born out of the federation of the Australian colonies in 1901, the Commonwealth of Australia was nominally governed by a group of Representatives and Senators who, as a single parliamentary body, drafted laws, passed actions and debated national policy amongst each other.

The head of state was de jure the Queen of Australia (as well as the other monarchical commonwealth realms), but her representative in the nation (the Governor-General) served as the de facto leader. The head of government on the other hand was the Prime Minister, elected by the leading government ministers within the nation's lower house to serve as Australia's chief representative in Parliament.

Federal Republic of Australia

Following the Australian republic referendum in 2030, Australia became a federal republic, the position of Governor-General becoming that of the President of Australia. Under the new national republican model, the position of Prime Minister remained relatively unchanged, the only stipulation in the revised Australian Constitution being that the Prime Minister could now only be elected by Representatives in the lower house, and never instated or removed by the President (as the Governor-General once could do).

State of Australia

After the Australian Nationalist Party's rise to power in mid-2040, the position of Prime Minister became far more powerful, especially following passage of the Dissolution Acts. Andrew Burges, the leading politician in Australia during this time period established and built his position up over his 36 years in power, becoming the de facto head of state and government during the final decade of his life. Constitutional amendments in 2056 and 2066 ultimately established and reinforced the position of Prime Minister as only being able to be held by Nationalist Party members, their representatives in the (after 2051) unicameral parliament granted the power to elect their chief representative.

After Burge's death in 2076, the position swiftly lost most of its power as his successors divided the powers of the position amongst themselves, the office's capacity in regards to the implementation of law being erroded by the time of the Australian Opening.

Provisional Australia

Following the resignation of James Paker, Andrew Burges' son Brendan Burges was elected as leader of the ANP by the hardliner faction in an effort to roll back the reforms of his predecessor. However, the "Australian Opening" campaign that had begun under Paker was ultimately expanded by the Burges Ministry, the Prime Minister hailing the opening of a "provisional government" that would ultimately lead to complete democratisation of Australia. The powers of the Prime Minister during this period were decreased significantly, especially under Burge's successor, the moderate Howard Ruwolt.
