PrimeMinisterEdward received an anonymous e-mail stating conclusive evidence that the Chief of the Defence Force was corrupt and that PrimeMinisterEdward had to act immediately.
On the 24th of November Grand Army troops entered the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) from the north-east. The troops were ambushed when they arrived in the outer suburbs. Enemy Defence Force troops fired upon the Grand Army from the roof tops of many suburbian buildings. While the troops took cover PrimeMinisterEdward ordered artillery to fire on the Defence Force troops. As the Grand Army troops progressed they found many abandoned tanks which they used to defeat further resistance.
As the Grand Army passed through Civic Circle and neared Parliament House, PrimeMinisterEdward realised that the Grand Army did not have enough resources to start a full assault. The Grand Army troops spent the night in abandoned buildings along Northbourne Avenue. PrimeMinisterEdward knew that the nearest Defence Force reinforcements were only two days away. During the night some troops found a large amount of scrap metal and much heavy weaponry with numerous amounts of ammunition in an abandoned warehouse. These were used to upgrade the weapons the Grand Army had and protect the tanks the possessed. These upgrades were made during the day and few attacks were made by the incumbent Defence Force.
An hour before day break on the 26th of November, Grand Army troops and tanks moved forwards toward Parliament House. It took the Grand Army three hours to break the fierce resistance they faced and gain access to Parliament. It took troops just twenty minutes to secure the House of Representatives. When troops arrived at the Upper House, the Senate, they met the incumbent Chief of Defence Force. Strapped to him was a load of dynamite. He was yelling out incoherent words and threatened to blow up the Senate if he was shot. After an hour and half of reasoning by PrimeMinisterEdward a Grand Army soldier tackled the Chief and arrested him. The revolution was complete.
There are various departments which are responsible for their respective fields. The Prime Minister has the authorisation to open or close them. Each department is lead by a minister which is part of PrimeMinisterEdward's Cabinet. There are two law making bodies within NewAustralia, Parliament and the courts.

NSIA is an agency of its own but works closely with the armed forces. The Grand Army is mainly responsible for overseas deployments while the Army is responsible for the defence of NewAustralia. Satellites are in place so as to assist in the defence of NewAustralia, namely, the KCMS system. Missile defence systems are currently under construction across the nation. The military is led by Keegan Williams, the first Minister for Defence for NewAustralia. Operations, however, are overseen by General Christopher Fowler.
