Strayapedia is the certified true dinkum, 100% Australian made, albeit foreign owned, answer to Wikipedia. Except it's run by one person, like Wikileaks, and also operates for legal reasons from the Ecuadorean embassy in London. Conveniently omitting all areas not relating to Australia, Strayapedia provides essential alternative facts about Tony Abbott, the ABC, AC/DC,the Akubra, Canberra, cask wine, Kylie Minogue, Bob Hawke, Hey Hey It's Saturday, Ned Kelly, koalas and Shane Warne, among many other indispensable topics. For anyone seeking to pass a citizenship test, or win a trivia night MCed by Cory Bernardi, Strayapedia is as valuable as a tiny apartment in Sydney. Patriotically basted in the goon-filled trough of Australian values. It's as quintessentially Strayan as bowling your final over underarm, not asking awkward questions about the contents of your meat pie, and naming a swimming pool after Harold Holt.
