Australia: Relocate Dept. of Treasury's HQ to Alice Springs. Alice Springs is a...

...small city in the center of Australia.  The City of Alice Springs will surely appreciate the government jobs that such a relocation will bring their community and it wouldn't hurt the people who work for the Treasury Department to live in a small city so they MIGHT better understand how the economy works in smaller communities, as opposed to major urban centers like Washington DC and New York City.

Australia and America have long liked each other.  Maybe it is because both have such massive, wide open spaces that they can relate to each other.  Maybe it is because California and the east coast of Australia have the same surfer dude attitude towards life.  Maybe it is because both Australia and America are populated with rugged individualists.  Whatever the reason, it wouldn’t be surprising that, of all the countries listed in this challenge category, Australia would be the one that most Americans would like to join their nation.
