Interesting graphs, especially to compare home town to state or country

So when I read this article only 2 things really stood out to me. The first thing I noticed was that everybody lives on the coast. It seemed like no body lives in central Australia which makes me wonder what makes up the majority of the country/continent. Forest? I don't blame Australians for living on the coast tho. I'm sure it's as beautiful as heaven. Ironically the next thing I noticed was the lack of religion. 22% are atheist which seems like a high percentage to me. Of course I'm not judging or telling them how to live, I just find it interesting they aren't really big into religion.
