First of all, thanks for your replies, and your help. You guys rawk.
Since I would probably say the same thing to more than one of you, I'm going to make a new post of this.
Now then. I think I should have clarified my initial question; apologies.
The only geographical area I had in mind was "mindspace", the place a country's myths, or heritage, come from. I know that there are a lot of European myths coming from the Middle Ages (I also know I am generalizing, but that's for argument's sake), and from what I have seen I'm rather convinced that there are a lot of US myths coming from everything attached to the Wild West era / area. As nugirlontheblok
just said, it is the concept, not the actual physical thing.
Yes, I meant both Outback and Wild West referring to non-Aboriginal Australia and non-Native American USA.
So, from what I gather by your replies, there is few or no romanticizing Australia-the-land-and-landscape in, say, literature or art, like there is with the US and the Wild West, or Europe and the Middle Ages, or, come to think of it, Canada and the land?
