Back in the day you could have been a "Ten Pound Pom" Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin

Created in 1945 during the government of Ben Chifley as part of the "Populate or Perish" policy by the first Minister for Immigration, Arthur Calwell, the scheme was designed to substantially increase the population of Australia and to supply workers for the country's booming industries. In return for subsidising the cost of travelling to Australia—adult migrants were charged only ten pounds sterling for the fare (hence the name; in 1945 pounds, equivalent to £377 in 2014), and children were allowed to travel for free—the Government promised employment prospects, housing and a generally more optimistic lifestyle. However, on arrival, migrants were placed in basic hostels and the expected job opportunities were not always readily available.[2] It was a follow-on to the unofficial Big Brother Movement and attracted over one million migrants from the British Isles between 1945 and 1972, representing the last substantial scheme for preferential migration from the British Isles to Australia.[3] In 1957, more migrants were encouraged to travel following a campaign called "Bring out a Briton". Coming to an end in 1982,[4] the scheme reached its peak in 1969; during this year over 80,000 migrants took advantage of the scheme.[5] The cost to migrants of the assisted passage was increased to £75 in 1973 (equivalent to £791 in 2014).[2]

While the term "Ten Pound Pom" is in common use, the scheme was not limited to just migrants from the United Kingdom. Persons born in the Irish Free State or in the southern counties of Ireland prior to the establishment of the Republic of Ireland in 1949 were also classified as British subjects.[6] In fact most British subjects were eligible and, at the time, that included not only those from the British Isles but also residents of British colonies such as Malta and Cyprus. Australia also operated schemes to assist selected migrants from other countries, notably the Netherlands (1951), Italy (1951), Greece (1952), West Germany (1952), and Turkey (1967).[7]

Assisted migrants were generally obliged to remain in Australia for two years after arrival, or alternatively refund the cost of their assisted passage. If they chose to travel back to Britain, the cost of the journey was at least £120 (in 1945 pounds, equivalent to £4,518 in 2014), a large sum in those days and one that most could not afford.[4] It was also possible for many British persons to migrate to Australia on a non-assisted basis before the early 1970s, although most travelled as Ten Pounders. This was part of the wider White Australia Policy. A quarter of British migrants chose to return to the UK but half of these—the so-called "Boomerang Poms"—returned to Australia.[4]

Before 1 December 1973, migrants to Australia from Commonwealth countries were eligible to apply for Australian citizenship after one year's residence in Australia. In 1973 the residence requirement was extended to three years, then reduced to two years in November 1984. However, relatively few British migrants—compared to other postwar arrivals, such as Italians, Greeks, and Turks—took up Australian citizenship. Consequently, many lost their Australian resident status later on, usually through leaving Australia.

hawaii? not a country... yet.

as for myself... i'm thinking: mexico - that way, if trump gets elected president, hey... at least there will be a big ass wall between us.
My wife and I have both always fancied New Zealand.  Beautiful country, beautiful people (especially the natives, imo), nice weather, not absolutely terrible employment options, not quite as many uber-rednecks as Australia...  And no one has any reason to nuke the place Tongue .

That said, we just moved to the Seattle, Washington area (in the US) from Maryland, and it was most definitely an upgrade!

It's a total non sequitur, but it's often very funny, when people from other countries come to visit, because they almost never truly grasp the scale of the country.  This was (nearly verbatim, but it's been years) an actual conversation snippet:
Them: "Oh, we were planning on visiting DC, then New York, then Boston, and maybe a side trip to Miami somewhere in the middle."
Me: "Not over ONE WEEKEND, you're not!" Big Grin  ...
