Klingon word: 'aSralya'
Part of speech: noun
Definition: Australia
Source: qepHom 2016

AFAIK never used in a sentence.  

Here's the (very) few Oz-related items that I'm aware of:

nu'SIylan 		New Zealand (GN)  [TNK]

taSman 		ditch (n)  [MO > 'ISqu' (1/15/2012)]
(QeS, 1/26/2012):  the Tasman Sea, which separates Australia and New Zealand. Both Kiwis and us Aussies often refer to the other country as being "across the ditch".

rejghun  		undergarments,  underwear (n)  [qep’a’ 2019]
(Chris O’Regan, July(?) 2019):  has anyone considered that {rejghun} could resemble the Australian rhyming slang term - Reg Grundies' - to mean undies?

And, finally, De'vID once joked :

(De’vID, 4/24/2019):  You must be talking about the {qengwI' ru'}, a mammal native to {Qo'noS} which carries its young, but only temporarily until they're old enough to survive on their own.

Any others?
