The UK and the States of Australia all have the Queen as our Head of State. In England, the monarch owns all the land - we can only own a freehold in it (basically means we have the Queen's permission to live there rent free). So the Queen of Australia owns the land your house is built on - sod it, they own us!

The president doesn't own the US, and Gordon Brown doesn't OWN Great Britain. I suppose you could say it's owned by no one, people just think of themselves in Australia as subjects of the Queen. Sure, people can own property, such as a fully paid off house, but you can't really own a country.

The register, compiled by the Australian Tax Office, shows 13.6 per cent of Australia's farmland is foreign-owned. UK-based investors own 27.5 million hectares or almost 53 per cent of that portion.
The Coalition has increased scrutiny of foreign purchases of rural land, but how much is currently owned overseas and are the concerns valid?
