They probably use country of birth. Arguing that "Centrelink" knows is
about as sensible as arguing "Centrelink" cares though.

I remember numerous times where I've had to produce my birth certificate
(the falsified Australian one) or my citizenship papers despite the fact I
speak impeccable English.

To be perfectly honest, I normally don't even bother now. I say my country
of birth is Australia - which is false - and noone even raises an eyebrow.

Not an easy one; I guess one could use "Country of Birth" but you'd need
to have a reasonably sensitive set of follow up questions to work out what
that meant.
