There would not be a lot of plants in a shrubland climate like the Outback. The only plants that would are the sandhill canegrass, coolabah, and Mitchell grass.
Animals that typically live in the xeric shrubland region are those that are able to travel at long distances or burrow in the ground.
These include skinks, taipans, sandhill dunnarts, crest-tailed mulgaras, and marsupial moles.
Of course, a staple of outback travel would have to be the camel, introduced by Banshin traders. These creatures can store water for long periods of time, while also withstanding desert heat. They can travel to parts where the iron-roads cannot. This is not unlike the introduction of camels in Australia, since 20,000 camels were brought to the continent within the span of 50 years ending in 1920. They were brought from the Arabian peninsula, India, and Afghanistan.
Throughout southern Pimzarblan, there would be Banshin communities, in which they intermarried with the local Pimzarblan. The most notable Banshin presence would be along the fringes between the outback and the tropical south.
In Dusquing, dragons do exist, though they come in different forms. There are feathery dragons who live in the mountaintops, island-dragons, and poisonous dragons that live in the desert. The third type would definitely be seen in the outback.
Poisonous dragons would resemble the gila monster and the komodo dragon, and would be the smallest of the three types of dragons, with dark, beaded skin.
