So at the risk of fanning the flames, how about "Freedom Australia"?  Ok, so
the "LA" acronym no longer works, but is that such a big issue?  Then you
shouldn't need to explain anything.  On the other hand, using "Libre"
prompts a conversation which may be something that we actually want to do.

So, "Freedom ANZ", or (if the clash with a certain financial institution
needs to be avoided) "Freedom NZA"?  Both roll off the tongue fairly well,
although the long form is a bit of a mouthful.
