I think the lingua franca of Oz is Esperanto, not Portuguese.
It's defined as "Portanglish"  http://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=1274
A pidgin and portmanteau of Portuguese and English.

(And, er, are you sure you don't mean 100,000?)

Oops, you're right, I meant 100,000 seconds in a "day".

Portanglish is predominantly Portuguese with a lot of Spanish and some English thrown in. The grammar and idioms can seem "off" to a contemporary Portuguese speaker, which is to be expected of any language over a 1000-year span.
