Kindle Fire HD-"country settings not supported" message

I bought a Kindle Fire HD in the UK, while on holiday. Now, back to Australia, I cannot use it at its full potential. I cannot download any application or use the Amazon cloud player. When I am trying to download any app, the message "country settings not supported" pops up.
Any advice?

At this point the Fire is US and UK only AFAIK, although I read somewhere that things like the app store were expanding to world wide soon (not sure where I read that). Hopefully someone here will have some kind of workaround for you.

You can of course sideload apps, including other app stores and not use Amazon's app store.

Thanks for your reply. You mentioned that I could sideload apps and not use Amazon's app store (perhaps use any Android app store). How?

I just fixed this by going Manage Kindle, and setting my address in 1-click settings, and then selecting this address from the pull down menu in Country Settings.

One possibility is to turn off Location Based Services in the More Menu from the Main Screen.

Another possibility is to use a UK IP obtained from this link:

http://www.hide-my-ip.com/

Yet another possibility is to mail your unit to a friend in the UK to do all your downloading for you and then send it back to you for reading.
