I would suggest Hell, but it appears that may also be confusing. Correct, but confusing.

Irish_bob and BCC_1 need to stay on topic. This is on South Australia, not Ireland or the EU

Why change the name? Everywhere I look in travel sites and such, I always see South Africa abbreviated as ZA, in line with their national internet domain of co.za. Pretty pointless changing the name now, Australians have better things to worry about, IMO.

Hmmm, where's Jacqs? She'd come up with a brilliant suggestion for a new name, I'm sure. She's already taken care of renaming the capital - either Deadalaide or Addlebraine.

You are dead right, Bradman was originally from Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW.
There is even a Bradman Museum in Bowral dedicated to Bradman and cricket memorabilia.
He did not move to SA to play Sheffield Shield for this state until his mid-20's, although he then spent the rest of his adult life there.
On the original subject, one idea is amalgamating SA with the Northern Territory and calling it Central Australia.
Even if the abbreviation for this - CA, may confuse some with California, I think it would be more appropriate and attract international tourists to both the former SA and NT.
It should also be noted that the abbreviation for Western Australia - WA - is also the shorts for Washington State in the US. I wonder how much confusion that causes to WA?

I'm an overseas visitor with no confusion whatsoever over SA/South Australia. I know where it begins and ends and I even know the color of the SA CFS fire trucks. (white)
