Default English as Official Language

From what I've found on the Internet, English is not the official language of England. It's not the official language of the United States or Australia. But it is an official language in India and Canada. And many other countries.

The technicality is that English was never made an official language in these countries. No law was made that English be used by the government and the courts. Although, in the United States, some States have made it their official language.
