Welcome to the Empire of Lehmark!
Micronationalism and the Empire of Lehmark Explained
The Empire of Lehmark is a micronation founded by His Imperial Majesty William I, Emperor and Autocrat on 19 April 2019 and is built on the ideas of Absolutism and Social Progression. The Empire Lehmark claims sovereignty over the claimed Provinces of Lehmark.
What is a Micronation?
Micronations are a "new country project" and should not be confused with cults, anti-government groups, terrorist organizations, or threats to national security.
Almost all micronations have a structure that is similar to an established sovereign state, and tend to include: territorial claims, government institutions, official symbols and citizens.
Micronations are often quite small, in both their claimed territory and claimed populations and may also issue formal instruments such as postage stamps, coins, banknotes and passports, and bestow honours and titles of nobility.
Our Primary Goal as a Micronation:
The Empire of Lehmark is classified as a secessionist micronation - meaning we seek recognised independence and claim the right to self-determination and statehood under the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States.
Lehmark is being built from the ground-up by the Citizens of our Community through engagement and participation in many facets of micronational life in the Empire - such as employment, social clubs, events, education and much more.
Since April 2019, in Building Our Nation, we have so far made developments in the fields of:
Governance and its Structure
Civil Liberties and Freedoms
Advancement of University Education
Independent Digital Banking
Silver Bullion Backed Currency
Cultural Identity and Societal Values
Community Participation and Engagement
We have future plans to purchase land and build our first city - achieving the first stage of development as a microstate.
