IMPORTANT POLICY ADJUSTMENT
As of 27 November 2020, in order to provide for Lehmark's future, we will not be accepting Citizenship Applications from those have not Applied for a Lehmark Career Opportunity BEFORE submitting their Citizenship Application. Over the two years of our existence, we have been very lucky with the number of people who have become part of Lehmark, unfortunately we have one of the most inactive populations around, and not due to lack of trying on the Government's part. As a result we have plenty of Citizens who collect "Citizenships" and we never hear from again. Thus we only need people who are genuinely interested in furthering our development as a micronation.
This policy will not remain forever, but will be in place until such a time Lehmark has sufficient membership in her Government to carry out further tasks and development. This Policy places no barriers to Citizenship, and our wording is clear, you only have to Apply for a Career, not be accepted for the job. We will interview you as part of the job application process, we may decide you don't fit the position and if that does happen, and as long as you pass the Test, your Application for Citizenship will still be approved.
