The Emperor and Lehmark

I always had a keen interest in politics and as I grew up I realised, the system I once supported was broken and self-serving. The political desire and will to build the nation and build the people was naught. Everything was done with the purpose of staying elected.

I lost faith in the Parliament of Australia and the politicians representing my voice. I wanted to represent my own voice, using my own politics morals. I refused to try my hand in the system I had available to me. I wanted to find a way to make my own system, but I had no idea where to start.

On 17 April 2019, I was browsing YouTube to find a new video, it suggested a documentary about micronationalism. The video was only 6 minutes long, so I watched it. I was able to learn that micronationalism provided the opportunity to form a country and community based on personal ideas, passions, morals and attitudes.

All that was needed was a land claim and a name.

So then on 19 April 2019, I declared via Imperial Decree that my house and land, was now the Empire of Lehmark, with myself as Emperor and Autocrat. The following day the Constitution was accepted by Imperial Decree and I begun to lay foundations for what we have now.

Lehmark boasts a thriving community dedicated to the Social Progression of Our Society, based on the Wills of Our People, and achieved through Absolutism and Autocracy.

Through Lehmark's initial ideas I have brought together many people who now contribute to building Lehmark into a nation that has been built by her Citizens and not just myself.

I hope that in time more people will become Citizens and contribute to the history and development of our nation.
