Lehmark and Micronationalism
The Empire of Lehmark is a micronation founded by His Imperial Majesty, William Lehman, Emperor and Autocrat of Lehmark on 19 April 2019. Lehmark currently has four States - 3 located in Australia and 1 in France. Lehmark has a total population of 35 Citizens, and 6 Citizens currently reside within the borders of the Empire.
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.
Lehmark's Primary Goal as a Micronation:
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.
Under customary international law as laid out in the Convention, Lehmark is an independent country, our next step is recognised independence from the wider international community.
We have Land Claims. We have Citizens. We have Government. All we need is recognition.
