However, the situation abroad is not optimistic. There is even a small country in Australia because of the epidemic, the country is wiped out!
This country is :Hutt River Principality.
It was established on April 21, 1970 and is located in Australia, near Perth, the capital of Western Australia. It covers an area of 75 square kilometers, which is not really counted. Small, larger than the smallest country in the world like the Vatican and Monaco, and twice the size of Macau.
Guess how many people are in the population? There are only 26 people!
Speaking of the reason for its founding, it was due to the”conflict with the Australian government.
The contemporary king Prince Leonard Casley’s father, Prince Leonard Casley, was originally a wheat farmer in Western Australia. Due to the production of wheat and the Australian authorities had a fierce conflict, he declared independence in his anger and established the Hutt River Principality. Five government departments were appointed by their entourage and relatives, and claimed allegiance to the Queen of England.
It has its own independent national flag and national emblem. In an internal letter from the Australian Land and Resources Bureau in 1989, its independence was confirmed, but Australia and other countries in the world , But does not recognize the existence of this country on official occasions, and Australia still collects taxes on how it should be taxed.
Although Australia The Principality of Hutt River has never been recognized, but the Principality has continued to grow in decades, and has even been recognized by the Supreme Commander of the Commonwealth, the Queen of England.
After establishing the country, the king and his wife began to use tax incentives to recruit citizens, and the effect was good. At the highest number, there were as many as 30 citizens.
In 1977, Australia urged the Hutt River Principality to pay taxes, and the King was angry Australia declared war. Of course, he did not send troops because the Hutt River Principality had no troops of its own.
It was not until more than 10 years before the country was established. In addition to the army, the army also includes the army, the navy and a military academy.
The sparrow is small and has all five internal organs
This small country is human Few but quite good at playing, like an independent country, there is something.
not only the national flag and national anthem
also issued currency,
and the passport of your country.
We even set up overseas offices in 13 countries and regions including the United States and France.
In this way, the country has attracted a large number of tourists from all over the world to come here for sightseeing. They have also established new tourist attractions and this gate with Chinese characters written on it. , Is called”the door to the natural spiritual world”.
Tourists need to apply for a visa to enter and leave the country. The visa fee is 4AUD.
Since 2000, the country has also started a series of public affairs such as company registration and driver’s license, and even wants to build a national university by itself!
According to the king’s statement:All this is because we are a free independent country!
Why did the country perish?
From the declaration of independence of the Hutt River Principality to today, it is exactly the 50th anniversary. Once in the 46th year of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the Queen of England personally sent a congratulatory message to congratulate the 46th anniversary of the founding of the Hutt River Principality. In April of this year, they were still celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Did a country perish in just a few months? What exactly is going on?
The country’s main economic sources are stamps, wild flowers, agricultural products and tourism, of which tourism accounts for the majority, but due to the impact of the epidemic, the country has suspended Open to tourists,
But losing tourists means that there is no source of income. The country’s financial situation has plummeted. Faced with the 3 million tax demanded by the Australian government, the king had to Declare”national subjugation” and sell the country to repay debts.
Looking at father His country was destroyed in his own hands, and Prince Graeme Casley, who had just ascended to the throne of the king at the beginning of the year, felt very uncomfortable.
In 2020, we will once again witness history. Because of the epidemic, even a “country” has been destroyed.
