President Yaroslav Mar signed a Decree appointing Leigh Singleton the Ambassador of Lostisland to the Commonwealth of Australia.
H.E. Amb. Leigh Singleton is an Australian metal worker and paranormal investigator. Growing up in York, one of the most haunted cities of Europe, he had experiences, such as feelings, sounds, and voices that cannot be explained. Leigh takes a skeptical approach to the investigation, always attempting to debunk any phenomena before claiming it to be paranormal.
Despite its population exceeding 25 million, there hasn’t been any Lostislandic presence in Australia up until 2020. As of November 2020, there are only two Lostislandic citizens in Australia, with Ambassador Singleton being the second by date of joining.
The Ambassadors of Lostisland are the highest officials representing Lostisland in a particular country, responsible for speaking on behalf of the Lostislandic Government, coordinating the activities of resident Lostislandic citizens, and establishing a dialogue with local authorities and organizations. The Lostislandic diplomatic service underwent a major overhaul in September 2020, dubbed “Defenestration of 2020” by Ian Siapno, the Ambassador to the Philippines, in which half of the Ambassadors were dismissed following failure to pass the recertification. Leigh Singleton will become the ninth Ambassador of Lostisland, and the second one to be appointed after the overhaul.
Lostislandic citizens who are over 18, hold a high school degree, are not members of other new nation projects (micronations), and have never relinquished Lostislandic citizenship in the past may request to be appointed Ambassadors by filling in the application form.
