The Sovereign State of Aeterna Lucina (also known as the Sovereign Humanitarian Mission State of Aeterna Lucina) was an Australian micronation created in 1978 by German migrant Paul Neuman. He claimed to have received the title ‘Baron Neuman of Kara Bagh’ from exiled king Hassan III of Afghanistan. The area he claimed was originally a property near Byron Bay but it's location changed as he moved elsewhere. Over the years Paul Neuman is said to have been awarded hundreds of other honours, including professorships, Doctorates of Philosophy, and degrees in divinity. He faced fraud charges in 1990 over illegal land and visa sales. This micronation dissolved when Neuman died.
