Apparently, two weeks ago it was announced that the Principality of Hutt River would be ceded back to Australia, after 50 years of 'independence'. http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20200811-a-tiny-nation-in-outback-australia Some DI members of course know that the Principality has played an important role in degree mill history, something that is not mentioned in the BBC article. Neither are the many shady companies incorporated in the Principality. The story of the Hutt River Registrar of Companies who was bestowed with a knighthood by Prince Leonard Casley before he fell from grace and relocated to Vanuatu is quite interesting, though and alongside the many dodgy offshore companies, there were a number of unaccredited schools that called Hutt River home, like Southern Pacific University and Gordon University. Some still do, like Pebble Hills University and American Culture University.
