A group of frustrated residents from Point Cook, in Melbourne's west, want to turn their fast-growing suburb into a sovereign nation.
The residents say they are sick of being ignored by governments of all levels and are ready to secede from Australia.
Local resident Tony Hooper started the push for independence and was the first to admit it was a wild idea.
According to the ABC, they have even thought of who they would like to be their head of state: "I'd talk to Prince Harry and say 'You're limited with where you're going with the Royal family, why don't you join us?'" said Mr Hooper.
