Charles Joseph Burgardt (born 18 April 2002) is a micronationalist from Long Island closely associated with the Sayville Sector. Also known by the regnal name of Charles, he reigns over the Kingdom of Sayville, the Kingdom of Cheskgariya (where he also reigns as co-monarch of the Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth alongside King Frederick Stanislaus Augustus of Litvania), and the Kingdom of Great River.
Shortly following the independence of West Sayville in early 2019, Burgardt founded the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions, which later became a notable organization within the Sayville Sector.
Burgardt began to transition the commonwealth and its constituents into the field of micronationalism in the early summer. Soon after this event, he founded the Kingdom of Pinelandia on the 21st of August
At some point prior to April 2020, Burgardt became a member of the Communist Party of Paloma. He was appointed as Vice President of Paloma, though impeached after merely three days and declared a traitor to the state[clarification needed].
In April, Burgardt became a delegate to the Cupertino Alliance after the accession of Pinelandia to the alliance. Not long after, Burgardt was also awarded the prestigious Order of the Gadus on the 23rd of April.
Within the Kingdom of Baustralia, Burgardt served as the Deputy Leader of the Opposition under the Grand Union of Leftist Parties during the First Sullivan ministry. During the run-up to the June Election, he promoted policies such as the adoption of a communications service, the creation of progressive social policies, and the adoption of a pacifist foreign policy.
Burgardt won two seats during the June election in comparison to Nick Sullivan's eight, losing the race to become Prime Minister of Baustralia. After the election upset, he disestablished the Union Party and formed the Liberal Party of Baustralia.
On 13 May 2020, Burgardt joined the Baustralian Armed Forces as the Provost Marshal of His Royal Air Force. This command put his rank at Group captain, equivalent to an army colonel and a naval captain. On 3 October 2021, he and the post was elevated to the rank of Air commodore. At the dissolution of the Air Force, he was appointed postmaster general at the naval rank of Commodore up until the military placed Great Officers of State into the Royal Household formation.
He was elected in July 2022 to serve as 5th Prime Minister of Baustralia, and the first liberal Prime Minister. He remained in this post, victorious over a vote of confidence, and completed his agenda up to the point there was a shift in parliamentary power over to the Conservatives, and he resigned in favor of Sir Oliver Doig and was appointed Leader of the Opposition again. He was commended by King John for his successful leadership.
