Chersoneses is an Austenasian Crown Dependency an an enclave of Ukraine. It was established on 1 June 2020 after the landowner, Tara Oliynyk, donated the land to Austenasia. Chersoneses is situated near Mykolaiv. Chersoneses is by far the largest individual land claim of Austenasia, and by itself comprises more than half of Austenasian territory.

The Crown Dependency was annexed in part due to the circumstances surrounding the end of the May 2020 political crisis in Austenasia. With the resignation of Prince Dionisiy and the secession of several large areas of land from Austenasia, the Prince arranged for Oliynyk - a relative of his - to claim Chersoneses for Austenasia both as a gesture of goodwill and in partial "compensation" for the land claims that would be leaving.

Chersoneses consists of two non-contiguous areas of farmland, separated by 0.22 miles at their closest point. Olinynk and his father live in a property on the southern-most piece of land, and both residents are Orthodox Christians.
