Dustin I (Dustin William Ó Gairbhith; born 22 October 1984) is the founder of the Principality of Permaria and its reigning Prince since 2022. He also bears the titles Duke of Glacia and Count of Errington.

Early life

Dustin Ó Gairbhith was born at Saint Joseph's General Hospital in Comox, British Columbia. The oldest of two children, he adopted a lifelong interest in history and medieval mythology at a young age. His father is of English and Irish ancestry and his mother of Danish, English and German descent. His paternal ancestors were members of the Dál Fiatach dynasty, who were the ancient rulers of the Gaelic over-kingdom of Ulaid (today Ulster) for most of its history. Ó Gairbhith graduated from Vancouver Island University (then known as Malaspina University-College) in 2007, where he majored in business. In 2019 he married, and his wife currently reigns alongside him as Princess consort of Permaria.

Micronational career

Ó Gairbhith has been involved in micronationalism to varying degrees since 2019. He founded the House of Ó Gairbhith in 2021 as a royal dynasty to lay claim to his property as hereditary lands and achieve his aims of building a functional nation-state. Eventually joined by several close family members, the foundation for a micronation began to take shape. Ó Gairbhith was also involved with the Confederation of Northern Territories where he briefly served as a Senator, as well as the Holy Canadian Empire where he rose to the rank of Prince-elector. The Principality of Permaria was officially founded on 15 July 2022, with Ó Gairbhith being crowned as its first monarch and declared Prince Regnant of Permaria by his peers.


Under the reign of Dustin I, the fledgling principality experienced rapid growth and development in its early days. Its initial population grew to 6 subjects, with 4 becoming ennobled. Several princely decrees were enacted for the glory of the nation, notably the the banning of communism and Scientology. Important trade agreements were signed to expand the Permarian economy, with agriculture quickly becoming its largest sector.
