The Rt Hon. Sir Sean Douangaphaivong, Baron Douangaphaivong (due-wong-uh-pie-vong) is an American micronationalist, who served as the Minister of Foreign Relations for the Kingdom of Liahonia until 1 June 2021. He took a hiatus to serve a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Mexico City Southeast Mission, and resumed his duties as Minister of Foreign Relations on 20 May 2023.
Sean Douangaphaivong was born on 11 December 2001 in San Diego, California, as the oldest of four children. He spent most of his childhood living in various parts of the United States - including Virginia, Minnesota, Tennessee, and central California - until his family moved to Washington State around 2015. His family then decided to finally put down roots, and has lived in the Seattle area since.
Douangaphaivong was uninvolved with all micronational politics until December 2018, when his cousin, Matthew the Great, established the Republic of Ut Pace. He continued to remain aloof from affiliating with micronations until 22 January 2020, when he applied for citizenship and a position within the Ministry of Liahonia.
