Principality of Sealand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This guy occupied an abandoned military structure located 6 miles off the coast of England in claimed it was a sovereign nation (which he named Sealand), and dubbed himself "Prince Roy". Sealand has even been involved in a war with England.

Although they look like props from an H.G. Wells film adaptation, these giant metal towers in the Thames estuary were actually constructed to protect England from German air raids during WWII. The forts were decommissioned in the 1950s, and the abandoned towers were used by pirate radio operators in the following decades. Today, one of the forts is managed by micronation Principality of Sealand

This Concrete Speck in the North Sea Is a Country - The Principality of Sealand has its own flag, a white diagonal stripe dividing fields of red and black. It has currency, postage stamps, a national anthem (“E Mare Libertas,” which is also its national motto, meaning “from the sea, freedom”), and even a soccer team. Never heard of Sealand? That’s not a surprise. It’s a concrete dot in the North Sea roughly the size of two tennis courts.

Never heard of Sealand? That's not a surprise. It's a concrete dot in the North Sea roughly the size of two tennis courts, and it's never been recognized by any other nation on Earth. But that never bothered its eccentric founder, Paddy Roy Bates.
