Location
    (November 25, 1968- )
    Constructed under the name 'Roughs Tower' by the United Kingdom as a naval bases, four miles into international waters (1942)
    Left abandoned after the war (1945)
    Occupied by Paddy Roy Bates and his family (1967)
    As it is in international waters, British courts consistently rule that it is independent from the rest of the United Kingdom.
    Essentially, it is where an eccentric pirate radio broadcaster and his wife live as king and queen.
    There is a debate whether Sealand even is its own country or not, as it hasn't been formally recognized by any government in the world.
    Its inhabitants are known to shoot at those who enter their territorial waters.
    Though only around fifteen people are known to live there, it has its own currency, which it calls 'sealand dollars' (one sealand dollar = one American dollar).
    It is the base for HavenCo, which provides data havens.
    It tends to pat itself on the back on its official homepage, constantly reminding people that they are indeed sovereign.
    It is an artificial island.
    It was able to successfully defend itself from being taken over by a German businessman and his Dutch companions (1978).
    It negotiated with the German government to release the German businessman from captivity, giving them what they feel was formal recognition.
    It has its own Constitution.
    It has one of the few libertarian governments in the world.
