Anyone heard of the Principality of Sealand?



I have, yes. It's one of the things that got me kind of interested in the subject.

Here's an amusing and interesting series by the BBC from a few years back. Perhaps you'd enjoy it.
I'd actually considered forming a microstate at my family's farm in Ireland, it was a project I've put on the back burner for now.

Calling a human illegal is the most ridiculous thing. ­ The concept of "illegal immigration" is the cancer of society. No borders, no nations, no deportations.

It begins with multiple smart and wealthy people worldwide (me as the leader) in a clandestine alliance annexing small islands that are controlled by despots. Machines are built to purify salt water, farms are made, and an underground "trade" begins. Eventually, a secret military is formed with a decent navy and a large, well-trained army. Before your country, Op, is known to the world's media, I discover it.

I fire torpedoes at all of your submarines, digging machines, and underwater city from a safe position only slightly below sea level. Your entire population dies. Even if some of your people survive in rogue escape vessels, regrowth is impossible. I take all of your remaining resources for my sub-country's own personal benefit and continue to extract every penny from other weak nations until I can develop a quick interplanetary travel system with maximum security and unparalleled technology. I finally create a permanent colony on Luna and name it "Valhalla".

It begins inside a glass dome with constant supply ships and farms populated by government men. After a surplus has been attained, more domed colonies are added on to, and a strict civilian populace resides.

Don't mind me saying this, but if that happened it would be WAR! Lols

1. Collect 1 dollar from every user on Minecraftforums
2. Buy this island chain for 79,500
3. Move to said island chain
4. Use leftover money to establish nation
5. Kill each other over the disagreement about how said nation should be run
6. Communists win because the forums are filled with them
7. U.S. subtly overthrows the communist government and installs me as a puppet dictator
8. Everyone is happy forever

The end Posted Image

You forgot step 9. Armenian Army invades with one person (me) and conquers the island chain.

Don't judge me because I'm fabulous.

I would just like to point out something for this thread layout- can you put previous discussion topics in spoilers, and then list from which page to which page it extends to? As well, list the pages for the ongoing discussion.

i.e.-
Spoiler:

Something along the lines of that, that way people just coming into the thread can follow what discussions already went on and/or jump straight to where the new discussion starts.

Yes, I will do that. Thanks for the suggestion on marking the pages too Posted Image

The ocean floor seems like a really expensive idea (then again, my first thought was the moon). While all of the land on Earth is technically claimed, there's a ton of space in Canada and Russia that nobody is really living in. It's probably way cheaper to set something up up there, though you would have to deal with political issues.

I just came up with a silly idea about a nomad nation, not in the traditional sense but like a cruise ship acting like a country, always travelling. Things like becoming self-sufficient will be quite hard with this though..

EDIT: Wait what. I just discovered that this was already in the poll. Lol.
