The Principality of Sealand


Hey Adrian, this post, about the Principality of Sealand is for you since I know you like geography so much. Remeber the discussion we had about the Vatican and it being the smallest country in the world? Click on any of the colored words in this post for some articles and links for you about the guy that is trying to make his own nation on an old WWII gun fortress on a platform out in the North Sea of the British coast. Although they are not recognized oficially by any country as thier own country they have thier own flag, anthem and passports. They have even made thier own postage stamps and have minted coins. A good source for photos and other things is the Sealand News website.
