‘Country’ For Sale

Via Slashdot, comes the news that data (and maybe tax) haven Sealand is for sale. The ‘nation’ has had some problems recently.

Sealand claims to be a country based on its fixation to the continental shelf in what were then but are not now international waters. Although this claim is not recognized by anyone that matters, the claim is somewhat less ludicrous than that of any other man-made micro-nation, e.g. that of the Dominion of Melchizedek.
