One of my friends has found a small piece of land that used to be owned by England in the sea. He says that because he has fond it and no one else owns it is officially his, but i keep saying surley you have to go through a lot of legal stuff for it to be classed as a country but he says you don't. I dont no how to prove him wrong cos he's smarter then i am n he confuses me with a load of technical stuff. I just want to know if anybody knows what it is u have 2 do 2 be able 2 own a county n is my friend right?


Cheers.

It's WITHIN UK waters, and as it is not recognized by the UN, etc., it is not a country.

Plus, there is NO land - just a tower.
It's practically an Oil Rig, but without the Oil. Or the Rig.

it would more likely be considered a province than country, and then he would still be held liable under the laws of the country he holds citizenship in

IF no one actually owns it then he can move there and declare it his country untill someone with more money then him decides that that's not the case. and then hes ****ed.
#14
How does he know it's unclaimed? Someone else could have already claimed it and he wouldn't know. In short, your friend is a cun.t

No, UK is in HIS WATERS.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

are you talking about sealand? the unused military gun emplacement? because that is officially a country even though it's just a few miles off the coast, within british waters etc.
IF your friend has found another one then you have to write to parliament to claim it (because its off the english coast, they decide your fate) then has to be recogniced by the UN, NATO and EU.

good luck

He won't get recognized by the UN

He needs to be recognized by other countries as an independent nation, he needs GDP, GNP, a form of government, public institutions, labour, paying jobs, etc.

Even though I've probably been beaten to it.
