Read more and you will find out nobody recognizes them as a sovereign nation and the UK has long since increased its borders into international waters bringing them back into UK territory.

Then there is this snippet taken directly from that Wiki page...

The United Kingdom is one of 165 parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (in force since 1994), which states in part V, article 60, that: "Artificial islands, installations and structures do not possess the status of islands. They have no territorial sea of their own, and their presence does not affect the delimitation of the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone or the continental shelf." In the opinion of law academic John Gibson, "because Sealand was man-made there was little chance that it would be recognized as a nation."

This is basically just a bunch of wannabe's who think they are Kings and Queens and they will even sell you a Lordship title and stupid crap like that, basically a money making scam run by some dumb wits who think they are royalty. I bet you if you got enough people from Texas and a big enough boat you could invade and take over Sealand, after all the crap they put the government through odds are they would tell them to get there own army since they are there own little country!

Actually, it has a really interesting history.

'In August 1978, while Bates and his wife were in England, Alexander Achenbach, who describes himself as the Prime Minister of Sealand, hired several German and Dutch mercenaries to spearhead an attack of Roughs Tower. They stormed the tower with speedboats, jet skis and helicopters, and took Bates' son hostage. Bates was able to retake the tower and capture Achenbach and the mercenaries. Achenbach, a German lawyer who held a Sealand passport, was charged with treason against Sealand and was held unless he paid DM 75,000 (more than US$35,000 or £23,000). The governments of the Netherlands, Austria and Germany petitioned the British government for his release, but the United Kingdom disavowed his imprisonment, citing the 1968 court decision. Germany then sent a diplomat from its London embassy to Roughs Tower to negotiate for Achenbach's release. Roy Bates relented after several weeks of negotiations and subsequently claimed that the diplomat's visit constituted de facto recognition of Sealand by Germany.'

Lol, this sounds like something right out of sealab 2021. An obnoxious rich dude buys a sea platform just so he can call himself king and tell people what to do.
