Sealand For Sale

Principality of Sealand

Principality of Sealand, a WWII-era gunnery platform called Roughs Tower, in the North Sea outside Britain’s pre-1968 three nautical mile claim of sovereign waters, is for sale.

Yep, the “land” declared by some as the world’s smallest micronation will go to the highest bidder. Ravage by fire (2006), beset by marauders (1978), and generally ignored by the world’s governments (all time), it’s, well, it is what it is.

And now The Pirate Bay hopes to buy Sealand. Yep, it’s true, and they’ve setup a site to accept donations.
