The Principality of Sealand was originally a floating ocean fort to prevent German aircraft from having free access to lay out mines. Seeing as it was in international waters it technically belonged to no nation. After its abandonment, a crazy pirate radio broadcaster by the name of Major Patty Roy Bates claimed the platform as his own nation and even came up with his own flag, passports, currency, and national anthem. The micro nation even had a Coup d'état where the nations "Prime Minister" hired mercenaries to capture the towers and kidnap Bates' son. The rebellion was crushed, but it also resulted in Germany recognizing the countries existence. Since then Sealand has been part of a lot of financial schemes and scandals, and is still considered one of the leading micronations

This small island is called Migingo, about 500 people live on it. The island has it's own restaurants, church, bars, a cinema (room with chairs and a TV) and it even has a brothel.

Pirate Bay tried to buy Sealand so that they did not have to obey some copyright laws. I totally saw it on the internet so it must be true.
