A number of countries have claimed soveriegn rights to Antarctic Territory; several of these claims overlap, and could potentially be disputed (see map below). Australia has the largest territorial claim, claiming 42% of the Antarctic Continent. The Antarctic Treaty (signed in 1961) puts all territorial claims on hold for the duration of the treaty, so no one actually owns Antarctica at the moment.
