The one that's most often talked about is the Principality of Sealand. It's on an old British observation post in the sea. There was a period of time where it was outside of UK territorial waters (I'm sure the link will tell you why), and it was purchased and claimed its own soverignty.

There are a lot of places like this: some are new like Sealand, but most are old city-states that are just accepted. Luxembourg is a good example of the latter.

What about the vatican. It is my understanding that it is it's own country, even though it is in another country.

yeah, the vatican is it's own country. it's a city state similar to luxembourg. a couple other countries inside a country are lesotho and swaziland, which are surrounded by south africa.

as for anywhere to hide hackers and offenders? what do you mean by that? like the give amnesty to these people or something?

Hey, don't forget the most important mini-country of all: Cuervo Nation! An island bought by Jose Cuervo (of tequila fame) out in the Caribbean. Check out www.CuervoNation.com...

They even wrote to the UN asking for recognition as a unique country. But the letter was ignored. :-(

yes
is it because hackers and offenders want to refug from some country's chase,so they hide in there??

Not exactly. Sealand makes a lot of income from being a "data haven", if you'll forgive me for the cyberpunk reference. They host servers, websites, stuff like that. They tend to be a bit more leniant than other places, it's true, but they do have their limits.

As for physically hiding hackers, etc. No, Sealand doesn't do that. It's not a big platform, so it wouldn't take too long to search


For other "mini-nations," a lot of the Native American tribes' reservations in the US are legally sovereign nations. In practice it doesn't quite work that way, but it's quite tidy on paper.

"Sealand" looks like it would be easier to take over than the Comoros Islands.
