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.
