You may have heard of the Principality of Sealand. If you haven't, quick explanation, copypasta'd from the Wikipedia page
The Principality of Sealand is a micronation located on HM Fort Roughs, a former World War II Maunsell Sea Fort in the North Sea 10 km (six miles) off the coast of Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. Since 1967, the facility has been occupied by former radio broadcaster and British Army Major Paddy Roy Bates, his associates and family, who claim that it is an independent sovereign state. External commentators generally classify Sealand as a micronation. It has been described as the world's best-known micronation. Sealand is not recognized as a sovereign state by any United Nations member, and critics, citing court rulings in the United States and in Germany, have asserted that Roughs Tower has always remained under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom.
Seriously, this country is miniscule.
This is a picture of it:
I have long been a fan of Sealand. Well, yesterday, my (amazing) friends pitched in and bought me a Baronship for my birthday. And while I kind of hate to tell other people about it...well, just click here.
For sixteen pounds, you can officially become a Baron, Baroness, Lord, or Lady of Sealand, joining the ranks of Franz Ferdinand, Lord Beckett, and the Baron Munchausen in pretentious titles. I am already practicing my Lancashire accent, looking up recipes for scones, and finding all the best deals on wigs and monocles.
I think you all know what this means: Jim Sterling could officially become Lord Baron Jimothy Edward von Sterling III.
