The Principality of Sealand is a Microstate 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 Major HRH Prince Roy of Sealand; his associates and family claim that it is an independent sovereign state. External commentators generally classify Sealand as a micronation.[2] While it has been described as the world's smallest nation,[3] Sealand is currently only recognized by the Kingdom of Portugal, although Roy Bates claims it was de facto also recognised by Germany as they have sent a diplomat to the micronation, and by the United Kingdom after an English court ruled it did not have jurisdiction over Sealand, although neither action constitutes de jure recognition as far as the respective countries are concerned.

HMFRIM the King of Portugal has officially shown interest in buying the Principality for personal use, not to join Portugal.
