The Principality Of Sealand Is this the smallest country in the world?

The Principality of Sealand has their own flag, national anthem, currency and so much more. So does that make it a country?

Sealand is located in the North Sea off of the UK and can only be reached by boat or helicopter.

I was fortunate enough to be invited by the Royal Family of Sealand to visit, and I wrote about it on my blog.

Great article and interview, thanks for sharing Ric!

I was curious how many other island-based micronations there are, and came across this Wikipedia article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_micronations which lists approximately 100 or so self-proclaimed entities.

How many people in the "country counting" community are also visiting micronations? And do you plan on visiting more?

I have seen that list on wikipedia ... it is quite fascinating. And there are a lot more than that as well.

I think the biggest challenge is determining how many micronations there are. I am not sure there is a clear number on that. Jonny Blair has a list of 600 or so "countries" he is chasing with a lot of micronations.
