The Principality of Sealand

Located in international waters, on the military fortress island of Roughs Tower, Sealand is the smallest country in the world. The country‘s national motto is "From the Sea, Freedom" (E Mare Libertas), reflecting its enduring struggle for liberty through the years. Sealand has been an independent sovereign State since 1967. The Bates family governs the small State as hereditary royal rulers, each member with his, or her, own royal title. Sealand upholds its own constitution, composed of a preamble and seven articles. Upon the declaration of independence, the founding Bates family raised the Sealand flag, pledging freedom and justice to all that lived under it. Following this, Sealand issued passports to its nationals, minted official currency and commissioned its own stamps.

Support can be shown for Sealand by purchasing Noble Titles and becoming a Lord or a Lady. Sealand also sells ID cards, and a piece of land in the Principality to help sustain its independence for the years to come. Other official Sealand products are also available from our online store. See shop

They were situated along the east coast of England on the edge of the English territorial waters. One of these bases, consisting of concrete and steel construction, was the famous royal fort Roughs Tower situated slightly north of the estuary region...
