Nor is it a country, of course.

Not in your typical sense of the word, but legally it is. I remember a hilarious incident when England tried to extend its borders about a mile further out, so that Sealand was technically part of England, but then Sealand did the same, claiming much of SouthEast England as its rightful territory!

The world is full of micro nations like this one.. this one is not the smallest by the way.

Lonely Planet has made a book containing a lot of micro states:
