New Country: United Kingdom Of Atlantis

Mon Feb 16, 2004 11:38 am

Well - apparently the world has a brand new country - The United Kingdom of Atlantis ruled by King Sheikh Yakub Al-Sheikh Ibrahim who is actually facing investigation by the United States for wire fraud, money laundering and income tax evasion.

According to printouts from the official United Kingdom of Atlantis Web site, the country is located northeast of Australia, east of Papua New Guinea, southwest of the Solomon Islands, and west of Vanuatu, which apparently would place it somewhere in the Coral Sea.

Here is some "information" from the UKA official website: "Stargate Island, is the largest of the South Pacific Islands, is the headquarters for the government. The capital city, Stargate City, is also where the palace of Royal Noble House of Ibrahim Khalil and the Steering Committee for the nation is located."

Recently the UKA tried to loan Palau $100m at 2% interest - sound bogus to you? Indeed.

I must say - the official website was good for a laugh.

Did these frauds really think people would think this was legitimate?

School geography just became that more important in my eyes.

Must say though that HRH Princess Samantha is kinda cute.

I believe the Australian Federal Police are now investigating - as the area this country claims to be from is located in The coral sea islands territories of Australia. Also a contact in Western Australia is listed on their website.

This could get interesting....
