I've possibly made a horrible mistake.

I just discussed the amusing concept of micronations with my Dear Spouse. The things we find on Wikipedia! Oh, the jocularity!

I believe she is filling out citizenship applications as we speak.

Well, at least San Marino, Lichtenstein, Monaco and Luxembourg are mostly for crazy millionaire eccentrics and will not allow permanentish immigration if you're not also a crazy millionaire eccentric. (well, except for maybe Luxembourg, which is a EU member).

If she wants to go to Sealand, I'll put in a good word for her with Prince Michael. My Ladyship's gotta be good for *something*. :D

I've often wondered why micronation buffs insist on needing dry land.

"We citizens of Pacificalia, both fish and human, hold dear to this thirty mile stretch of ocean floor. Our many human patriots will continue living abroad until the end of the wet season or possible improvements in deep sea living."

On the face of it, it's quite silly, but should we ever head into another ice age of any significance, there's plenty of ocean floor that would become islands and exist outside of the various 12-mile territorial waters of current land-nation borders.
