I was going to do an an obituary on that, as a matter of fact. A great story, with a sad end. It was devastated by a fire not long ago, and the cost to repair is too much for a small, idealistic nation.

There are many micronations, but this was one of the few that tried to make a diffence. Its internet hosting service offered through Haven co. Regulating under Sealand jurisdiction, it offered a global alternative to free speech and copyright issues, as it had no regulations regarding patents or political speech. The only thing clearly banned was child pornography and spam. A voice to dissidents of Nepal and german copyfighters alike, all while being indirectly protected by the surrounding kingdom of Britain.

Wow. I guess when they say it's a small country they're not kidding.
