    Give the guy some credit though, he found unclaimed land and claimed it.
    Does that mean the US owns the moon?

    So what will the legal system be like? Will it be based on common law?

    And more importantly, what will he tell his daughter when no one recognizes his country?

    Immediately worried about controlling people's behavior eh?

    No worries, unless he walls it in and hires a military, he cant force anyone to live there.

    You should have done it....seen if anyone would voluntarily live under your Catholic Confessional System or whatever it's called. If it's so great, maybe they'd put up with an uninhabited desert to be be among their own kind. Seems to be working for the Jews (well, a few hiccups of course).

    IMO this guy will be killed as soon as Islamic fundies catch on.

    Depending how you claim things, maybe....I think the USSR landed a robot on the moon before the manned lunar landings? Not sure, I would need to check...

    Why Dads are awesome. Whatever my ex says.
    Fast forward thirty years. Emily Heaton is holding a half bottle of gin, visibly drunk and crying, and screaming toward the front door of her father's home. "You said I was a princess, daddy! You said I could have it all! Why did you lie to me, daddy? WHY???!!"

    Basically, Sudan says the border is a river. Egypt says it's a straight line.
    Until they find out an American claimed it. This is how WWIII begins.

    Controlling people's behavior is essential to running a country. Literally, laws are a necessary feature of government.

    In any case, there's exactly zero chance that anyone in the region will recognize his country, so my post wasn't really serious.

    FRom the article:
    Sheila Carapico, professor of political science and international studies at the University of Richmond, told the Bristol Herald Courier last week that Heaton would need legal recognition from neighboring countries, the United Nations or other groups to have actual political control of the land.
    I know the UN fancies itself the world's mommy, but a country does not need their permission to exist.

    Anyway, I say good for him... now go home, tell your princess she's a Princess, and move on with your life.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
