    There are roads, but they are camel/goat roads. Im guessing the fact that both Sudan and Egypt dont want the area means there is not much potential in the region.

    If he is not paying taxes to either Sudan or Egypt, I say he is king until he gets dethroned. If any country comes in and dethrones him, then his kingdom has ended. Thus is the way of kingdoms, I would think.

    I have actually toyed with the idea of getting a title from this country:

    The Principality of Sealand - Become a Lord, Lady, Baron or Baroness

    I wonder if being dethroned means death from a roving band of islamist goat herders-in that region probably.

    He could live in exile in the US for free.
    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.

    This must be that 'nothing' I've heard so much ado about.

    Kinda a cool gesture. I hope he has enough family wealth that he has secured his daughters education before making her a princess.

    For what its worth...I bought my wife a star once. So...we have that going for us.

    Not really. It simply needs to be able to defend itself successfully, whether or not it is recognized is immaterial.
