Here is an interesting factoid for the conspiracy minded. The PR guy for
MojoNation, Bill Scannell, also works for HavenCo, the people who operate
Sealand. This brings up the question of whether MojoNation is headquartered at

About The Principality of Sealand
Sealand was founded as a sovereign Principality in 1967 in international
waters, six miles off the eastern shores of Great Britain. The Principality
was originally known as Roughs Tower, an island fortress created in World
War II by Britain and subsequently abandoned to the jurisdiction of the
High Seas. The island fortress is conveniently situated from 65 to 100
miles from the coasts of France, Belgium, Holland and Germany.

birth to Sealand's national motto of E Mare Libertas, or "Freedom of the

The official language of Sealand is English and the Sealand Dollar has a
fixed exchange rate of one U.S. dollar. Passports and stamps have been in
circulation since 1969. Contrary to many misleading websites and news
articles, Sealand passports are not -nor have ever been- for sale. Anyone
offering a Sealand passport for sale is selling a forgery.
