Sealand Shines on the Global Stage
Our memorable feature on 60 Minutes was not just one of the most important media highlight – it was a proud declaration of Sealand’s unique status as the world's smallest independent country. When Prince Michael first glimpsed our proud nation on the horizon, it wasn't just a simple sighting; it was the revelation of our enduring spirit of independence and the resilience of the smallest country in the world.
An Entrance Like No Other
The 60 Minutes crew’s first steps onto Sealand were through our iconic "swing", suspended 60 feet above the churning North Sea. This uncommon and unique entry is more than just an access point; it's a bold symbol of our sovereignty and independence. Witnessing their mixture of intrigue and awe as they ascended to our fortress was a moment of amusement and pride for us.

Sharing these stories, especially our commitment to religious freedom, and the humorous anecdotes of our two-day jail policy, was a highlight, portraying the unique character of our country.
