How Is It Possible For A Country To Exist Without No Terriotry?
We do have claimed territory in Antartica which was claimed in 1937 by the Sovereign Prince's Grandfather, however Norway claimed the land along with the rest of the northern territory a few years later. We still strongly believe that the land claimed in 1937 belongs to Scotia.

Although we do not have a physical presence on that land, other states exist also without land. Vatican City for example possesses only a few aches of land and has a mere handful of citizens, whilst the Sovereign Military Order of Malta has existed as a state without territory since its expulsion from the island of Malta nearly two centuries ago. Both of the forementioned are widely recognised by UN Member States, including the United States.
