Indian declares himself as ’King’ of an unclaimed land

Indore: An Indian man declared himself the ruler of an unclaimed strip of land in North Africa and is encouraging people to apply for citizenship.

Suyash Dixit travelled to Bir Tawil, a strip of 800 square mile piece land between Egypt and Sudan which is not owned by any country.


Bir Tawil is the only place on Earth where humans can survive that is not a part of any state or country, with the boundary quirk occurring as a result of a border drawn up by the British in 1899.

He took to Facebook to notify everyone of his newly acquired land and the man came equipped with a flag too!

New Delhi: Suyash Dixit is the self-avowed ruler of a new piece of land in North Africa which no country owns. 

Dixit travelled to Bir Tawil, an 800 square mile no man’s land between Egypt and Sudan, and declared himself as the ’king’ of the territory.

Not just this, the Indian adventurer is asking interested parties to apply for citizenship.

"I, Suyash Dixit, first of my name and the protector of the realm, declare myself as the king of “Kingdom of Dixit”. I call myself, King Suyash First from today. I declare this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil as my country from now to the eternity of time," the CEO at Softinator wrote on Facebook.

The Indore resident further described the perilous journey he undertook to reach Bir Tawil.

“The route that I took is under Egyptian military (it is an international border) and is an area of terrorists so military have ’shoot at sight’ orders,” he explained.

“But, if your Bucket List ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying! You need permissions to even enter the route to this place."

“We [had] three conditions; no photos of military areas, be back in a single day and no valuables.”

The Indian planted a seed and flew a flag upon reaching the desert land to establish the ’Kingdom of Dixit’.

“Following the early civilisation ethics and rules, if you want to claim a land then you need to grow crops on it. I have added a seed and poured some water on it today. It is mine,” he declared.


Well, Dixit is not the first person to claim the land. In 2014, an American travelled to the desert land to make his daughter a princess of the ‘Kingdom of North Sudan’. However, law expert Anthony Arend previously told the Washington Post that under international law, only a state can claim sovereignty over a territory.
