The boundary issue of the place is as a result of a border drawn up by the British in 1899. This didn't end here, he even urged people to apply for a citizenship.
Suyash Dixit reportedly found the area called Bir Tawil - meaning "deep well" in Arabic. It is not easy to reach the place as it is an global border.
The CEO of Softinator wrote on Facebook, "I, Suyash Dixit, first of my name and the protector of the realm, declare myself as the king of "Kingdom of Dixit".
"But, if your Bucket List ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying! We [had] three conditions; no photos of military areas, be back in a single day and no valuables", Dixit said, according to the report. He spent two nights planning his trip into the desert and convincing a local driver to bring him to the remote location.
After making it safely, Dixit planted a flag and seeds in the desert to establish his claim. He named himself King Suyash I, decided the capital city should be Suyashpur, and proclaimed the national animal to be a lizard, as it was the only species he saw around, the report added.
He added, "The dawn of our nation begins as a blank slate in an arid, desolate desert". This has led to several adventurers and explorers staking ownership of it, although global recognition for such claims has not been forthcoming."While in Cairo, I made a decision to travel to the place. Time to write an email to United Nations".
Well, Dixit is not the first person to claim the land. Earlier in 2014, an American had travelled to the desert land to make his daughter a princess of the "Kingdom of North Sudan". It is not clear that he has pursued his claim of ownership or otherwise continued his involvement in the tract of land.
"Under worldwide law, only states can assert sovereignty over territory", Anthony Arend, co-founder of the Institute for global Law and Politics at Georgetown University, told The Washington Post in 2014.
