1 Smallest Countrie : The World's Smallest Countries

World's Smallest 'Country' for Sale

The self-proclaimed sovereign principality of Sealand, aboard an artillery platform built during World War II, as seen in 1999.
Enter Paddy Roy Bates, who along with his family, occupied the structure in 1967 and proclaimed its sovereign principality, dubbing himself and his wife prince and princess of the island.

That sovereignty claim lead to a decade's long struggle for control with the United Kingdom that included a lawsuit and the jury-rigging of international water boundaries.

Skateboarding the World's Smallest Country: Red Bull All Access

Until now no outsiders has been granted free access to the worlds smallest nation, Sealand. Occupied in 1967 by Sir Roy Paddy Bates and became a constitutional principality, the platform is completely a legitimate nation boasting its own Sealand flag, Sealand national anthem, Sealand stamps and Sealand currency.

Although only two crew members and one skateboard was lost during the group's extent on Sealand, we can all agree that skateboarding an old WWII platform was pretty sketch.
The World's Smallest Countries

This is a comprehensive listing of the world's seventeen independent smallest countries, from smallest to largest. They each contain less than 200 square miles in area. If we combined the land area of these 17 countries, we would have a country just a bit larger than the state Rhode Island. Even tiny Singapore is too big for this list (it's 246 square miles)!

1- Vatican City - 0.2 square miles - The world's smallest state, the Vatican has a population of 770, none of whom are permanent residents. The tiny country which surrounds St. Peter's Basilica is the spiritual center for the world's Roman Catholics (over 1 billion strong). Also known as the Holy See, Vatican City is surrounded by Rome, Italy
