1. Maunsell Sea Forts, UK
These small steel platforms were built along the east coast of England during WWII. They were used as armed lookout towers, but were abandoned in the 1950s. Some were later used as the base for pirate radio stations. One fort off the coast of Suffolk was declared the Principality of Sealand by the Bates family in 1967. It’s not officially recognized as a sovereign state, but you can purchase a Lord, Baron or Count title from there if you’d like.
