Virginia Man “Establishes” Kingdom for Daughter

Jeremiah Heaton, a Virginia man, founded the “Kingdom of North Sudan” for his daughter Emily, on June 16, her seventh birthday. The man said in a recent interview with the Roanoke Times that he “wanted to show my kids I will literately go to the ends of the earth to make their wishes and dreams come true.” Heaton said he found the unclaimed territory Bir Tawil after searching for it online.
