Indian adventurer Suyash Dixit declared himself the ruler of a country proudly announcing on Facebook that he has claimed an unclaimed land and called it "Kingdom of Dixit". He claimed as the ruler of the 2,000 sq km area of land between Egypt and Sudan. He said "I would call myself King Suyash First from today". Suyash read about the unclaimed land, Bir Tawil when he was travelling to Cairo, Egypt. He also sowed some seeds and poured water into it. You need permissions to even enter the route to this place. Bir Tawil is the only place on Earth which is not a part of any state or country, but humans can survive and live. The route through which he travelled falls under Egyptian military and require permission as it is an worldwide border. "But if your bucket list ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying".

He undertook a journey from his hometown of Indore, India, to this region and declared himself as the "first king of Dixit".

"We got on 3 conditions, no photos of military areas (which is nearly everything), you be back in the single day and you do not carry valuables. I pledge to continue to work for the prosperity of my people of the country and this motherland", he wrote in his Facebook post.

In a freakish incident, an Indian adventurer has declared himself the ruler of an unclaimed strip of land in North Africa and is encouraging parties to apply for citizenship.

"We drove for six hours straight in the middle of the desert and barren lands and crossing one military base to the location". Also, his post includes about Suyog Dixit an acting prime minister of the land and the head of the Military.

"I am the king!"

While Bir Tawil is legally unclaimed territory, several people have attempted to colonize it over the years, including a Russian amateur radio enthusiast and an American man who wanted to make his daughter a real-life princess. This has led to several adventurers and explorers staking ownership of it, although worldwide recognition for such claims has not been forthcoming."While in Cairo, I chose to travel to the place. Time to write an email to United Nations". This gave Egypt control of the significant Red Sea port of Hala'ib and left the entirely empty Bir Tawil on the Sudanese side.
