Father Buys 800-Square-Foot Piece of Land, Crowns Daughter Its Princess

So, parents, what have you done recently for your children?

Did you get your son Minecraft for his birthday? Gift your child with a puppy? Not bad.

But now consider this: According to The Washington Post, Virginia native Jeremiah Heaton recently researched the Internet in search of an unowned piece of land.

And he succeeded, coming across an 800-square-mile desert patch near the border of Egypt and Sudan.

Heaton subsequently obtained permission from Egyptian authorities to travel to the locale and was actually welcomed there by the local residents, who refers to the area as Bir Tawil.

Heaton then planted a blue flag that his kids designed on a rocky hill, called the desert patch the “Kingdom of North Sudan” and crowned hits seven-year old daughter, Emily, its Princess.

This is not a nickname. Emily Heaton is now an actual princess. At least more than most toddler.

"I wanted to show my kids I will literally go to the ends of the earth to make their wishes and dreams come true," Jeremiah told the newspaper.

Heaton (who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2012) is seeking approval from the African Union and is hoping that neighboring countries will allow him to officially make this region his very own nation.
