Antarctica is the southernmost continent of Earth as well as the only continent on Earth that has large areas of land that are not actively claimed by any major government. Several micronational territorial claims are present on the continent, although some of them are recognized only by their respective claimants. Because of this, Antarctica has been a "hot spot" for self-declared sovereign states and secessionist movements.
