After a long lasting conflict about land ownership with the Dutch government, Gerard Beukeveld declared his property which is in the North of Holland on the border with Germany a sovereign free state. It was first named Beukeveld and later renamed to Eurostaete. Part of the property is a filled in ditch which forms a no man’s land, claimed by neither the Dutch nor the German government. Eurostaete has a flag, a currency and has plans to open a casino. It claims to have zero inhabitants, but 6 billion ‘outhabitants’ who all should respect the most important rule of it's constitution: ‘Everyone is and remains equal’.
