Suyash Dixit, who is from Indore, saw one land which falls between Egypt and Sudan and which no country has a proprietary right on that particular land.

However, the border was deemed unrepresentative of tribal use of the area and a new one was drawn in 1902, giving Sudan control of Hala'ib and switching control of Bir Tawil to Egypt.

"The route that I took is under Egyptian military (it is an global border) and is an area of terrorists so military have "shoot at sight" orders", Dixit said on Facebook, the Telegraph reported Tuesday.

Describing the place, Suyash said that he traveled 319 kms (to and fro) in a far off desert to claim this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil. He claimed as the ruler of the 2,000 sq km area of land between Egypt and Sudan. The explorer drove for six hours and plant a flag in the desert and establish the "Kingdom of Dixit". "But if your bucket list ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying". What is more, his online petition to the United Nations seeking recognition of his claim has found 800 supporters, and counting.Dixit, CEO of a tech firm, was travelling to Cairo for a software developers' conference at the beginning of November when he read about Bir Tawil, a large stretch of territory between the two countries.

On his Facebook post, Suyash Dixit wrote " I Suyash Dixit declaring myself as the king of "Kingdom of Dixit". "I pledge to continue to work for the prosperity of my people of the country and this motherland", he wrote in his Facebook post.


He also added that Bir Tawil is open for foreign investment and people can apply for nationality.

The name of the capital of this country is Suyashpur.

After making the announcement of "Kingdom of Dikshit", Suyash has made his father Prime Minister, President and Military Head. "I have added a seed and poured some water on it today".

Legally, a person can not claim land out of his will. In 2011, Jack Shenker of The Guardian also planted a flag in the region to claim control, followed three years later by American Jeremiah Heaton, who declared his rule "to fulfil a promise to his seven-year-old daughter that she could be a princess", writes the Daily Telegraph.
