NOTES

ATAllodial title claim (claims owned by the nation/micronation, independent of any superior landlord).
LTLand tenure claim (claims are recognised to a superior landlord which is not the protector/user nation or micronation, but the land can still be used for the purpose of environmental protection or rehabilitation, benign or nonexploitive use, or for the purpose of non-destructive scientific research, and this would allow the nation or micronation to fulfill its protectorate function, or benign user function towards the island and/or land claim).
GPGPTGreat Pacific Garbage Patch Treaty (claim recognised on 7 January 2011).
MOGPTMulti-Oceanic Garbage Patch Treaty (claim recognised on 23 June 2011).
SDTSpace Debris Treaty (claim recognised on 26 June 2011).
OEASOrganization of Emerging African States (Geyser Reef claim recognised on 14 September 2011; other claims recognised on 5 May 2012).
CTTCyberterra Treaty (claim recognised since 30 March 2012).
AATSAnti-Antarctic Treaty System (claim recognised on 9 October 2012).
Africa* — formerly Antarctica, but currently claimed by Africa.
N.B.Adélie Land (which the UMMOA has renamed Terra Firma or Terra Fabiana) is Antarctic territory that is claimed by France as one of five districts of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. However, not all nations have given this claim diplomatic recognition. France's sovereignty is not recognised internationally over this claim. So outside of the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) rationale, Adélie Land is actually just another disputed claim. It should also be noted that ATS claims do not signify de jure recognition. These are all de facto claims, so the Antarctic Treaty does not enjoy the status of customary international law. It should also be noted that customary international law is based on a theory of State consent, and if a State consistently objects to a rule of customary international law, it will not be bound by it. The UMMOA does not accept Antarctic Treaty claims, and would be free to do so even if the Antarctic Treaty were a rule of customary international law, which it is not.


COMMENTS

    1. North Pacific Gyre (Great Pacific Garbage Patch or GPGP, actually made up of two large masses of ever-accumulating trash known as the Western and Eastern Pacific Garbage Patches)
    2. North Atlantic Gyre (North Atlantic Garbage Patch or Sargasso Sea)
    3. Indian Ocean Gyre (Indian Ocean Garbage Patch).
It is also possible that there are trash islands in the other two major gyres, the South Pacific Gyre and the South Atlantic Gyre. There are also three other minor gyres: the Beaufort Gyre (Arctic Ocean), and the Ross and Weddell Gyre (Southern Ocean gyres).
