      Suyash Dixit from Indore in Madhya Pradesh has declared himself the ruler of an unclaimed 2,000 sq km area of a land between Egypt and Sudan. This didn't end here, he even urged people to apply for a citizenship.

      Meet Suyash Dixit, the king of land

      "I, Suyash Dixit, first of my name and the protector of the realm, declare myself as the king of "Kingdom of Dixit". I call myself, King Suyash First from today. I declare this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil as my country from now to the eternity of time," the CEO at Softinator wrote on Facebook.

      Dixit has also filed an online petition to the United Nations asking for recognition of his claim and interestingly, more than 800 people have supported the petition.

      Dixit learnt about this unclaimed land, Bir Tawil when he was travelling for a conference in Cairo. The area hasn't been inhabited by anyone since 1902 because of a complicated colonial-era border demarcation history and its arid conditions.

      However, this isn't the first time. Earlier in 2014, an American had travelled to the desert land to make his daughter a princess of the 'Kingdom of North Sudan'.
