  • Status is not correct "The first part is right ("no permanent human population") but, for the most part, not the second part ("no government"). Only Marie Byrd Land has no government (because no country has claimed it), but the rest of Antarctica is claimed and each of the claimants applies a suite of laws to its claimed territory (for two examples, see the discussion of [1] British Antarctic Territory and [2] Peter I Island and Queen Maud Land in Report 102 in "Equal Human Rights and Civil Rights for All Persons, No Matter Their Gender, No Matter Their Sexual Orientation: An Interpretive Newsletter" (www.humciv.com)>"
