What happens when both Egypt and Sudan refuse to acknowledge a small area of the Sahara Desert as their own territory?

A Virginia man who has serious issues with telling his children "No" travels there, stakes a claim to it, and declares it a kingdom - all so his daughter could realize her dream of being a "real" princess.

The area in question is Bir Tawil, which Egypt and Sudan both insist belongs to the other due to boundary ambiguities stemming from the period when Sudan was a colony jointly administered by the United Kingdom and the British-influenced Kingdom of Egypt.

As far as the Heaton Family of Virginia is concerned, Bir Tawil is now the Kingdom of North Sudan, and family patriarch King Jeremiah has declared his intent to pursue official recognition from Egypt, Sudan and the African Union.

Jeremiah Heaton's delusions of grandeur are nothing new - he has previously attempted to run for the US House in Virginia as an independent and as a Democratic candidate.

It's always nice to see white people claim distant lands.

To be fair, the area in question is uninhabited so it's not like there are any natives to oppress, and the locals don't seem particularly interested in doing anything with the place.
