Chad Elwartowski and Supranee Thepdet lived for about two months in the cabin hailed as the “first seastead” by the group Ocean Builders. It was outside Territorial Limits but within the Exclusive Economic Zone of Thailand established by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. That gave the Thai government the right to regulate the establishment and use of artificial islands, installations and structures.

See:

  • Article 56 Rights, jurisdiction and duties of the coastal State in the exclusive economic zone on page 43.
  • Article 60 Artificial islands, installations and structures in the exclusive economic zone on page 45.

It is much easier for libertarian idiots to complain than to actually look up the relevant law.
