Is there any land on earth that is not claimed by a country?

A massive chunk of the Antarctic
 
A massive chunk of the Antarctic – where the climate is colder than some parts of Mars – is the last unclaimed place on Earth. No-one seems to want it: It is neither strategically located nor rich in attainable resources. Wildly inhospitable, it is inaccessible due to raging icy seas.<P>Traditional methods of claiming land include declaring it for your country then defending it against others – including natives. Another accepted method to solidify a claim has been to issue stamps from the territory. Simply planting your flag, the way US astronauts did on the moon in 1969, isn\'t enough. </P><P>There have been, and still are, many pieces of land claimed by two countries. Think of the Gaza strip, Falkland Islands, Kashmir and parts of the former Soviet Union, where 65 territorial disputes arose during 1990 to 1991 alone. </P>
