How it started everything
Maybe you don’t know but all the planets in the solar system (earth escaped) are property of one single man, Mr. Dennis Hope. All begin when the UK, US and USSR signed a treaty in 1967: United Nations Outer Space Treaty , that claimed no state has the right to claim any land or space outside the earth.
Consequently, the American Dennis Hope understood that this did not prohibit to private individuals and companies from owning extra-terrestrial land. So, he registered all the planets and satellites in the solar system as his own, except the Earth.
According to the American legislature you can register anything as yours. This as long as it’s not someone else’s.
Further, he creates the website where you can buy from the following planets: Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus and in it’s entirety, Pluto.
Then he wrote to the UN (United Nations) and other country, that he was going to carve up and sell the planets (and satellites) in the solar system and if they had something have something against it. Then, no one answered him, so according to the “law” who is silent allows, he goes on. Certainly, we know he wrote this letters, besides the fact that it may not have even done but we can only vaguely imagine the enormity of letters that the ON and other country will receive every day.

The territory have too a modest price, about $25 for acre!
To sum up, this man find a legal shortcut and now he is making a lot of money.
The Moon Treaty
One thing that makes this girder less legal is the Treaty of the Moon. An agreement that sets laws for all celestial bodies including the impossible for a private or an organization (except for international and governmental ones) to own any type of extraterrestrial property. However, this treaty is considerably weakened since many of the main aerospace powers have not ratified it but perhaps only signed it as France.
The curious happen in 2004, after he puts under his ownership all the planets and satellites of the solar system. Because It has established its independence by formulating a new state: the Galactic Government.
“Democratic republic that represents extraterrestrial landowners with a ratified constitution, a congress, unit of currency and even its own patent office” (the same words from their site). Click here to find the document!
They have too a flag:
According to what is written on their site, they would have sold about 611 million acres on the Moon and other properties on Mars, Venus, Mercury and IO but without giving a specific number for them.
Who buys this stuff?
According to their website, they would have sold these acres to three former president: George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan” and over 675 well-known celebrities”
