    Is there any dry, habitable land left on the planet that has yet to be claimed by a nation?

    There are undeveloped parts of every country, just people haven't expanded in those areas yet.  I am sure every piece of land is claimed by some sort of government, unless it's tiny specs of islands that no one cares to develop on anyways.

    Not really. There are unclaimed parts that are circled on national maps as being "protected" but there's nothing left. We have officially outgrown our planet, but we'll argue about stewardship and private property vs. "human rights" etc., and in the frenzy of false binary, the idealist morons who ruin everything in their extremist idiocy will do what they always do, and the bombs will keep going off. Greed and stupidity will fuel dumb arguments that pit nonsense against nonsense, the hungry will point out how space research is a waste of money, and the wealthy will fortify and protect their children, unwilling to fund the visionary need to expand exploration very soon. Myopia will win the day and, just as it did with Greece, the few centuries of enlightenment will be trampled under by the stampede of uneducated, hungry, desperate people that the oligarchs (or your favorite term) refused to anticipate despite how endlessly history repeats itself. Enter the next age of fascism, anarchy or some other despotic something or dark age other. Blah blah. 200,000 years, we haven't learned anything yet.

    I think that there are quite a few islands that are not claimed by any country in particular. Mainly, these islands are completely uninhabitable due to a lack of drinking water and an adequate food supply. Additionally, it can be difficult to carry building supplies onto the land itself.

    Power enabled some European and Asian nations to colonize other lands and peoples whom they enslaved or exploited. Neocolonialism has taken the place of colonialism. No moral justification for either. read more

    Probably not.  But am sure there are some un-habitable island left that no one have claim yet. smile

    In my research all lands or Islands are claimed by a nation and in the unclaimed Islands of the Antarctica are ruled by the United Nations.

    So, one may rent an Island and docked a houseboat or get approval to build a temporary cabin with the approval of the Nation or United Nations that owns or rules the property.

    Well! I had never given this a thought. But may be Antarctica?
    Are you thinking from the point of view of other living beings that human species have snatched everything from them?
