>Also when they go completely under they should lose country status and become a company.

There is precedent for a county continuing without territory. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta is still around.

Also unlikely they lose every inch of land. Even if they have to go the Sealand route. The martine claims have value.

Doesn't work that way

The sovereign order of the knights of malta is a real thing that exists.

They have diplomatic relations issue passports ect ect.

Sure, but they own zero territory

The OP was talking about tuvalu still having maritime territory without land

The knights of malta don't control the coasts of malta

They only need to keep a token population in place to keep the maritime claim alive. A thing the knights could not do.

So long as someone lives there permanently it counts as an island. They don't need their 11k people in place.
