Why don't Taiwan and Sealand officially recognise each other?

It may sound ridiculous in principle, the island of south east China and a sea platform in the North Sea officially recognising each other. But seeing as Taiwan wants to be recognised as the real China even though it is anything but, and Sealand just wanting to be recognised as a nation altogether; surely though regardless of how preposterous it may seem to recognise each other but yet by being recognised by another nation claiming to be a nation it would mean official recognition by both sides. Though admittedly there is no realistic reason why Taiwan would want it to be recognised by 100 extra people and that of Sealand ignoring the worlds largest country by population to recognise that of its capitalist brother doesn't make sense either, it would nonetheless help both countries in regard to individual recognition.

    What would be the point?

    Sealand would still be a pretend country, unrecognized by any world body.

    Or did you think that Sealand's right to exist were going to be protected by Taiwan? That Sealnd would somehow not be viewed as a haven for organized crime, money laundering, and crackpots?

    WTF would anyone care if some billionaire wants to pretend he has a country, let alone pretend with him so he can avoid paying taxes and launder money for criminals?

    A large number of countries recognise Taiwan. Nobody recognises Sealand.

    there's also the land between Sudan and Egypt that was unclaimed land, until a man claimed it and opened embassies around the world, sadly without any reply from the UN

    Sealand is a self claimed country, really it's just a platform.
