Antarctic Treaty of 1959

From lawbrain.com

According to this treaty, Dec. 1, 1959, 12 U.S. T. 794, 402 U.N.T.S. 71. Antarctica—the land adjacent to the South Pole—is considered "international" territory, like that of the high seas; it is not under the jurisdiction of any single nation. Its legal status, therefore, is governed by International Law.
