Pacific Clipperton FIR doubt..!?

Hi all...until now i keep this doubt and would kindly request if anyone here could give me some light about it.
Not a pilot anymore due health issues, neither flown in Pacific, (only Europe & Africa), but as a true aviation lover i still love it, and i cant find the answer here, so i will kindly wait any explanation.

According this ICAO Doc from 2019 there is a portion of Pacific Ocean with a "Ghost FIR" non-atribbuted no anyone (Pages 6 & 10)


However according this aviation&intelligence services provider, ops.group, that portion of FIR at the same time belongs to Semi Independent Island Clipperton.


However if the island is uninhabited according Wiki, how do they manage to get a FIR, Control and even a CAA as per this:

DCA Clipperton: Home

Is this for real?
Who are behind the Clipperton CAA, ATC, FIR NPCX?
Where are the ATC'ers & CAA and physical buildings/installations?
Or is this a kind of Bogus stuff?

On their contacts the phone number starts with +951 wich Google says its South California.
DCA H.Q Building, Clipperton International Airport, Clipperton 11021, Clipperton +951 533015 +951 533016

However the phone numbers are the same as Myanmar CAA:

Phone +951 533015 Fax +951 533016 (coincidence maybe)?

My apologies but until now as far and more i search, more doubtful i become...
Should i put this in Pacific PPRuNe subforum?

Tanx in advance...JF
