For all top-level domains you can register a domain and not have any

"no nameservers".
Not correct, registrar and registry agreements require at least two
name servers.
Any registry that supports RRP (Verisign Registry, PIR) or even slightly old drafts of EPP must allow domains to be registered with no host objects, since there is no other way to allow domains with subordinate nameservers to be created in the registry (the required procedure is create-domain-with-no-nameservers, create-subordinate-hosts, add-nameservers-to-domain). Domains with no nameservers can't appear in the corresponding registry zone, since no delegation is possible.

Note this is registry functionality made available to registrars, and does not necessarily imply functionality available to registrants.
