No, he means the island that the two bridges meet at (passport island, like he said...), which is half in Saudi Arabia and half in Bahrain. Small islands are obviously being counted (Indonesia and East Timor), so this should be included imo, even if the island is man-made

East Timor has a land border with Indonesia, whereas Indonesia as a whole is a bunch of islands.

It definetly is not a land border (Island of Timor), but Timor is not a small Island, compared to Passport Island, which is the only "Border" between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia

It IS a land border, because the island of Timor is split between the nation of East Timor and Indonesia.

Great quiz, 100% on first try - Rwanda nearly got me though, and I kept morosely typing in Singapore before remembering it's an island. Clearly I was too out of it with food poisoning to notice...

"the largest difference in area", to me, is to subtract the smaller area from the bigger area and check the result.
