Maybe say "Country where Lake Victoria drains into the Nile" because the Nile is also considered to flow into Lake Victoria in Tanzania. Other sources, though, state that Lake Victoria itself is the source of the Nile.

The Nile flows north because of the high elevation near the south of the nile, so it has no way of getting over them if the river goes south. It empties into the Mediterranean Sea.

It would be better to say 4,300 km long and 350 km wide. "Tall" refers to height, and I think Everest is less than 9 km tall.

Agree, I was thinking of small countries that had the tallest mountains.

Even though I agree that "tall" is not appropriate, I think it is obvious that no moutains are 4300km high...

Yes, the clue is giving the country's length & width, while the word "tall" indicates height. And despite 73% getting it right, the description is still mighty awkward.

Absolutely! - I doubt that "Tall" is ever used to describe a country's length.

If you wanted to be a pedant, there are places in the north east of Algeria where Tunisia and the Mediterranean are inbetween Algeria and Egypt - no Libya.

We do want to be pedant :D

Yeah, the question could be phrased "Borders both Algeria and Libya".

I thought the statue of Niyazov has been completely demolished but after googling I found out that it has been moved to a suburb from Ashgabat and the statue doesn't rotates anymore.
