Makes sense... Trivia fans know Lesotho because it's known primarily for being entirely enveloped by South Africa. Unless you live there, that's probably the only reason Lesotho ever comes up. The UK is known for much more than having only one land border.

Mar 10, 2016

+1
level 45
Mar 11, 2016
Then Denmark would be on this list, because they are conected to Sweden by a Bridge. So a bidge dosn't count, only soil (like sand, dirt and stone) counts.

Not just a causeway, I believe there's an island in the gulf that's half Saudi and half Bahraini

Jul 23, 2012
Singapore is an island people! This is a bit cheeky but The UK does actually share a land border with Cyprus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akrotiri_and_Dhekelia So in theory, Cyprus should be on the list and UK not.
+1
level 72
Dec 25, 2012
As a matter of fact, the UK (Gibraltar to be more precise) als borders with Spain, but I think this discussion already took place in another quiz.

In the directions it does not include overseas territories

It doesnt include overseas territories, and to be honest, if it did, wouldnt cyprus not count anyway? I mean, turkish cyprus is KINDA an overseas territory,right?
+2
level 26
Aug 4, 2012
Singapore rightfully not included. If you include bridges etc then UK borders France via Channel tunnel, Denmark borders Sweden via bridge and bahrain likewise
+1
level 34
Aug 28, 2012
Shouldn't Cyprus be on the list because of its border with North Cyprus (Turkey)?

@quizmaster I was just thinking.... what about Uruguay? It has a land border with Brazil only I think. I know it borders Argentina too but pretty sure the Rio Uruguay seperates them both and therefore they have no land border. Unless you still count rivers as land borders...

@ Fun Well if Hans Island is successfully split between Greenland(Denmark) and Canada like it may be(currently in dispute), then Canada will have a 2nd land border with Denmark. However that may be up to the Quizmaster as to whether that will count, since he doesn't count Akrotiri and Dhekelia with Cyprus I doubt he will count Greenland with Canada.

I drive across the King Fahd Causeway several times a week. There is an island in the middle identified on googlemaps as "Middle Island" and on Wikimapia as "passport island" where passport control and customs is. I can't find any information about this island anywhere, though, so I don't know if it is within the borders of Bahrain or Saudi Arabia or if it is half-owned by each country. If the latter, then the two countries actually do have a land border. I cross it frequently. It certainly seems that this is the case because on the Saudi side of the island the McDonald's there closes for prayer times same as in the KSA, and the McDonald's on the Bahrain side does not, following the rules of Bahrain.
+1
level 76
Mar 4, 2013
did more research... finally found a map with borders drawn in the water and it looks like "Middle Island" actually is within the borders of Saudi Arabia. But just barely.
+1
level 20
Jan 16, 2019
Oddly enough, Google Earth shows the exact opposite - Middle Island is just about on the Bahrain side

Great quiz! Interesting that there are just two "mutual" pairs, namely DomRep/Haiti and Ireland/UK. Perhaps there should be an adjective to describe such pairs - bicontiguous, maybe? I'll get my coat....
+1
level 52
Aug 20, 2016
If you think about it, in order for a mutual pair of countries with one border to exist, they must both either be on an island, and there are not many islands shared between two countries. (I can think of only five: Ireland, Hispaniola, Borneo, New Guinea, and Saint Martin.)

There are 144 ways to count this a1: No man made bodrer a2: Only visible above sea levels borders (The Oresund bridge would count Denmak out but the Johor–Singapore Causeway would add Singapre to the list and the King Fahd Causeway would add Bahrain to the list. Qatar out but Singapore and Bahrain in. In the future, the proposed Quatar-Bahrain bridge might kick both countries out of the list.) a3: Bridges and tunnels accepted as border. Kicks UK out of the list. b1: Overseas territories not taken into account. b2: Overseas territories counted as separate countries. As an example, this would add Gibraltar to the list. b3: Overseas territories counted as a part of the mother country. This makes Gibraltar a part of the UK, dropping them from the list. (Incorporated overseas areas of France an the Netherlands do not affect the list of countries bordering a single country, so we don't have to make a b4.) ... to be continued
