No idea if this make any sense, but would East Berlin count as USSR, creating a border with East Germany, and maybe West Germany?

Ridiculous suggestion, unless you wish to claim the French, British and American sectors of West Berlin as parts of France, Britain and the USA.

Technically, all of the countries that formed the USSR (except Russia) bordered it as they declared their independence before the USSR was dissolved (26.12.1991). Even if you'd like to count only countries which independence USSR has officially recognised, it would still be three more than there are now in the answers: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been recognised as independent by the Soviet government on 06.09.1991

there was not any official north korea before 1948 (3 years after ww2). so maybe accept both "north korea" and "korea" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Korea#Soviet_occupation_and_division_of_Korea_.281945.E2.80.9350.29

Korea wasn't unified at any point after the Second World War. The Japanese empire conquered Korea and when the empire was dissolved Korea was split between the USA and the USSR. It is arguable that at this stage neither North not South Korea were really countries yet, but they were occupied by two different countries and were certainly not one country.
