Shouldn't Serbia be here? It borders 8 and is within 200 km of Albania and Greece. Might even be within 200 km of Slovenia and Slovakia.

Maybe Serbia wasn't counted because every single one of their neighbors hate them. Not very neighborly. Of course that can also be said of Turkey... unless you count Northern Cyprus. And almost of Russia, possibly excluding Belarus and maybe China or North Korea.

And not all Turkey's neighbors hate them, by Middle Eastern standards anyways. Israel on the other hand...

I've spent considerable time in Romania... was even living there briefly... and that's not the impression I got. Though it's probably safe to say Romanians dislike Serbs much less than Kosovars or Bosnians do, sure. But hey, it's the Balkans, right?

"by Middle Eastern standards?" haha... yeah Turkey is between the Balkans and the Middle East... and... not at all coincidentally both regions are so troubled and full of strife. So much of all the problems in the region stem from the Ottoman legacy, including the issue of Israel/Palestine. But... who would you say doesn't hate Turkey? Georgia? Maybe. Though all the former Soviet/CIS residents I knew had this impression of Turks as lecherous perverts and sex tourists, including the girls in Batumi. Alawite Syria not really a fan of Turkey's current Islamist government, and traditionally they squabbled over how to deal with Israel. Iraq/Kurdistan/Da'esh constantly sending terrorists in to Turkey. Shia Iran and Sunni Turkey not the best of friends. Bulgarians talk only about centuries of Ottoman rape. Greeks hate Turks almost as much as they hate Macedonians. Armenia of course is still upset about that little unrecognized genocide.
Maybe if you count that little Azerbaijani exclave?

Great! How did you work out the data? What about a version of closest to most NON-BORDERING countries within 200 km?

Thanks! We used the Distance Calculator on daftlogic.com. As for the version excluding neighbors, you can feel free to make it. We are already taking care of 100 and 500 kilometer versions.

Nice quiz! I just did a re-measure to Italy's 18th country, Macedonia, but I still come up with 204 km. Maybe the clue for that one should be 17?

Also, I think Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Croatia, would both qualify for this list.

You're a big help, thanks! Do you have an Excel table of all of the distances? You do have many proximity quizzes already so the idea isn't hard to put together if not!

Nope, I just used my head. Over and out from Country 11, and a nice evening at both a pop music festival on Danube Island and classical music at Musikverein - Mozart and Rainhard Fendrich, Austria's biggest stars of the 18th and 20th century, all in one evening!

Be Interesting to see what peoples' approach to this was? I just thought of those countries with the most borders, and then those in pockets of lots of smaller countries

I just went for large countries surrounded by countries and then smaller countries among lots of smaller countries, still missed Saudi Arabia and Bulgaria.

7 countries touch Mali. Then you have Benin, Togo, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau and The Gambia which are nearby. The Gambia and Guinea-Bissau might be within 200km but I think the others are too far away.

Its 7 borders are actually the only ones! Benin, Togo, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau, and the Gambia are all just barely too far away, some only 20 km from the cut.

Anyone notice how most of these countries are European? Only China, Iran, Congo and Brazil aren't. That is counting that Turkey is included in Europe.

Granted, Europe has a lot of small countries. That might help.
