If you are good at the land borders try out some quizzes with sea borders; top 10 Taiwanese cities and Indonesian cities by population. Click on my name and you'll be sure to find them

Sarcasm is impossible to detect in written form, unless you are familiar with the other person. For this reason it's not recommended to use it in the internet.

Indonesia actually does have land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia, though... maybe if he had said Australia and New Zealand the sarcasm would have been more easily detectable. Another joke laid waste by a poor sense of geography...

It's better to always just type Congo, because if the other Congo is on the quiz, then that will also be filled in.

So, why no Peru? The first search I came across said it had about 7,4K kms of land border.. I'm sure that might be a bit faulty.. but can't be that faulty it is less than those already on it?
