Countries Bordering Countries of Different Size

Which countries have an area different to the ones of their neighbours? In this quiz 'different' means either 5 times bigger or 5 times smaller
In other words: all neighbours of a Country with area A have area greater than 5A or smaller than A/5
Answers are listed in alphabetical order
You are shown the number of bordered countries and the smallest ratio obtainable by dividing the two areas (the country's and the neighbour's)
Note that the ratio is always considered positive reguardless of whether the neighbour is larger or smaller!
Sri Lanka not included as the India-Sri Lanka border is a dubious one

Cool quiz - I thought you'd missed PNG/Indonesia, but I guess you'll be saving that for your Countries Which Are Almost But Not Quite 5 Times Bigger Than Its Neighbour.
