Not anymore :).
But seriously, Mongolia comes that early on in the list because it is in between two superpowers that are a) really large, and b) really well known. Mongolia turns green whenever either Russia or China are guessed, which appears to be 95% of the time.

I start with Indonesia, North Korea, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the DRC. For South America, all you need to type in is Brazil and Peru. Honduras gets a lot of Latin America, than USA and Mexico. Then just choose countries located a short distance from each other in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Typing "Congo" gets you 12 countries, because it gives all countries that border either of the Congos! The only problem is that you have to type in "Equatorial Guinea" because no countries are left that border it, which is a bit cumbersome.

this is a fantastic idea and a very entertaining quiz, thank you! May I just have one very nitpicking comment? In the instructions, it should not say that states "without borders" are not included - every state by definition must have borders, otherwise it would not be a state. It should say "states not sharing land borders with any other state". Natural borders and sea borders are still borders (: Thank you!

That is horrible. The time is so tight that a single typo and you are snookered. The number of times I looked at it and i had a list of 5 or 6 countries all typed as one word with a single typo in the first one, was unreal. Frustrating would be a massive understatement.

Lots of fun! For beginners on this quiz: An example of strategy is that only three countries work for Liechtenstein--Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland. Of those three, Austria is by far the shortest and therefore fastest to type. Also, Tajikistan helps because of all the countries it borders. And Italy and Laos not just for the ones they border, but they are nice and short.

It is actually considered a land border to India! This is because at times during low tide, you can walk straight from India to Sri Lanka, which means it's not an island at all times, so it is technically a land border to Indi! I know, cool, right?!

In the netherlands at low tide you can walk to the wadden islands, but noone would ever say they are connected to the mainland.

Can you find me an authorative source that states that sri lanka is not an island? Cause all I keep finding is that it is an island nation, which is seperated from india. (And that it was centuries ago that that landbridge was passable by foot. I am not sure if tides were taken into account, but you would think there would ve been mentions of it. Maybe if people have passed it, they didnt mind wading a bit?)

I am not entirely sure what the story is, but from what I understood Sri Lanka is of course an island country. The hypothetical border is on a small island (between continental India and the main Sri Lanka island) that is shared by the two countries and only appears during low tide.

If you search for if you can walk across, the answer consistently is NO, not since the 15th century (1480). Though a few bits of Adam's bridge/Rama setu are above water most of it isnt, and can be up to 10 meters below the surface.
