Very challenging, good time setting, I think.
My scores were 146, 142, 155, 156, 156, 155, and then FINALLY I got gambia and liechtenstein immediately to get 157.
Speaking of, Bahrain really ought to be on this quiz.
Europe is a bit tricky . So i start with austria coz it borders leichenstein then slovenia slovakia and serbia, italy (vatican and san marino) france (monaco) UK SPAIN sweden/
Malaysia (Brunei and Singapore)
Indonesia (Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea)
India (Sri Lanka)
Italy (San Marino, Vatican City)
Gabon (Equatorial Guinea)
Haiti (Dominican Republic)
Saudi Arabia (Qatar, UAE, Yemen, Oman, Kuwait)
For South America, simply Brazil and Peru will cover that continent.
Hope this helps
And for the African countries it can save one or two country names if for Gambia you use Senegal and for Equatorial Guinea you use Cameroon. Even though they look like longer names at first.
usa, Belize, haiti, honduras, panama, Brazil, peru for Americas
russia, Sweden, germany, france, uk, spain, italy, austria, serbia, greece. moldova for Europe
saudi arabia, israel, iran, kyrgystan, india, laos, china, South Korea, indonesia, Malaysia for Asia
South Africa, Congo, Ethiopia, Malawi, Libya, Liberia, Senegal and few others for Africa

After a while of trying, I finally was able to get to a point where I had 30 seconds left to see what 2 countries I was missing.. Liechtenstein and Brunei, screw off! lol.
And I finally have the Border Badge!
i think that's it
134/157 = 85%
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?)
Brazil/ Peru/ USA/ Guatemala/ Haiti/ Costa Rica/ South Africa/ Malawi/ Congo/ Gabon/ Chad/ Ethiopia/ Algeria/ Burkina Faso/ Senegal/ Liberia/ Saudi Arabia/ Lebanon/ Turkey/ China/ Afghanistan/ India/ Cambodia/ Indonesia/ South korea/ Russia/ Sweden/ UK/ Spain/ Italy/ France/ Germany/ Romania/ Croatia/ Albania/ Greece
Hope it helps :)

might not make people happy but I think this calls for a reset, cause people will get the badge without effort.

russia china india indonesia thailand iran southkorea sweden germany france spain italy romania hungary austria greece bosnia serbia uk ALL YOU NEED ENJOY
I had a 156/157 score 4 seconds before the end. I was not able to make out which country I had not typed. I paused the quiz and started thinking... I started thinking of really small countries. Suddenly I remembered I had not typed neither of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I knew it was Liechtnstein but I only had 1 second left! I got to another tab, typed the word Liechtenstein, copied it and when I resumed my quiz, I immediately pressed Control+V to paste the word... and it worked! I got a 157/157!
Got it with planning and 5 secs left. Probbaly much faster ways but I go Americas - Africa - Europe - Asia
Asia - north korea, china, india, russia, uzbekistan, iran, saudi arabia, syria, laos, malaysia, indonesia
South America - brazil, peru
North America - guatemala, canada, costa rica, haiti
Africa - senegalm guinea, burkina faso, algeria, chad, egypt, ethiopia, congo, zambia, south africa, gabon
Europe - (russia), sweden, uk, ukraine, greece, serbia, austria, italy, germany, france, spain
I am pretty proud...
There's bound to be a faster one, has anyone found it?
With this I got it in 38 seconds.
not in this order but I think i got it by typing these countries:
germany finland russia china india laos indonesia brunei gabon gambia luxembourg serbia greece turkey saudi arabia mali malawi south africa vatican monaco brazil peru honduras mexico panama haiti guinea romania albania serbia austria sanmarino lebanon
USA Brazil Peru Guatemala CostaRica UK France Spain Italy Germany Russia Sweden ROK India Indonesia Laos Brunei Iraq UAE Oman Guinea Libya Togo Senegal Syria SouthAfrica Cameroon DC!R Austria Ethiopia Malawi Serbia Romania FYROM Iran Tajistan [sic] (207 keystrokes).
Here ! signifies pressing the left key to get DRC at the same time as getting DR for the first time.
I was surprised that Qatar borders the UAE - where does this happen? It also surprises me that even though PRC for China is only 3 letters, there is no optimal solution that uses it.
Hope this helped,
