Interesting how by using the "geographical centres" method you can end up with a "closest country" that doesn't border it! For example, Lesotho is considered closer to Swaziland than either of its neighbours South Africa or Mozambique; Tunisia and Libya are both "closer" to Malta than each other, and Morocco isn't "closest" to its neighbours either.
