COUNTRIES WHICH BORDER ONLY ONE OTHER COUNTRY
Only 17 (independent) nations only border one other nation. Most are
small, but yet the world's second largest nation is the glaring
exception. Except for the 3 enclaves (Lesotho, San Marino, Italy),
all have a coastline (required if a country only has one land border
and is not an enclave). Salt water boundaries (like the straits
between Singapore and Malaysia or Denmark and Sweden, even with a
connecting bridge) do not count. The countries below are listed
in order of their land area.
1. Canada (United States)
2. Papua New Guinea (Indonesia)
3. United Kingdom (Ireland)
4. South Korea (North Korea)
5. Portugal (Spain)
6. Ireland (United Kingdom)
7. Dominican Republic (Haiti)
8. Denmark (Germany)
9. Lesotho (South Africa)
10. Haiti (Dominican Republic)
11. East Timor (Indonesia)
12. Qatar (Saudi Arabia)
13. The Gambia (Senegal)
14. Brunei (Malaysia)
15. San Marino (Italy)
16. Monaco (France)
17. Vatican City (Italy)
(Bordering countries are listed in parentheses.)
