Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, the UAE, Oman, Yemen... and really it also borders Bahrain.. you can enter via the King Fahd Causeway. There is a small island in the middle where there is Saudi customs on one side and Bahraini on the other. It should count. And they would also have a border with Israel except that the Saudis gave up a small strip of land south of the Negev to Jordan, both so that Jordan would have a route to the Red Sea and also because Saudi Arabia did not want to have a border with Israel. They believe Israelis have cooties.

I think I commented somewhere (can't find the quiz now) that after searching I found that the island with customs was entirely within the territory of either Saudi or Bahrain. Today I saw a map that contradicts this. On that one, the border passes through the island where customs is, with Saudi territory on one said and Bahraini on the other. Not sure which map to trust, but if the latter is right then Saudi Arabia and Bahrain do in fact share a land border.

It looks like it goes through the island to me. I didn't see a map with a border marked, but each country has their own passport control office and Mosque on their respective sides. They also have their own McDonald's (Bahrain has two).

Yea...the one Balkan country was Serbia, which was the heart of Yugoslavia before it broke up in the 90s. So, technically, Balkanization only yielded one answer for this border quiz. LOL

Fun facts about the Serbia's border with Kosovo, which Serbia still considers a province of Serbia: (1) if you agree with the Serb position, then Serbia still has 8 borders, because it would then also border Albania; (2) you can drive from Serbia into Kosovo no problem, but you can't go the other way, because the Serbs don't recognise the exit stamp from "Republic of Kosovo" since they say there is no such thing! You solve that by driving briefly through a 3rd country, like Montenegro, but don't be surprised of the Serb border guards look for the Kosovo exit stamp and cross it out!

India was on here before. It's not because of Sri Lanka. I think it's because the disputed Kashmir region is no longer administered by India. That eliminates the border with Afghanistan.
