Really fun! Easy enough since most countries are in alphabetical order for some reason. 🤔

"most countries are in alphabetical order" - lol just reading that hurt my brain.

I should explain, ha ha. Most of the countries I used to mix up seem to run west to east or north to south in alphabetical order. It works for many confusable countries, like Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania or Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

Suriname is pretty easy to remember because the Guyanas (the Republic and the French region) do not share a border, thanks to it

I think you could add Armenia/Azerbaijan/Georgia to this. Not sure if the data supports it but I would suspect it’s an area of confusion.

Indeed. I think Armenia/Georgia is the only combination that may have tripped me up.

Or Dominica/Dominican Republic.

Eh, in name maybe, but in geography, Dominica and the Dominican Republic would be extremely hard to mix up. They're both islands and do not border each other. DR is much larger and is on the island of Hispaniola. Dominica is a small island in the Lesser Antilles.

Although, that does bring up a good point: maybe add the Lesser Antilles island countries to this quiz?

Cool idea. Could do a really difficult one of these with the Caribbean and Pacific island nations. Mauritius and the Seychelles too.

I always remember the -stan countries (excluding Pakistan and Afghanistan) as alphabetical in a clockwise order. I start with Kazakhstan, then Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, (skip over Pakistan and Afghanistan) Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan!

"Your eSwatini is not waterproof. If your eSwatini gets damaged, fill out a report and an e-SwaTechnichian will be over to fix your eSwatini right away. eSwatinis can cause electrocution if not properly handled. Be sure to read your eSwatini's instruction manual before use."

These can help you:

Rw[anda] borders rhyming Ug[anda]

North to South, K-U-T, Turkmenistan is the last, you see?

[Kos]ovo is not [coas]tal

[T]ogo is [t]iniest

[O]man is [over]

[B]olivia is [b]igger

[G]uyana is [g]reater

There's a lot [m]ore [M]yanmar

NoToSou is EsLaLi [Estonia, Lativa, Lithuania]

Lesotho/Eswatini is pretty easy. Lesotho is completely surrounded by South Africa. If it helps, though, remember that Lesotho is further south with "LeSoutho".

I couldn't think of anything for Haiti-DR. Reply if you think of one!

Suriname / Guyana used to trip me up.

Then Venezuela decided to try to annex most of Guyana.

Sadly, now its easy.
