The use of "poor" to describe the level of GDP is wrong. It should be changed instead to "smaller", as it refers to the size of the economy, not to a country's wealth. Egypt and Poland for example have higher GDP than Greece and Portugal but on average most Egyptians and Poles are poorer than most Greeks and Portuguese.

I think it's measuring GDP per capita, otherwise small countries like Andorra or Malta would definitely rank even lower

Also I just noticed in the same ranking Luxembourg, Iceland and Finland have smaller PPP than Greece, not to mention as well the micro states.

Technically, the United Kingdom borders Spain as of Countries by Borders in 90 seconds, so Portugal would be the 5th most populous country which borders only one other country.
