Bordering Countries Whose Capitals Are Furthest Apart

As the crow flies, these are some tired crows. Name the countries that share a land border, but whose capitals are furthest away from each other.
Enter the COUNTRY not the capital
DOES count overseas regions and departments, maybe even ones in, cough, South America
But DOES NOT count overseas territories such as Hans Island

Great idea! Perhaps the capitals of Brazil and Venezuela ought to be farther apart than that of Brazil and Guyana.

Agree. I quickly checked it, and Caracass i much farther from Brasilia, than Georgetown is. ~3590km vs. 2750 km

Does UK-Cyprus not count because Akrotiri and Dhekelia are only territories and not constituent parts of the UK?

Now that Canada and Denmark have split Hans Island and created an approx 1 km land border, they can be added to this quiz.

I'll add a caveat about that. I won't include it because of Greenland's status as an autonomous overseas territory of Denmark.

The quiz caveats specifically exclude that example, but the Danish claim there is part of Greenland, not Denmark proper and external territories are usually excluded in Jetpunk quizzes, unless specified otherwise. Greenland neither being a sovereign country in its own right, nor an integral part of Denmark means it misses out a lot.

this is basicly the reason why. (taken from an other answear he wrote with the same question. The quiz caveats specifically exclude that example, but the Danish claim there is part of Greenland, not Denmark proper and external territories are usually excluded in Jetpunk quizzes, unless specified otherwise. Greenland neither being a sovereign country in its own right, nor an integral part of Denmark means it misses out a lot.

French Guiana is an integral part of France as much as anywhere in metropolitan France is. Excluding it here would be like excluding Hawaii and Alaska from the U.S.

Yes as @Geopro said, it does make sense. Additionally it is JetPunk standard to include France's overseas departments unless stated otherwise.
