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

Having not taken this quiz, I assume that it will be "name the Asian borders of Russia".

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.
