Countries of the World by Perimeter Length (With Map)

Can you name the countries of the world in order by the total length of their perimeter (land borders and coastline)?
External territories NOT included (e.g. Greenland, French Guiana)
Just because a country has a large area, doesn't mean it has a long perimeter!
Figures may not be exact as different measuring methods with different levels of accuracy are used. See "coastline paradox" for more details.
