I cross the border between Saudi and Bahrain at least twice a week... though it's confined to a small island there is a land border. I think most of the time it's just not counted, though. and I think technically the entire island is within the water of Saudi Arabia.. but Bahrain controls its side of the island and I think Bahraini laws apply there. The McDonald's on their side does not close for prayer times like the one on the Saudi side does.

Here's that border island - I still can't find out if it's shared or, as Kal says, it's all Saudi despite Bahrain's control of half of it.

Crazy. I've never looked at Bahrain on Google Maps before but it looks like almost every mile of coastline is manipulated or engineered in some way. There are a bunch of trippy features. Have you ever been out to here?

I have. You should look up a time-lapse satellite view of the country some time it has gotten substantially larger as they keep expanding their artificial coastline.

If you look up either country on Google Maps, it gets highlited in red and each country highlights half of the island

From what I could figure out from this document http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/62003.pdf , the island should be completely situated in Bahraini waters.

Saudi Arabia could have had a land border with Israel, but, probably because they believe Jews have cooties, they gifted a strip of land to Jordan so that Jordan would have a small coastline on the Gulf of Aqaba, and Saudi wouldn't have to touch Israel.

More recently they're at work doing something similar to Qatar, due to disagreements with the royal family there.

This quiz should have a minute and thirty seconds at the MOST. Really it should be only one minute.

Saudi Arabia is gonna build a canal to separate itself from Qatar. Eventually, it will be removed from this list.

I thought you were joking at first, but they're actually doing it! I guess oil magnates solve a diplomatic crisis by physically separating neighboring countries.

I completely agree that bridges count as borders, because, think about it, a border and a bridge both have border crossings, and you can cross them (at least most of the time).
