Border Quizzes

As anyone who has ever gone through a border crossing knows, they are probably the most important imaginary lines in the world, and Sporcle has plenty of quizzes about them. Our most popular quiz is the world countries border blitz, which we dare you to say five times fast. If you're interested in a more standard challenge, you should just try to name the bordering countries or countries that have one border. Of course, they do say good fences make good neighbors, so maybe there's something to these imaginary lines after all.
