Relative Closest 1st and 2nd City

Can you name the countries with the closest 1st and 2nd city relative to the extreme length of the country? Read instructions!

Ratio = distance between first and second city divided by the extreme length (See 'How to Play' for more details) of the country. I don’t want the 1st and 2nd city to be in the same agglomeration, because that will give a strange image. It is difficult to set the boundary of every agglomeration, so I decided the two cities should be at least 25 kilometers apart. If the two cities are in the same agglomeration, the second city is replaced by the largest city outside the agglomeration. Both cities are on the largest continuous tract of land. A consequence of the 25km threshold: micro-nations are left out of this quiz. #51-#70 are bonusses. All the sources of this quiz can be found in the first comment.

More Info:
  • The extreme length is the longest straith line in a country. The line is drawn between two points on the largest continuous tract of land, so smaller islands and exclaves of a country aren't included.
