Name a country that is entirely within another country but has no common border: a tricky geographical puzzle from Reddit

Even if you know the world map well, it's not a given that you'll be able to cope with the task

Have you ever solved a puzzle that can only be solved by thinking outside the box? This geography puzzle is a great example of that.

It was published on Reddit in the r/puzzles section, which is dedicated to various kinds of logic, mindfulness, and other tasks. At first glance, it looks like an ordinary geography quiz question. However, a closer look reveals that the correct answer can only be given if you think creatively.

So, the question sounds like this, "Name a country that is completely surrounded by another country without sharing a border." Here's a hint: there are at least three possible answers.

Of course, the first one that comes to mind is the Vatican. This country is not just located on the territory of Italy. It fits into its capital, Rome, alone. And then there is San Marino.

We can also mention the Republic of South Africa. Lesotho and Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) are located on its territory.

Unfortunately, all these options are not suitable. They fall under only one condition: they are completely inside another country. At the same time, there are borders between them. Just look at the world map where they are clearly outlined.

How then can you give the correct answer to the task if it does not explicitly refer to geographical location? The answer is waiting for you below. In the meantime, make another attempt to apply a non-standard approach to the problem.

Are you ready to give at least one answer? Formulate it mentally or write it down (by the way, it will really help you), and now look below. We will publish the correct options there.

So, how can one country be completely located inside another without having common borders? It's simple: the full name of one can be part of the name of the other. Here are the correct options

Bolivia and Libya. The former is located in South America, and the latter is in Africa.

Somalia and Mali. Although both countries are located in Africa, they do not share a common border. Between them are Niger, Chad, Sudan, and Ethiopia.

Jordan and Denmark. We are looking for one of them on the shores of the warm Gulf of Aqaba in the Middle East, and the other between the cold Baltic and North Seas in northern Europe.
