Yeah one Turkey plus one Turkey equals two Turkey. I think my logic is sound lol, just being silly.

Well Spain and pretty much any country in Latin America is the obvious one.

Somalia and Yemen

Netherlands and South Africa

Scotland and New Zealand

Japan and UK (both influential island nations)

Mexico and Peru (both have ancient civilisations with a lot of Amerinid blood)

Colombia and Panama, which were all one country a couple hundred years ago. Similar to the Turkey issue above, but at a different point in their history.

Turkey - Azerbaijan. The Caucasus countries are classified as Europe by most line-drawers.

Egypt - Syria, which were amalgamated into the United Arab Republic for a few years in the 60s.

Greenland - Canada.

Madagascar - Indonesia. The people of both countries share a common ethnicity.

Netherlands - South Africa, which share both ethnicity and language, and their modern cultures evolved alongside each other.

Surinam - India. Surinam is about 40% of Hindustani ancestry.

Liberia - USA. The ancestors of modern Liberians are freed slaves from the Americas, and still speak English with a black American accent. They use only US dollars, and have never had their own currency.

Dominican Republic - Equatorial Guinea. Both African island cultures with Spanish language and colonial history.

Cuba - Philippines. Both tropical former Spanish colonies taken over and developed by the USA and then by despots.

I thought Greenland was on same continent as Canada
Demark owns it, so is it considered to be part of Europe?

Both are rugged and mountainous?
