List of countries that only border one country

This is a list of countries that only have a land border with one other country.

Nations that only share and land border with one other country often have concerns about domination by the other state if it is larger. These can be fears of an outright take-over as has happened historically to such states as East Timor and Ireland. Today concerns are ore often about economic domination as with the Canada/United States relationship or the Denmark/Germany one. Because much trade goes over land these countries are often heavily reliant on their single neighbour.
