%%* Portugal to Spain.

to:

%%* * Portugal to Spain.


Added DiffLines:

** Argentina itself is this to Brazil, alongside the aforementioned three nations and Venezuela. One could also say Brazil is this to the rest of South America besides Chile and Ecuador, the only countries that don't border it.
* Guyana and Suriname are this to South America as a whole, what with them being more culturally-similar to the Caribbean nations than Latin American ones.

** England also sees America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as these, which is weird considering that they're portrayed as England's children.

* Canada to the United States. This even has [[CanadaEh its own subtrope]].
** Not surprisingly, many Canadians also think of the US this way.
** Whilst many [=QNCs=] are smaller than their related country, Canada manages to invert this by being the second largest country by area. It is significantly less populated, and most Canadians live fairly close the the American border, however.
* Cambodia to Vietnam.

* ''BlackBooks'' references this a few times between Ireland and the UK, as does ''Series/TheITCrowd''. Both have Irish characters in the main cast who usually blend in but sometimes make jokes about their nationality. E.g. in an episode of the latter, Roy meets a guy who claims to "looove Irish people!" and is rather patronising about it.

* Laos to Thailand.
* Liberia and Sierra Leone to each other.
* Malaysia to Indonesia.
** Brunei to both of them. It's the only one still ruled by an absolute monarch (others have adopted more democratic governments) and, though all three are Muslim-majority, it's the only one which is explicitly and ''seriously'' an Islamic state (the country is ruled by sharia laws).
* Nepal to India.
** India has a lot of quirky neighbor countries, just because of how big and dominating it is to all of them and how they all share cultural heritages with each other (think of them as Ancient Greece, but with the size of Europe and the diversity of [[UpToEleven New Guinea]]). Examples include: [[LongList Pakistan to India, Bangladesh to India, Sri Lanka to India, Maldives to India...]] (note that the first two are actually a part of India until shortly after WorldWarII).
