[[AC:{{UsefulNotes/Television}}]]
* ''Series/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.

** Vancouver, WA (not the one in Canada) is like this to Portland, OR, considered to be somewhat more conservative and less culturally advanced (and also as of 2014 the place Portlanders go to get pot and gay married, given that both are legal there). People who live in Vancouver but spend a lot of time in Portland are considered to be tax dodgers, given that Washington has a lower income tax while Oregon has no sales tax. The current mayor of Portland, Charlie Hales, got in trouble for doing this in the past.

** 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).
