Total Border Coverage by Country (2021)



Total observed border coverage by nation.



Border Coverage is the complete distance of shared borders for a given nation in the GFP formula. Border coverage is considered an important factor as it can influence alliances and reflects incoming/outgoing traffic and commerce capabilities. In times of war, borders become increasingly crucial in homeland defense. As such, longer-spanning borders are a natural hinderance for a given defending power.

Island-nations, such as Australia, are not penalized for lacking shared borders but are penalized for lengthy coastlines.
