Kind of cool because both countries formerly only had one land border, the US and Germany, respectively.   Still needs to be ratified.

If you like, please post a Canadian or Danish coin to celebrate the peaceful resolution of the "Whisky War."

I rather liked the idea of a low key "whisky war" vs the current boring settlement.

 

It is a bit more interesting... although as someone who took quite a bit of geography classes in college the idea of two countries literally doubling their number of neighbors is also pretty cool.

Finland doesn't have even a mountain, only hills.  Norwegians have discussed turning over some territory in the northeast of the country so that their neighbour - Finland - can have a mountain.  Gotta love Scandinavian countries, looking out for each other.
