Depending on the definition of a country, there might be Cyprus.

Besides the two countries (one de jure), that island includes also two British Oversea territories and the UN buffer zone:

Yes, that's what I meant.

In addition to the Republic, the (disputed) Turkish Republic and the UK, there is also a UN controlled buffer zone, but since no one claims UN a country in itself (not even itself), I didn't count that.

The Cypriot buffer zone has the anomaly to not belong to any country. The whole Earth landmass can be divided into countries, dependencies, oversea territories, disputed areas,... Is this the only land that belong only to UN?
Even the Korean DMZ is split between the two countries, with the Demarcation Line that acts like a border.
I think that nobody lives in the Cypriot buffer zone, but if someone would born or die there, or if a crime or accident happens there, which country will be competent on this case?

Closer maps of British bases in Cyprus:

Well the buffer zone, as with Northern Cyprus de jure is a part of the Republic of Cyprus and I presume therefore that the Republic of Cyprus authorities would deal with that.

And some areas on the Croatian side of the Danube (which at that point is the Croatia/Serbia border). Google shows the Croatian-claimed border, while the actual one, which Serbia claims, is in the middle of the river. Since both lines cross each other, there are four patches of land in the Croatian side in the same situation as Bir Tawil.

Bit Tawil was recently claimed by an American man who proclaimed the Kingdom of North Sudan and nominated himself as king and his 7-years-old daughter as princess. He actually went there and planted a flag!

No, it's a ridiculous one.

I knew people around the world that could vote in general elections because they were citizens. They had never lived in Italy though, but happened to have an Italian grandparent, usually.

I could not vote, despite having been part of Italian society for more than 20 years, as Italians can vote in another country only if registered in special electoral rolls for those living abroad.

What is the official name of the HR-BA border crossing on the state road 39 and in which country is it located? In the bosnian and croatian Official Journals it is called Prisika on bosnian side and Aržano in croatian side, but looking at google streetwiev from south the last settlement is the village of Prisika before the border crossing. There is also a traffic sign with the number of the road 16.3 - 2 km before the border crossing in the direction of Bosnia and Hercegovina. In front of the offices of the border control, where the croatian flag is hoisted, there is the table with bosnian coat of arms and name of border crossing Prisika.
Is the actual bordercrossing already on the territory of Bosnia and Hercegovina? In which country is Prisika? Confusing...

Closer maps of British bases in Cyprus:

By the way, I remember reading something about a planned closure of those bases. Any development?

Izgradnja podrazumjeva pripremne radnje, izgradnju donjeg stroja i polaganje hidroinstalacija, mašinskih i elektro instalacija.

Procijenjena ukupna vrijednost ugovora bez PDV-a je 7.264.958 KM.

Rok za prijem ponuda je 21.10.2014. godine.

Kako je eKapija.ba ranije pisala u cilju realizacije ovoga projekta izvršena je eksproprijacija zemljišta i pribavljene su neophodne dozvole za gradnju.

Is it even necessary to build such borders? Just curious regarding Schengen ambitions. We had built several border crossings near Bratislava in second half of 90s that have remained unmanned since 2007. Now they are neglected and looking like ugly memorial for wrong spent money.

Well it'll be a long time before Bosnia joins Schengen and the new highway is connecting Bosnia to E70 at Gradiska so there will certainly be a need for a high capacity crossing.
