Are there any countries where the capital is right on the border?
I've included an illustration as an example of the concept
Bratislava, capital of Slovakia, is on the border with Austria and Hungary
Forgot pic, Belgrade is capital in case somebody doesn't know
Vientiane in Laos is directly on the border with Thailand.
Phnom Penh is pretty close to Cambodia's border with Vietnam.
Cambodian situation is a result of territorial expansion by Vietnam. Thailand did the same to Laos, but I can't remember if they moved the capital to Vientiane before or after that, but I think it was after.
Also, the two Congos have their capitals right next to each other, Kinshasa and Brazzaville. The capital of Chad is pretty close to Nigeria from memory, but it's on the other side of Lake Chad or something.
It's a pretty common situation I think, having a capital quite close to one border, with a hinterland that was expanded into over the history of the cunt.
This east-west (or, more famously, north-south) divisions normally imply that they where once a single state, and they were not as far as I know.
It would be certainly better than RC and RDC though.
Congo's Capital really triggers my shit.
I agree that Zaire sounds good and would be better (the flag is shit though). Anyways, the name of Zaire and the flag are sadly associated with Mobutu and will probably never come back.
Isn't Manila very up to the north of Philipines? It's basically placed to stop there and continue travelling to China without having to see the rest of the country, not exactly nice.

"democratic" usually denotes the shittier of any two states
eg. Democratic republic of Korea, Democratic republic of Germany, Democratic republic of Vietnam etc
The republic of the Congo is leagues more richer and stabler than the DRC
