I would make the country's border an Alexander horned sphere. 03:21, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

At least this border doesn't have thickness. --Angel (talk) 04:48, 23 September 2021 (UTC) -yet 05:46, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

GIS: Geographic Information System, that are the systems where maps (and the borders) are defined. They won't care much though, because for them the ground information is the relevant one. Once you get into air, you'll get a problem, because if the border is very sloped, and not in average straight, then an airplane might still be in the airzone of a different country than where it's flying over. Which will cause all kinds of problems, security wise. Liechtenstein might loose all control over its airspace, yet their inhabitants want safety even from aircraft flying above them. Can't imagine that going well, but bureaucrazy is that: it creates paperwork when it is not busy enough with the procedures it already created. 05:46, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
