Name the largest city (min 50K+ population) closer to another country’s capital than its own for each country-country combination. For example, Russia (China) is looking for the largest Russian city which is closer to China’s capital than Russia’s. A background capitals map is provided for reference, you can click ‘pause’ to see it more clearly if needed. NOTE: I excluded overseas dependencies/departments of France and the Netherlands as they have dozens of closer capitals than their own.

    Hey, I think you might need to be a little more specific in the directions about which French cities you’re omitting. French Guiana, Reunion, and I think a few other things, are not actually overseas dependencies, they’re overseas departments – which probably seems like an absurdly nitpicky thing to say, except that overseas departments are quite different from dependencies – really more analogous to Alaska or Hawaii than to, say, American Samoa or the USVI (in that they have the same political status as any part of Metropolitan France).

      Looked it up. Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Mayotte are the others.
