More than 26 would be fine, then we can pick and choose the best onesOther possibles: was annexed into / annexed; orchestrated a coup in; lies directly N/S/E/W of (alternately, lies on the same latitude / longitude of); landlocked vs. coastal; something with highest/lowest elevations

Note that relationships to Tuva should refer to Tuva while it was its own country (1921-1944):Could/should we also specify years for other countries?
31
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvan_People%27s_Republic
32
It was called "Tuvan People's Republic" while independent, but we should probably use the popular name "Tannu Tuva" or just "Tuva" in the center circle as it is more Feynman-thematic.
33
34
Ways to get to Tuva:
35
Shared a land border with Mongolia & Russia/laterUSSR1
36
Gained independence from Russia2Note this is Imperial Russia (pre-USSR), not the modern Russia
37
Tuva was occupied by Russia3Factcheck problem: Russian occupation was prior to Tuva becoming independent as Tuva (there was no WW2 occupation that I can find). Also, China occupied that region while it was part of Russia (again, pre-Tuva-as-country). However, Tuva was actually annexed into USSR at the end - could this be made into another relationship?
38
Fought WWII alongside USSR etc4,5
39
China disputes territory with Tuva6Factcheck problem: Don't think China disputed this territory after fall of Qing dynasty (1911) but Tuva-as-country wasn't formed until later. Mongolia (which also broke off from China) recognized Tuva boundaries in treaty when country was formed in 1921
