South Australia, of course, which touches Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory (which isn't a state). (NSW touches Victoria, SA, Qld and has the ACT floating entirely inside of it, giving it second place.) Having only six states and two mainland territories (we have others: the Australian Antarctic Territory, the Christmas Island Territory, the Cocos (Keeling) Islands and such, but no-one cares about them) makes it easy enough to remember stuff about them. And make most of them dwarf Texas (are Texans as obsessed with the size of their state as they're made out to be?). Tristan.
