I believe it was Dominick, but I can't remember if he had posted another challenge.

I only remembered one of the countries but if that is enough here goes:

Wiki lists 195 countries in its page on countries by area. The biggest is Russia with 17 million kmē and Vatican City is the smallest with 0.44 kmē. But which country is smack in the middle at 98th place with 118000 kmē? For reference, that's about 4 times Belgium.

I'll take a blind stab and say Ghana. It seems like a number of those west Africa countries are about the right size.

45,500 square miles?

Hmmm... I suspect there are quite a few countries in that range.

I'll go with Greece.

Africa is the right continent and Greece is the right size as it's only three positions from the country we're looking for.
On second thought though it's probably not a very good country for a quiz as it's really obscure. So I'm going to skip a few rounds of hints and straightaway say that one of its neighbours is Tanzania.

Anyway, I'll go with Kenya.

(mostly because I'm hard-pressed to name another country that borders Tanzania)

Uganda is almost twice as large as country X and Kenya is 'huuuge' at position 48.
It's wedged between Tanzania, Mozambique and Zambia and it's dirt poor even for African standards.
And if that doesn't help, we'll play hangman :
