    Build it in a city on a small peninsula with a one-tile wide path to the main land?
    As long as it is culturally isolated, and the peninsula is completely surrounded by water, you have a one tile GW.

    This is the one I remember seeing. Think Earth map with the Great Wall going across Panama.

    In CIV, the Panama Canal is very easy to make. Just plop a fort down there.

    Yeah, it's a famous palindrome though...

    EDIT:

    Spoiler :
    “Dammit I’m mad.
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
    To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
    Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
    Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
    I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
    Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
    In my halo of a mired rum tin.
    I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
    Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
    No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
    Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
    Be still if I fill its ebb.
    Ew, a spider… eh?
    We sleep. Oh no!
    Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
    Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
    Both, one… my names are in it.
    Murder? I’m a fool.
    A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash.
    A Goddam level I lived at.
    On mail let it in. I’m it.
    Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
    A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
    Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
    “Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    Dammit I’m mad.

    My favourite palindrome is one of Weird Al's :-
    Go, hang a salami: I'm a lasagna hog.

    I have a feeling this thread has gone off topic . . .

    Yeah, but it sounds like a song the Beatles made during their 'Benefit of Mr Kite' phase.

    Liar. I know you're the eggman.

    And of course, Henry the horse dances the waltz.

    Not enough cars with their wheels stolen for Liverpool.

    Buried, obviously.

    We know it's not London because it hasn't got a shining blue halo showing my exact location.

    You know, now that I think about it, I also hold a very long wall... or rather, two dozen shorter ones.

    Good news, everyone! I have created the longest-ever uninterrupted, single-piece GW ever!

    View here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKO5yr3xysg

    Japan, too. Apparently, if there's a square of shoreline adjacent to two landmasses, they count as one continent :think:

    In case you haven't noticed, there isn't a "no worldbuilder" rule in this thread.
