Landlocked country in East Asia
Mongolia is a landlocked country in East Asia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia, which is sometimes used to refer to the current state.

Mongolia does not share a border with Kazakhstan, although only 37 kilometres separate them.
