A country is defined to be landlocked if it is entirely surrounded by land; alternatively, if it does not border any oceans or seas.[1] Traditionally, landlocked countries are considered to be at an economic disadvantage. They have more limited trade routes[2] as well as no access to ocean reasources such as fishing. A double landlocked country is one that's surrounded only by other landlocked countries. There are only two double landlocked countries in the world, Liechtenstein and Uzbekistan[3].
