One of only two doubly landlocked countries in the world, Uzbekistan is located in Central Asia and borders Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. A former Soviet republic, the current president has been ruling since 1989 and elections usually fall well below international standards, with widespread vote fraud and restrictions on opposition. Human rights standards are very poor, with widespread torture, restrictions on speech, a brutal justice system and mass child labour, particularly in the annual cotton harvest.
