Once south, being the only one to border all five. It's also one of the only two nations in the world, alongside UsefulNotes/{{Liechtenstein}}, to be doubly-landlocked (i.e. you need to cross two states to find sea). The region of the present-day Uzbekistan has long been the center of civilization in Central Asia. Settled by Iranian peoples including Scythians, Sogdians, and Khwarezms, since ancient times, the region became the center of Islamic activity during its spread to Central Asia and was part of the Persian Samanid Silk Road trade route. Some of its cities, including Samarkand and later Timurid empires, Bukhara, other than serving as education centers, also received multiple cultures through traders who stopped throughout the Silk Road. After the reigns of the Samanids and Timurids, the region was conquered in the early 16th century by Uzbek nomads, who spoke an Eastern Turkic language. Most of Uzbekistan’s population today belong to the Uzbek ethnic group and speak the Uzbek language, one of the family of Turkic languages. language.

Uzbeks are found in other countries as well -- mainly Afghanistan, where they are the third biggest minority group, and other former Soviet republics. Uzbekistan is one of Russia's biggest sources of immigrants, legal or otherwise.

Other than Uzbeks, pretty much all peoples from the former Soviet Union are represented here, including Tajiks (showing that the Turkic migrations didn't spell out the death of the Iranians here), Karakalpaks (closely related to Kazakh, who themselves also inhabit the country), Russians, Kyrgyzs, Armenians, Azeris, and, surprisingly, Koreans. In addition, UsefulNotes/JosephStalin mainly resettled the deported Tatars of [[UsefulNotes/{{Ukraine}} Crimea]] in Uzbekistan. Oh, and there's also a once-large community of Jews, most of whom had emigrated after Main/TheGreatPoliticsMessUp, alongside the aforementioned Crimean Tatars. Uzbekistan is one of Russia's biggest sources of immigrants, legal or otherwise.

Uzbekistan's economy relies mainly on commodity production, including cotton, gold, uranium, potassium, and natural gas. Despite the declared objective of transition to a market economy, Uzbekistan continues to maintain rigid economic controls, which often repel foreign investors. The policy of gradual, strictly controlled transition has nevertheless produced beneficial results in the form of economic recovery after 1995. Uzbekistan's [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny domestic policies on human rights and individual freedoms]] are often criticized by international organizations (when there's a pervasive rumour that your leader enjoys boiling dissidents alive, you have a bit of a problem...). Uzbeks are found in other countries as well--mainly Afghanistan, where they are the third biggest minority group, and other former Soviet republics. Uzbekistan is one of Russia's biggest sources of immigrants, both legal and illegal. [[AC: The Uzbek flag]] http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/125px-Flag_of_Uzbekistan_svg_3999.png

I am pretty sure that the person who wrote about Uzbeks in Afghanistan confused them with Tajiks.
Uzbeks are found in other countries as well--mainly Afghanistan, where they are the biggest minority group and the local supporters of America.
