The term land locked refers to a country that is completely in land; it doesn't have a coastline to its name and is surrounded by land on all four sides. According to a survey conducted in the year 2006 there are around 43 land locked countries in the world. However being a landlocked country has its disadvantages, it can deny the country of one of the major sea resources that it fishing. But one of the major things the country is deprived of is the access to sea borne trade, which in these modern times makes up a huge amount of international trade.

Land locked countries include; Austria, Afghanistan, Andorra, Belarus, Bolivia, Bhutan, Chad, Czech Republic, Hungary, Laos, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Nepal, Paraguay, Switzerland and Zimbabwe.
