Mongolia is a country surrounded by land located in the Eastern and Central part of Asia. The country is surrounded to the north by Russia and to south, east, and west by China. Mongolia has very little agricultural land as the land is covered by steppes surrounded by mountains to the west and north. The world's coldest desert, Gobi Desert, lies to the south. The country is the 19th largest country in the world.

Mongolia's economy is centered on agriculture and mining due to the rich mineral deposits of copper, coal, molybdenum, tin, tungsten, and gold that are extracted from the mountains. The urban centers have most of the commercial activities and those in the rural areas live off subsistence herding of livestock. There is little agricultural activity and it is limited to planting crops at best. However slow, tourism is gaining ground in Mongolia.
