Great interactive map.
Interesting part of the world.

I think we'll be hearing more and more about it as it becomes exploited for it's massive oil resources.

Excerpts:

"Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan have substantial gas reserves, but lack of pipeline capacity limits exports."

"Kazakhstan has the second largest oil and gas reserves in the region, behind Russia. Its oil production has more than doubled since 1999 and the government hopes to triple this by 2015."

Some of those countries may suddenly become part of the « rogue countries group ».
