Kazakhstan is a large landlocked country in Central Asia, sharing a border with Russia in the north, China in the southeast, and three other Soviet satellite states in the south (Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan).
The Kazakhstani portion of the Ryn Desert was chosen as the venue for the Quidditch World Cup in 1877. However, due to mysterious circumstances, nobody in the wizarding world remembered the tournament actually taking place that year.
