being an island nation far from other countries & islands

Madagascar borders only on the high seas

it does this at a distance of 12 nautical miles seaward in all directions from its coastal baselines

but it also enjoys at least hypothetically exclusive economic zone borders with 10 other countries & island groups that surround it at a greater distance in every direction but the south

these eez borders fall or will fall anywhere from about 35 to 200 nautical miles out to sea

but in the south Madagascar is entitled to extend the limits of its eez as far as the end of its continental shelf or up to 350 nautical miles out to sea
