Are we allowed to look at world maps in formulating guess?

I've looked at maps a couple of times just to get the wheels turning, but I think we shouldn't google the clues, obviously.

In that case, how about Iraq? It's got a pretty tiny coastal spur that looks politically engineered. I can't tell if it actually cuts off another country, though.

Very close. Correct sea, even correct coast.

Not a bad guess but Iraq's coastline is a staggering 58 km.

As for the maps, Do as Thou Wilt but it's immediately obvious on a map of course.
Here's another tip. The historical country which had to concede the corridor was the Republic of Venice.
