The only difference is that Mongolia is 77 times larger than Slovenia.

Anyway, there's a country south of Mongolia with over 1.3 billion inhabitants.

Even Kosovo which is one of the worlds smallest states has more paved roads than Mongolia has all together...

Yes, but Kosovo is a small territory while Mongolia is a large one. Mongolia is more comparable with Namibia, though it is not as wealthy and even more sparsely populated. Namibia though does have paved roads linking the (few) more important settlements and international borders.

From what I have heard, most roads in Mongolia are unpaved. Found this picture on Flickr.

Yeah that's a common rural "road". I think you can do 60+ km/h there though.

For instance, the most important road to China (Erenhot) looks like this.

doesn't qualify as an expressway since there is no central reservation.

No. There are hardly any paved roads. I doubt if there is much signage too.

Judging by the number of RHD vehicles, Mongolia appears to be a big market for used JDM vehicle imports. I understand that parts of eastern Russia are the same, with an extremely high number of used RHD vehicles coming in from Japan.
