Countries whose bordering Countries are all further North/East/South or West

Some countries' neighbours are all further North (the latitude of their geographical center is higher). For some others all neighbours are further East (their longitude is higher) and so on. Can you find all such countries? You are shown number of borders and direction as a hint. Bearings are measured between the geographical centers of countries.
Data from Portland State University (https://www.pdx.edu/econ/country-geography-data), for missing countries from CIA (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/fields/2011.html)

UK and Qatar excluded as UK-Gibraltar and Qatar-UAE borders are dubious ones
