Rus­sia, also offi­cially known as the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion, is a coun­try in north­ern Eura­sia. It is a fed­eral semi-presidential repub­lic, com­pris­ing 83 fed­eral sub­jects. From north­west to south­east, Rus­sia shares land bor­ders with Nor­way, Fin­land, Esto­nia, Latvia, Lithua­nia and Poland (both with Kalin­ingrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Geor­gia, Azer­bai­jan, Kaza­khstan, China, Mon­go­lia, and North Korea. It shares mar­itime bor­ders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilo­me­tres (6,592,800 sq mi), Rus­sia is the largest coun­try in the world, cov­er­ing more than one- eighth of the Earth’s inhab­ited land area. Rus­sia is also the world’s ninth most pop­u­lous nation with 143 mil­lion peo­ple as of 2012. Extend­ing across the entirety of north­ern Asia and much of East­ern Europe, Rus­sia spans nine time zones and incor­po­rates a wide range of envi­ron­ments and landforms.

Moscow is the capital of Russia. Within the Republic there are around 1,000 towns, of these, including Moscow, nine cities have a population of over a million (St.Petersburg, Volgograd, Rostov on Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Ufa, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk, and Omsk).

The territory enjoys a wide array of natural blessings in terms of its topography. The western part largely has vast plains (East European and West Siberian) interrupted by the Ural Mountains to the east and the mountainous areas of southern and northeastern Siberia and the Soviet at the Far East. In the south of the European part are the mountain ranges of the Greater Caucasus.

Due to its size, Russia has variable climatic conditions differing from the Arctic in the northern parts to subtropical in the south. Over most of the territory, however, the mean January temperature is below Zero. The Republic has a largely good network of perennial rivers. The Caspian Sea basin receives the flow from the Volga, Ural and the rivers of Dagestan. There are also some 2 million fresh and salt-water lakes, the biggest of which are the Baikal, Ladoga, and Onega.
