1) Largest nation in land area, has a population 140 million, steadily declining since collapse of USSR
2) Capital Moscow is Europe's largest city with 13 million people, frequently ranks as 2nd most expensive city after Tokyo
3) Is mostly a democracy on paper only
4) US dollars and Euros are used just as much as rubles
5) Owner of the world's largest stockpile of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons
6) Has a very safe and successful space program
7) Struggles to maintain a vast military, while dealing with domestic terrorism daily
8) Has a thouroughly obscene obsession with German sedans
9) Average worker makes only $200 a month
10) Is incredibly beautiful in the winter
When in Moscow, watch out for the government (and not-so-government) luxobarges that like to drive on the opposite side of the road at triple digit speeds. Sphincter clenchingly terrifying, and makes Russian roulette look like a kindergarten game.

A really big and very cool country in the east. Managed to crush the Nazi occupation force after a decisive tank battle in the fields of Kursk.
Currently fighting those damn rebels, as of yet they are the only country to do anything effective to fight global terrorism. They pwned the bastards.
Russia has given birth to all sorts of cool stuff, Vodka, the t-32 battle tank, the ak47 and kossack hats.

Russia is the biggest country in the world. Has a powerful military force and has made a big contribution to humanity. The country was in complete shit after 1991 when the Union collapsed, but since the beggining of the XXI century is experiencing a steady and large economic growth. Nowadays a big part of the budget is being spent on new sciences, like nanotechnology and genetic research. There are still many disparities between the capital cities and the rest of russia, but eventually that will straighten up. Birthrates are low and the fertility rate rate is subreplacement. But that's what happens in most of the West anyway. Yes, there are drunken fucktards, but most Russians actually have 2 or more higher degree educations. The vast majority of "russians" living in the US are actually Jews whose parents were born in the USSR.
guy - Russia is VERY big!
me - yes it is!
