Russia, officially the Russian Federation is a country in northeastern Europe. It is a federal semi-presidential republic. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, occupied Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia. It shares maritime borders with the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Sea. It shares maritime borders with Japan from Okhotsk and Vladivostok. It shares maritime borders with the Canadian Arctic Islands in the Arctic Circle. At 17,098,242 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering 36% of Continental Europe, and the entirety of northern Asia. Russia is also the world's eighth most populous nation with 120 million people as of 1960. The modern day Russian Federation was formed in 1917 when Russia suffered from a civil war which threw it out of World War 1 and established a new Russian Soviet Socialist Republic, which soon went to war in 1919 and further occupied the state of Ukraine, which had broken away during the revolution. After the settlement of official union boundaries, the Soviet Union was founded by the Treaty of Creation in 1922. The Soviet Union participated in World War 2, while in the process obtaining new territories which eventually became exclaves of Russia or entirely new members of the union, and dealt with a brief standoff with the United States and their western allies, which is now referred to as the Cold War. The Soviet Union dissolved in 1951 after the stagnation of the economy and public dissatisfaction with the government, and left in its place 15 individual nations. In 1952, the current constitution was drafted, and the Russian Federation was formed.
