Guidelines[edit]

Articles of federal subjects[edit]

The article should start with a good introduction, giving the name of the federal subject in English, its name in Russian (Cyrillic), and its name in any other official language of the federal subject (in that language).

A fact sheet is to be included on the right side of the article.

The rest of the article consists of the following paragraphs (where possible, try to insert the chapters in this order for consistency). Each paragraph can include a link to a more detailed article on the subject:

  • Geography: Describe the geographical features within the federal subject (rivers, lakes, mountains, natural resources, climate).
    • Geography overview section should give information on the following items: area, borders information (border length, list of federal subjects with common border, list of bordered foreign countries, list of bordered seas/oceans/lakes), highest point, maximum N->S distance, maximum E->W distance, average elevation. Some of this information is repeated in the fact sheet (see Template).
    • Rivers section should list all of the major rivers located on the territory of the federal subject and provide a link to a more details article on federal subject's rivers (which would include descriptions of minor rivers).
    • Lakes section should list all of the major lakes located on the territory of the federal subject and provide a link to a more details article on federal subject's lakes (which would include descriptions of minor lakes).
    • Mountains section should list all of the major mountains located on the territory of the federal subject and provide a link to a more details article on federal subject's mountains (which would include descriptions of minor mountains and hills).

    • Climate section should provide climate review information as well as information on the following items: average annual temperature, January temperature range/average, July temperature range/average, average annual precipitation.
  • Administrative divisions: provide an overview of the federal subject's administrative structure; further subsections should include a list of districts and a list of major settlements with their status (city, town, village, etc.)
  • Demographics: information on population (number of people, urban/rural population, male/female population, number of females per 1,000 males, average age, households statistical information, average life expectancy). Most of the information is available from 2002 Census data.

  • Religion: any relevant information on religion.
  • Tourism: any relevant information on tourism; points of interest (may cross-reference sections on Culture and History).
