Might be worth having a look to see if we can improve the layout based on either of these (even though they aren't that good). The text is pretty thick at the moment. - FrancisTyers 20:26, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Hello. I think it is quite preposterous that there isn't a single map, physical or political, of the USSR - in the geography article no less! There might be some reason in the guideline which I'm not yet aware of, but I'm quite certain there isn't. I'm still quite new and I'm not sure how to add a map, so can someone, for the sake of the readers, add one - or atleast explain why there isn't one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goodguy1066 (talk • contribs) 15:54, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
The last sentence of the lead says that
- The USSR had a geographic centre further north than any other country except Canada, Iceland, the countries of Scandinavia, as about three quarters of the country was above the 50th parallel north.
What about Finland (which is Nordic but not Scandinavian)?
