Siberia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1002 words)
Siberia (Russian: Сиби́рь, common English transliterations: Sibir’, Sibir; from the Tatar for “sleeping land”) is a vast region of Russia and northern Kazakhstan constituting almost all of northern Asia.
Siberia was occupied by differing groups of nomads such as the Yenets, the Nenets, the Huns, and the Uyghurs.
If Siberia were to secede from Russia, it would be the world's second-largest country, with only Canada being larger.
