Everyone Panic, Russia is Dead

According to a new study by the UN, Russia's population will fall from 141.8 million in 2008 to a very lonely 107.8 million by 2050.

Seriously, if Russia is going to look like the "Last Man On Earth" by 2050, why is a Moscow apartment still so expensive? "Can a zombie Russian's hunger for life repopulate the earth?!?" Who knows, but at least there will be fewer traffic jams on the ring road.

Positive thinking, people.

Anyway, in case you're interested, by 2050:
Turkey's population: 98.9 million (+)
Iran's population: 100.2 (+)
Mexico's population: 132.3(+)
Japan's population: 102.5 (-)

Sorry Japan.

(Also, in answer to an earlier question about Bulgaria -- thanks mrta! -- that country will loose over 35% of its population in the next 42 years, leaving a scant 4.9 million Bulgarians to enjoy Varna's subtle pleasures.)
