Kypchakia is a non-sovereign region in the current Commonwealth of Independent States where homelands of major Kypchak-Turkic speaking peoples are located, stretching from Kyrgyzstan in the East to Northern Caucasus/Chuvashia in the West, and Riazan in the North to Kazakhstan to the South.

Greater Kypchakia also includes the Russian-Ukrainian steppes, the Carpathians, Transylvania where historical Pecheneg, Cumans, and Magyars held sway, and the bulk of Siberia where many forest peoples have strong connections with the Turkic pastoral culture of the steppes.

A reviving cultural zone, its proponents hope Kypchakia will serve as a more conservative and more balanced economy than Western Russia, the traditional heartland of the Federation. The Kypchak language is gathering popularity among Tatars, Bashkirs, Russians, Kazakhs and diverse ethnic/religious groups as a vital, creative new lingua franca of eastern Russian Federation.

Key to the establisment of this new federation is cultivation, in place of exploitation. To achieve this cultivation, Siberia will develop more links with Central Asian oil producing regions, China, Japan and the Koreas. It is observed that the increasing demand for autonomy among large Siberian confederated republics, okrugs and regions points to this direction of decentralization and conservation. The Russian Federation is learning from the disasters of shock therapy and plutocratic oligarchy, afflicted by crippling explosion of HIV epidemic, crime rate, decimating alcoholism, general social degeneration and is rivaled by Western and Islamic powers in Western Eurasia.
