The current era is a time of global transformation of the world order: the transit of territorial (geopolitical) format of Modernity urban culture and its main political form, the national state to geo-economic state: a dynamic modus operandi trans-boundary metapolis culture (geo-economics). Actual formula of current peace-building phase is a new regionalism, which is formed on the basis of existing economic ties within the geo-economic matrix of the new division of labor and socio-cultural gravity connecting complementary peoples in complex dynamic community, based on anthropological rather than territorial reading of post-modern political geography (“country is its people”). Key resource is the socio-cultural identity and active, productive viability manifested within the geo-economic and post-economic worldview. Folding the Russian identity is closely linked to territorial expansion in the north-east direction, which embraced both colonization and geo-cultural build vast expanses and targeted promotions to the ocean coast: wiring the Northern Sea Route, the laying of the Great Siberian tract, improvement of Maritime Province (Primorye) with access to the open spaces of the Pacific (Slavorossia – “Slavic Russia”), as well as the progressive development of Turkestan and Northeast China (“Yellow Russia”) with the prospect of implementing the idea of Trans-Eurasian springboard. Primary means of expansion and improvement conceived transport arteries, mainly railway construction: Trans-Siberian, Chinese Eastern Railway, South Manchurian Railway, and other Trans-Caspian routes. Implementation of large-scale transport and infrastructure megaproject in Russian was completed at the beginning of the 20th century and was the basis for industrial, industrial takeoff.
