The article examines the main geopolitical factors that determine the place of the state in the community of nations: the size of its territory, the density of the population, the rationality of its productive force’s location. Attention is paid to the identification of those reserves, the use of which will make it possible to carry out the breakthrough tasks defined by the May Decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin “On National Purposes and Strategic Development Challenges of the Russian Federation until 2024” (No. 204, May 2018). To solve research problems the author uses methods of legal cooperativities, sociological comprehension of the qualitative and quantitative state of population, and analyzes the legal basis on which the mechanism of lawmaking activity and law enforcement practice are developed.
