    Novosibirsk is considered to be the regional capital. However, it is not the capital of a country.

    -

    The region referred to as Siberia, occupies about 5.2 million square miles, which roughly corresponds to about 9 percent of Earth's dry land mass. It is bounded by the Ural Mountains in the west and by the Pacific Ocean in the east. To the south lies central Asia, Mongolia, and China, and to the north the Arctic Ocean.

    ------

    Encompassing much of the Eurasian Steppe, the territory of Siberia extends eastward from the Ural Mountains to the watershed between the Pacific and Arctic drainage basins, and southward from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and the national borders of Mongolia and China. Siberia makes up about 77% of Russia's territory (13.1 million square kilometres),

    Siberia ain't a nation, Spirit User. It's an eastern region in Russia. & Novosibirsk isn't the Russian capital, although I'm amazed anyone can make that guess. If I were to make a wrong answer, I'd say that St. Petersburg was the capital. But of course it's Moscow.
