Russia needed modern agriculture, not colonialism.
I don't have much hope for such a country, with all the non-Russian republics gone it was going to be a weak country.
According to Solzhenitsyn, the political scene was entirely socialistic, so probably like pre-Pinochet Chile or modern Venezuela.
It would be a race to the bottom - who was the better socialist with the resulting poverty and chaos, till a strongman arrives.
What about having Russians (and Ukrainians, and Belarusians) colonize the Baltic states (especially both Latvia and Estonia) up to the point that they actually became Slavic-majority?

That's a 25% decrease of Poles from 1926 to 1939--not from 1926 to 1930!
should be 1939.
