Regional anthem of Tuva Republic

Tooruktug Dolgay Tangdym (Tuvan: Тооруктуг долгай таңдым, The Forest is Full of Pine Nuts; Russian: Пуща полна ек кедра; also translated as "The Forest is Full of Cedar Nuts" or "The Taiga is Full of Cedar Nuts") is an old Tuvan folk song that has become the official anthem of the Republic of Tuva, Russia.[1] It was also the national anthem of the Tuvan People's Republic, as the region was known during its brief period of national sovereignty (1921 - 1944).

The song expresses the Tuvan belief that a person who takes care of his environment, his livestock, and the plentiful taiga will want for nothing. It refers to Tangdy, or the Tannu-Ola mountains, a mountain range in southern Tuva that is revered by the Tuvan people. The name of the mountain range is incorporated into "Tannu-Tuva," the popular name for the Tuvan People's Republic.[2]

Когда я гуляю в своих лесах,
я всегда доволен -
ведь мои леса богаты
животными и всем, что мне нужно.
Там, среди гор,
скал, тайги, родился я.
Вот почему я так силен.
Я буду выращивать свой домашний скот
и стану богатым.
Девять различных животных – Если я буду
пасти их и кормить
и позабочусь о них, как о своих,
Я стану богат.

English translation of lyrics

When I walk in my forest
I will always be satisfied
Because my forest is rich with
animals and everything I need.
There in the mountains, the
cliffs, the taiga, I was born.
Because of that I am strong.
I will raise my livestock
and be rich.
Nine different animals – If I herd
them and feed them
And take care of them as my
own – I'll be rich.
