Glorious Republic of Kazakhstan to have new emporium of semi-disposable Swedish furnishings and meatballs (what are meatballs anyway?)

Sorry...could not resist this one. I have a feeling Borat will not be at the grand opening. Actually, and seriously, IKEA is going to spend $500 million on malls in Almaty and Astana, the capital and the major commercial center of the country. This means Kazakhstan will have as many IKEAs as Illinois.
