If you were impressed by the Instagram account that documents the lifestyles of America's richest teens (opens in new tab), just wait until you see the Russian version. The rich kids of Russia are bigger, more lavish, and furrier than their American counterparts. After all, you can never have too much gold, right? Right? 

Some light rules to follow if you want to be one of the #RichRussianKids: 

Always travel with a Saudi billionaire. 

Don't forget to walk your pet raccoon before you go. 

And to feed your pet tiger. 

Make sure your dog doesn't get behind the wheel after a bottle of champagne. 

Always pretend you are in a rap video. 

Bottles of champagne must be gold plated. 

Cars too. 

Swimming pools and hot tubs must always overlook greater bodies of water. 

Sunbathe topless or not at all. 

Swimsuit bottoms must be thongs. 

This is very important for proper butt selfies. 

If you're not swimming with an exotic animal, then there is no point in swimming at all. 

You can never have too many credit cards or watches. 

Smiling in photos is not allowed, but your taxidermy can sport the occasional gaping mouth. This should not be done liberally.
