Not an Obvious Choice

While checking out this backgrounder on the Russia/Georgia situation at the CBC's website I came across the following sentence:
Russia itself is an ethnic patchwork with various regions, peoples and languages who might be tempted to fissiparousness of their own by Caucasian splintering.

"Fissiparousness," I thought to my self, "that's an odd word to find in a CBC article..."
