    The secret of politics? Make a good treaty with Russia.
    — Otto von Bismarck

    The Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball is an historical countryball. Its clay once stretched from Europe all the way across the continents of Asia into North America, and even one time in Africa for a short moment in 1881 (Sagallo, Russia's Short-Lived Cossack Colony In Africa).

    It was murdered and destroyed completely by its child, the Russian SFSR (old)-icon.png Russian SFSRball (aka Soviet-icon.png Sovietball) during the 1917 Russian Revolution-icon.png Russian Revolution. At its greatest extent, its size was 22.8 million square kilometers, so it is about 33% bigger than its present self.

    History[edit | edit source]

    Conquest and Expansion (1721-1801)[edit | edit source]

    Russian Empireball was born in 1721 and replaced its parent Tsardom of Russia-icon.png Tsardom of Russiaball that year. It descended from Slavs-icon.png Slavsball and Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball and by 1721, already had a vast domain stretching from the Baltic Sea to Central Siberia.

    In 1739, Russian Empireball and Austrian Empireball tried to gangbang Ottoman Empireball in the Austro-Russian-Turkish War but it somehow beat them both and the war became inconclusive.

    In the 1760s, Imperial Russiaball explored and conquered the Siberian and Central Asia plains and steppes with little difficulty or resistance from the local 1-icon.png 1ball tribes that lived there. It even went across the Bering Straits into Alaska and North America.

    In 1774, the Russian Empireball took Crimea. Up until 1792 at the Treaty of Jassy, the Russians completely beat up the Ottomans.

    In 1772, 1790, and 1795 Russiaball participated in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealthball Poland-Lithuania-icon.png all three partitions of Polandball and Lithuaniaball's clay with Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Kingdom of Prussiaball and Austria-icon.png Austriaball.

    Poland-Lithuania-icon.png Polandball's 1791 uprising against it was crushed with ease, and the Kingdom of France-icon.png French Revolution saw Russiaball from the Armed League of Neutrality of the North in 1799, in favour of trade with France-icon.png Franceball rather than UK-icon.png UKball. The League was disbanded in 1801.

    European Affairs (1801-1881)[edit | edit source]

    In 1806, France-icon.png Franceball had invaded Poland-icon.png Polandball's former clay, and after a disagreement with Imperial Russiaball, who had just conquered Finland-icon.png Finlandball in 1809, it invaded Russiaball's clay in 1812 and reached Moscow-icon.png Moscow, but Russiaball retreated and burned it to the ground with a scorched earth strategy.

    Russiaball blocked its route home at Maloyaroslavets and forced it into conflict at Borodino. Franceball retreated safely, but by 1814, Russiaball was in the coalition that was advancing upon Paris. In 1815, after Kingdom of France-icon.png Franceball's nationalistic fever calmed down, Russiaball was included in the Concert of Europe and became interested in the Balkans.

    In 1853, after falling out with Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball, Imperial Russiaball threatened an invasion of Constantinople, which alarmed UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball, who sent their armies to the Crimea to help Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

    UK-icon.png UKball was mortally wounded at Sevastopol-icon.png Sevastopol, but the fortress fell, and Russiaball agreed to disarm the Black Sea in 1856. Meanwhile, Russiaball sold its child Russian America-icon.png Russian North Americaball to USA-icon.png USAball, who renamed it Alaska-icon.png Alaskaball, in 1867, something it would come to regret.

    But Russiaball was not finished with the Balkans. In 1877 the Russo-Turkish war broke out, and in 1878 UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball stepped in again, drawing up new borders for the clay there.

    Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball was forced to retreat from Eastern Europe, and United Principalities-icon.png Romaniaball and Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball born. In 1881, Russiaball survived an assassination attempt that would change its life. It also attempted to abolish serfdom at this point.

    Russia in Revolution and Collapse (1881-1917)[edit | edit source]

    In 1883, Russiaball got a new flag and started to expand south-east into Qing-icon.png Qing Chinaball's clay, taking Manchuriaball and Mongolia-icon.png Mongolia in the 1890s. Russiaball started to build the Trans-Siberian Railroad and also attempted to reform itself with the Industrial Revolution.

    It also started a colony called Sangallo in 1893, but it was stopped quickly France-icon.png Franceball. By 1900, Russiaball was still largely agricultural and undeveloped, despite having vast reserves of untapped resources. It was not too successful in imperialism, despite being in the Boxer expeditionary force of 1900.

    It lost the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-05, after having its fleets sunk at Port Arthur and Tshuima Straits. Its accidental child Soviet-icon.png Sovietball, born in 1903 as Bolshevikball, used these failures as excuses to lampoon its parent.

    In 1905, Russiaball had a partial breakdown, which resulted in it cutting itself and forming a new parliament (the Duma) which had little power. In 1907 it joined the Triple Entente with UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball, against the expanding German Empire-icon.png Imperial Germanyball, and 1912 saw it attempt to interfere with the Balkan Wars, in favour of its Slavic siblings.

    However, in 1914 the Great War saw the strong but unprepared Russiaball suffer many wounds at the Masurian Lakes and Tannenburg battles. It had more luck during Osowiec, where the Germans suffered heavy losses after the attack of the dead men, and also during the East invasion of Prussia, which resulted in an undecided outcome.

    It was also more successful against the incompetent Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, invading its Galicia clay, as well as Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball trying to invade it in winter, and held the front at a heavy cost for two years, until something inside it snapped in 1917.

    From March 8 to March 16, 1917, it had a personality change, resulting in it becoming a republican, but its child Bolshevikball was still fed up and used its parent's weak state to murder it and take its place on November 7, 1917, during the Russian Revolution-icon.png October Revolution. It became Russian SFSR (old)-icon.png R.S.F.S.Rball that year, and later after the Russian Civil War Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball in 1922.
