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

Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball is a historical countryball. His 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) He was killed and crushed by his son Russian SFSR (old)-icon.png Russian SFSRball (aka Soviet-icon.png Sovietball) during the 1917 Russian Revolution-icon.png Russian Revolution.

In some comics, especially those made in Russia, Russian Empireball is instead a Russian Empire-icon (tangle).png Czarist Russian Empiretangle (or rather Rustangle), similar to ReichTime.png Reichtangle in appearance and personality. It is argued to this day whether he should be a ball, or a Russian Empire-icon (tangle).pngtangle.

History

Conquest and Expansion (1721-1801)

Russian Empireball was born in 1721 and replaced his father Tsardom of Russia-icon.png Tsardom of Russiaball that year. He 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 he 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. He 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 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 him 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)

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, he 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 his route home at Maloyaroslavets and forced him 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 his son Russian America-icon.png Russian North Americaball to USA-icon.png USAball, who renamed him Alaska-icon.png Alaskaball, in 1867, something he would come to regret.

But Russiaball had 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 his life. He also attempted to abolish serfdom at this point.

Russia in Revolution and Collapse (1881-1917)

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 himself with the Industrial Revolution. By 1900, Russiaball was still largely agricultural and undeveloped, despite having vast reserves of untapped resources. He was not too successful in imperialism, despite being in the Boxer expeditionary force of 1900, he lost the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-05, after having his fleets sunk at Port Arthur, and Tshuima Straits. His accidental son Soviet-icon.png Sovietball, born in 1903 as Bolshevikball, used these failures as excuses to lampoon his father.

In 1905, Russiaball had a partial breakdown, which resulted in him cutting himself, and also forming a new parliament (the Duma) which had little power. In 1907 he 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 him attempt to interfere with the Balkan Wars, in favour of his Slavic brothers. However, in 1914 the Great War saw the strong but unprepared Russiaball suffer many wounds at the Masurian Lakes and Tannenburg battles. He had more luck against the incompetent Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, invading his Galicia clay, as well as Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball trying to invade him in winter, and held the front at a heavy cost for two years, until something inside him snapped in 1917. From March 8 to March 16, 1917, he had a personality change, resulting in him becoming a republican ball, but his son Bolshevikball was still fed up and used his father's weak state to murder him and take his place on November 7, 1917 during the October Revolution. He 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.
