World War III map

Russia is a country located in Northern Eurasia. It is the largest country and has one of the most victory points. Its immediate neighbors are Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan, and Georgia in Asia and Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, and Norway in Europe.

Most of its cities are concentrated on the European side of the country. Only three cities are located in Asia: Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, and Vladivostok. This makes the Asian side of the country difficult to defend.

Its in-game description reads: "An extremely large nation, spanning eleven time zones from Europe to Asia, the military victor of the last world war is enormous - as is the task of managing this behemoth of a nation. Comprised of a diverse landscape rich in resources, Russia is a force to be reckoned with. A word of advice: this nation is best suited for experienced players."
