The Russians are a civilization in Civilization II.

ColorEdit

The Russians are a white civilization. A game including the Russians will not involve the Romans, Celts, or Incas.

LeadersEdit

Lenin and Catherine the Great (Civ2)
Main article: Leaders (Civ2)

The default male leader of the Russians is Lenin, the alias of Vladimir Ulyanov (1870–1924), the communist revolutionary and politician who overthrew the democratic government that overthrew the tsar in 1917 during the chaos of the First World War. As Russia was not remotely industrialized enough to be suitable for traditional Marxism, Lenin advocated an adaption that involved a vanguard communist party exerting dictatorial powers to force the country's further development. Experiments with state-controlled capitalism were undertaken but abandoned in favor of full state planning.

The default female leader is Catherine the Great (1729–1796), a German princess who overthrew her husband and presided over a Russian golden age, as Enlightenment policies and rapid military conquests were undertaken by noble favorites including Orlov, Potemkin, Suvorov, and Ushakov. She oversaw the partition of Poland and colonization of Alaska, but her accomplishments were achieved by increased exactions from the peasantry which led to several rebellions.

Russian leaders use governments' default titles except under monarchy and fundamentalism. A Russian king or queen is known as a "czar" (male) or "czarina" (female). A Russian high priest or priestess is known as a "patriarch" (male) or "matriarch" (female).

PersonalityEdit

The Russian AI is aggressive and militaristic.
