According to what the nation reports, on the night of August 10, 2012, the people in the country known as the Russian Federation reported seeing mysterious green waves in an S-shaped pattern moving all over the skies of the nation. Millions witnessed the event which has since been dubbed “The Night of Changing Times”. It is called such because when the light show ended and the government tried contacting the rest of the world, they found out that they had been transported to the year 1912.
The European empires at the time were not happy by the fact a republic out of nowhere replaced the Russian Empire before hand, and therefore, didn’t recognize the Federation as the real Russian government. The Russian Royal Family also seemingly disappeared with the empire too. The Russian Federation didn’t control all of the old empire's territory but instead Russia proper, but as well as some Japanese and German land as well. The other regions soon fell to chaos when they learned their former masters were gone. The Federation soon moved to take control of the lands and made them the freedom to govern themselves but were also made a part of Russia as well.
Japan then made the fatal mistake of declaring war on Russia, to take back their land. The war, however, ended in Russian victory in only a week, because of Russia’s heavily advanced weaponry such as jet fighter airplanes, tanks, and assault rifle machine guns. Because of Japan’s loss in the war, they also lost all gains they had made with a previous war with the Russian Empire. This made the Europeans (Particularly Germany, which wanted back the remainder of Eastern Prussia) have second thoughts about invading Russia. Russia, however, decided to amend ties with their former adversary and have promised them lands in Southeast Asia as compensation for the loss of their empire.
Seeing that they were able to subdue Japan so quickly, Russia began using their superior military might to expand its influence throughout the world. They took advantage of the chaos going on in China to annex lands and make allies as well, invaded Persia in order to have access to the Indian Ocean, built alliances with some of the Balkan nations against the Austria-Hungary, and have even began making claims on the whole of Antarctica.
The nations of Europe were unhappy at the fact that Russia was asserting their power so widely over the world and taking their spheres of influence away. Seven nations - which included such powers as the United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria-Hungary - signed the European Defense League alliance (EDL) to form a block against the bear of the east.
On New Year’s Day, 1913, A Serbian terrorist organization called the Black Hand (Which had been suspected to have been given money and weapons from and Russia since November, 1912 and Serbia before hand) attacked the Austrian emperor and killed him. The EDL used this as an excuse to invade Serbia and Russia just day later. Even though the Russians didn’t quite expect an attack from them, the army soon reorganized itself and attacked the invaders. Despite the fact that the EDL had outnumbered the Russian army by a ridiculous, and they had crudely reversed engineered some of the Russian weaponry they managed to steal, By mid January, they were pushed out of Russian territory and was on the run.
By the end of February, the Russians had begun attacking Berlin and Austria-Hungary was being dismantled by revolutions from minorities and on going attacks from their invaders. But the EDL had one more trick up their sleeve. During the first few days of the war, they sent a Russian communist revolutionary from Switzerland onto a train to Moscow, and try to start a revolution there. That man’s name was Vladimir Lenin. Because he had technically been the leader of Russia in the time before the Russian Federation was transported to 1912, his influence was great, yet controversial among the Russian people.
Eventually, He managed to start a communist revolution within the Russian Federation, which broke out into civil war. Despite not having much support from the people themselves, he gathered support a small group of like-minded military officials. Because of this, Russia had to pull some of its forces from the front to fight the communist. After over a year of fighting, however, the communist were defeated, but not before creating leaving many Russian cities ruined, over two million dead, and making one last stand at St. Petersburg, which left the city udderly wasted. Lenin was later arrested, tried, and again exiled.
Meanwhile, in Western Europe, Russia had already finished the siege of London, which led to the surrender of Britain, and the end of the Russo-European War, as it is now called. The Treaty of Brussels was signed on May 5, 1914. It stated that the European powers were to recognize all of Russia’s and their allies gains made since they came in 1912, give independence to some of their colonies, make some of the aforementioned European nations clients to Russia, and dissolve the EDL.
Thus, up until now, Russia is now the “Superpower” of the world, involving itself with all matters of world politics.
