Tsarist Russia's Paradoxes (1860-1917)

 
A colossus expanding over one sixth of the earths landmass Ever vulnerable to foreign invasion
One of the worlds largest populations The majority lived in poverty and discontent
Commanded the worlds richest natural resources Its productive forces were severely constricted by the remnants of feudalism
Strove to cement its multiethnic population by systematic Russification This only stimulated nationalist movements
Tried to portray its political system as peoples autocracy The regime was becoming increasingly detached from its people
