In only 15 years after the horribly devastating nazi invasion with 27+ mln. perished and large part of its territory in ashes, Russia was the first nation in history of mankind to break through into space. Still the first in space today, even after decade of post-soviet chaos and poor management.
Not only that, Russia also helped greatly to improve American educational system by inspiring the infamous Sputnik crisis in early 60s. Yet NASA never really caught up, so now Russia generously gives them a ride. Why not.

Always feared and envied by the Western Cold War hawks and their poodles no matter what Russia does, because the West fears and envies everything they cannot swallow or control. Russia is repeatedly attacked and backstabbed only to patiently put offenders back in line and then spoon-feed them. Helped the French to discover their babysitting talents in 1812 and relieved Germans of their mental issues in 1945.

After each setback Russia emerges more powerful than before.
The first man in space was Russian. (And woman too)

A very, very large country with bears that match those of the bears in Canada. Everything is bigger in Russia. It is also very cold, and its winter once beat the Nazi army. People that live in Russia are called Russians and have cool accents, and say things like, "In America, you find where is Waldo. In Russia, Waldo find where is you!" And, "In Motherland, we drink vodka. Vodka make you strong, like Russian bear." Russia is a nice place, and is huge. If you go there, watch our for Communist Revolutions.
"Mother Russia will destroy you. It is also big. Australia, entire continent, fit inside Russia."

Russia is the newest should-be-continent in the is-continent of Asia. Russian men drink vodka and actually have it in their blood. The only water sources in Russia aren't water, but just more vodka. The entire should-be-continent of Russia is basically a battle royale.
American Dude: Hey, have you heard of Russia?
Russian Man: Yes, home country, comrade.
American Dude: Oh ok

Really, really big and cold country full of really proud and angry people. We get drunk a lot. People there are lazy but highly intelligent, and usually have short tempers and faces like potatoes... :( Strong military. We have never been conquered. Difficult to get along with but we party hard. Poccia pylet! lol :)
if they look angry and they're wearing galoshes with tights, they're probably Russian.

Russia is country spreading from western Europe to the east coast of Asia. It is the largest country in the world, and has proven to be a powerful force in history. The people have a unique pride and devotion to their country, and would give it all for their homeland.

Unlike popular American belief, the weather most in Russia is EXTREMELY nice. Yes it is cold in SIBERIA and the winter, but that's what winter is. In the summer, there is usually a good average of 70-85ΒΊF.

Also, even though Russia is known for it's vodka, that doesn't mean all anyone ever does is sit aorund drinking till their brains melt. It is true Russians enjoy a good drink, expecially some strong stuff at a family party, but they are not alcoholics.

I find the American fetish with Russian hats and accents really funny. :) To be perfectly honest, the hats they show in the movies must be 50 years old, and the accents aren't what true Russian accents sound like.
Strashna ne smert, strashna nevola!

RUSSIAN PRIDE! (I just had to put that in, because I would DIE for Russia!)

a country of people who cant look after them selves, yet want to rule the world. they invaded half of europe and prevented these countries from developing. once however the ussr did fall apart these countries were far behind from the rest of the world, and are now trying hard to catch up. when berlin was divided into the east and the west (the russians had the east and allies (uk, america etc.) had the west. after a couple of years the west was developing with new factories and opportunities for pleople, however the east- well many people tryed to get over the berlin wall because of the poverty and no development trying to look for a better life but were all shot.- this shows that the only thing russia can take care of is downing a shot of vodka.
jim- hey bob, what are the russians best at?
