Russia was a country on Earth, which had spanned a large area of Europe and Asia. Along with the United States of America, it bordered directly against the International Date Line.


In 1917, the ruler of the country, the tsar, was overthrown and replaced by a communist government under Vladimir Lenin. Russia was a communist state until the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991. (ENT: "Storm Front"; VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

In an alternate timeline, Vladimir Lenin was assassinated in 1916. As a result, the Communist revolution never took place. The German invasion of the country in this alternate World War II was more successful than in the original timeline, succeeding in reaching and overrunning Moscow. However, by early 1940s Russians were trying to take back Moscow, which many Germans felt was because they were advancing too far too quickly in their military endeavors around the world. (ENT: "Storm Front")

Pavel Chekov was born in Russia in 2245. Irina Galliulin, with whom Chekov was romantically involved, was also of Russian descent. In early 2375, Worf and Miles O'Brien talked about Worf's childhood in Russia. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?", "The Way to Eden"; DS9: "Image in the Sand")
