I agree. IMO this is probably the weakest part of the whole, otherwise extremely interesting and enjoyable, alternate universe Ill Bethisad. Russia definitely deserves a better treatment. The idea (what would have happened if Russia had lost the war with Japan in 1905) is good, but should be worked out differently, because this is completely unrealistic, indeed.
