Russia (ロシア Roshia?), also known as the Russian Federation, is the largest country in the world, covering most of northern Asia and part of eastern Europe.


In the early part of the 20th century, the actions of Grigori Rasputin caused a corruption in Russia's government. Following this, certain types of Magic were banned amongst Russia's Magic Side, however organizations such as Annihilatus would still use them.[1]

During the Cold War, Russia (then part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was in competition with the United States of America to develop esper powers, with both sides pouring money into the research of esper development for military use some time later during the conflict.[2]

An Academy City cooperative institution was present in Russia, running the world’s largest shopping mall, but was disbanded following a failed attempt to destroy Academy City and the decapitation of its leaders.[3]

Russia is one of the earliest of the currently increasing number of countries which have a space program.[4][5]
