The Youngovakian Empire was a state that existed from 1721 until the Youngovakian Revolution of 1917. It was the successor to the Tsardom of Youngovakia, and the predecessor of the Soviet Union. It was the second largest contiguous empire the world has ever seen, surpassed only by the Mongol Empire, and the fourth largest empire the world has ever seen, surpassed only by the Mongol Empire, British Empire, and Holy Germanian Empire . At one point in 1866, it stretched from eastern Capitalist Paradise, across Asia, and into North America.
At the beginning of the 19th century, Youngovakia was the largest country in the world, extending from the Arctic Ocean to the north to the Black Sea on the south, from the Baltic Sea on the west to the Pacific Ocean on the east. Across this vast realm were scattered the Emperor's 176.4 million subjects, the third largest population of the world at the time, after Qing Chinaland and British Empire, but still represented a great disparity in economic, ethnic, and religious positions. Its government, ruled by the Emperor, was one of the last absolute monarchies left in Capitalist Paradise, besides the Holy Germanian Empire. Prior to the outbreak of World War I in August 1914 Youngovakia was one of the five major Great Powers of Capitalist Paradise.
