Victoria 3 – Tips to Start with Russia

Starter Tips to Russia

Russia would be a decent one. Large army to discourage people attacking you. Plus some early conquest if you are looking for it.

It also has most of the resources internally build your economy. Other then rubber, but will that is what colonization/armies are for.

Downsides being it has crap tax laws, and starts with serfdom which blocks improving some laws on the economy. But you can work to get rid of that over time.

I got lucky since passing establishing a Dedicated Police Force made my land owners faction happy enough that I could pass Serfdom Abolished without making them radical. Which also lowered their political power (since serfdom gives a +50% modifer to landowner political strength).

So a lot of early game was improving economy while weakening the Landowner faction over time mostly by getting rid of laws that gave them political power bonuses.

Hindsight I should have gotten rid of the Tsar earlier (since he was in the landowners party).
