I hate to tell you this, but Russia isn't everywhere...
And England is even less so...
Now that's a comment with no point except nastiness.
Well, Russia is a tad bigger, but of course it's outside tht BT. . .
Comparitively speaking, what was the population of the British Empire at
its height, and the Russian Empire at its heigh?
There is a vast difference between the Russian empire, the
preponderance of which had main culture and language and the British
empire which was just a collection of some dominions and mostly
colonial setups. The majority of population of the British empire
were Indians, Chinese, Malays, Arabs and blacks (of various tribes)
while the majority of the population of the Russian empire were
Russian (either traditional or white).
By 1922 the British Empire held sway over about 458 million people, one-quarter of the world's population at the time, and covered more than 33,700,000 km2 (13,012,000 sq mi), almost a quarter of the Earth's total land area
The total population of the Russian Empire was recorded to be 125,640,021 people
Then there's a pile of stuff about the languages spoken in the Russian Empire (wiki):
By native tongue
The most spoken languages, from which nationality was determined were:
Russian language: 83,933,567
Great Russian (i.e. Russian): 55,667,469
Little Russian (i.e. Ukrainian): 22,380,551
White Russian (i.e. Belarusian): 5,885,547
Other Slavic tongues: 224,859
Lithuanio-Latvian tongues: 3,094,469
Zhmud (Samogitian): 448,022
Romance tongues: 1,143,000
Moldavian and Romanian: 1,121,669
Germanic tongues: 1,813,717
Yiddish (ru:Еврейский): 5,063,156
Kartvelian (South Caucasian) tongues: 1,352,535
Caucasian mountain tongues: 1,091,782
Other Indo-European languages: 2,190,597
Tajik and Persian: 382,120
Finnish tongues: 3,502,147
Turkic-Tatar tongues: 13,373,867
Uzbek and Sart languages: 1,695,189
Other languages: 925,018 (from this 57,000 Chinese)
Total Russian Empire: 125,640,021
So, like the British Empire, it comprised various languages. Only 83 million spoke Russian, plus the 55m who spoke "Great Russian".
Population of British Empire at its height: 458 million people
Population of Russian Empire in 1897: 125 million people
