The Russian Trade Federation is the official trading company of Russia
The Russian Trade Federation is headed by Tsars Mikhail Volkov and Vladimir Romanov

The Russian Trade Federation (or RTF) is Russia's largest joint-stock trade company. Operating out of Russia's imperial capital, St. Petersburg, the company provides an estimated revenue of 44,000,000 Rubles to the Russian economy, due to overseas world-wide trade.

The Russian Trade Federation was officially founded on February 17, 1745, by co-Tsars Vladimir Romanov and Mikhail Volkov. Currently, it is headed by Volkov.

Background and History

Prior to the rule of co-Tsars Romanov and Volkov, Russia's economy was struggling, having suffered through wars with Spain and the Ottoman Empire respectively. The Russian Trading Company, formerly founded by previous Tsar Venyamin Makmorgn, had grown weary of the continuing wars, and officially crashed in the winter of 1744.

Rather than strive to resurrect the fallen Russian Trading Company, the Tsars Volkov and Romanov agreed to do away with it all together, seeing that it would prove impossible to promote a company that had suffered so dearly. In addition, Tsar Romanov quoted that the Russian Trading Company "Reminded Russia too much of the grief they had suffered under Spanish influence", and keeping it would only increase that influence. It was for those reasons that on December 17, 1744, the Russian Trading Company was officially disbanded.

Going months without a strong company to drive their economy, Tsar Romanov proposed the construction of a newer, more advanced trading company to "start off fresh". For weeks he had planned it, but it was not until February 17, 1745, that he presented the idea to his co-Tsar, Mikhail Volkov. Volkov immediately agreed, and thus the Russian Trade Federation was born.

After the federation's birth, the Russian Imperial Court met to decide who would lead the Russian Trade Federation. Romanov recommended Volkov lead it, seeing now that Volkov is in charge of economic and judicial policies in Russia, while Romanov is focused on administrative properties.
