>We got a leader who continued policies of ethnic nationalism in a vast multi-ethnic empire, thus causing needless conflict and friction between peoples in his empire rather than working to meld them into a cohesive whole
>Develops only military industries while leaving civilian industries undeveloped
>Got involved with a war with a small but competent nation on a volcanic island chain and lost.
>Viemently opposes any form of democracy or a constitution despite widespread unrest until there is a violent revolution and even then only gives the smallest token concessions because he wants to pretend that he's Peter the Great
>Got into a stupid war with the Austrio-hungarian empire with plans on winning it with a plan with numerous citations from Zapp Brannigan's Big Book of War
>His invasion force gets bogged down in bogs, runs out of bullets in 6 months and gets beaten back by the Germans, who had a smaller population and were also fighting the British and the French in the west
>Abdicates once everyone gets fed up with his bullshit and hates him
>Said bullshit allowed for the Communists to take over and resulted in a devestating civil war in which millions died, among them being the dumbass
>Is remembered as a martyr and a saint by Monarchists.

Not really, no. He was always really big on industrialization and modernization of the nation, see the Transsiberian railway.

The Russian Empire's industrial capacity was growing quickly in the same sense that modern African country's industrial capacity is growing quickly, they had so little of it that any expansion was a big deal. Remember that the majority of Russia's population (more than 80%) was still rural at the time.
