In Russia won the Red Army against the White armies. The Swedish-Finnish Soviet Republic was too fragmented, which contributed to the White forces victories in Sweden and Finland. Nevaburg, with the support of the Russian Soviet Republic meant a victory for the Council Republic . The countryside was mainly Finnish speaking with Ingrians in the west. The city was threefold Russian, Finnish and Swedish-speaking population. It was natural to change the name of the Council Republic to Nevaburg and equally natural that Nevaburg joined the Soviet Union as a sub republic.





Year 1940

The Soviet Union and Nazi Germany shared northern Europe. Sweden came under German occupation, while Finland resist the Russian attack and cedes only easten parts of Karelia Karelia. Kola peninsula is occupied by the Soviet Union.

Year 1918

In the early 1900s, it seemed natural that the Swedish kingdom was part of the central European axis with the German Empire and Austria-Hungary as the other parts.

As a natural entourage was a Swedish declaration of war against the Entente. The idea was conquering territory and exploration in Siberia under Swedish leadership. The war was a disaster and the result were both Finland and Norway obtained independence. The Finns wanted to draw the line after the language border but finally the historic border was determined. Finland also received the important Carlsburg area. In the west the Narvik area had long been linked to Sweden and the important Lappland county in north

The Russian revoultionen spread to Carlsburg and further on to the rest of Sweden and Finland. A joint Swedish-Finnish Council Republic was formed and Carlsburg was renamed Nevaburg. At the end of 1918 the Swedish-Finnish Council Republic reach it´s maximum extent
