After DoomsdayEdit

The nuclear winter lasted between October 1962 and March 1963. A nuclear summer then lasted between April 1963 and September 1964. A moderate famine and a minor flu outbreak killed some people in both Pärnu city and Haapsalu city during 1963 and 1964. Many refugees, mostly from Tallinn, the Courland Peninsular and Riga, arrived between 1964 and 1967.

First ContactEdit

Present dayEdit


Agriculture was the chief occupation, with the principal crops being rye, barley, oats, wheat, flax, and potatoes. The islands are notoriously flat, as is both Haapsalu's and Pärnu's hinterland. They, like the hilly northern part of the Courland Peninsular, feature wooded dunes, covered with pine, fir, birch, and oak, with swamps and lakes, with farming localised on fertile on the patches that lie between.
