History of the Svanskinahya People's Socialist Republic:

The first record of civilization in the Svanskinahya People’s Socialist Republic go back to the Turkish invasion of 1700, who created a citadel in this place to fight the Russian offensive to reclaim the territory.  The city was founded on the banks of the Volga river, which makes it the first port in the region for trade in minerals and cattle at the time. Hands back to the Russians in 1780, the town was razed (with the exception of walls and the church citadel) and rebuilt in the crowd in a Russian style. While expanding, the city, whose population has doubled in 10 years, becomes the capital of the region in 1810, attracting many farmer who came with the hope of finding better paid work. In 1860, the city was declared free and can be grown quiet, and still attracted many people from the  Russians' neighboring lands to come to Svanskinahya for work, and a better quality of life. In 1901, the inhabitants of the city rebels against the Russians and the Monarchs was shots in the streets.

general aspect of the city


The city was occupied during the Russian civil war of 1919 by the Red Army, and it became a region of the USSR. Later, the region began to industrialize and specialized in arms, making industrial capital of Russia from the south and east of the Black Sea.

In 1987, residents of Svanskinahya, and more strongly those of Kalmykia, had declared that they were deceived and abused by the capitalist government of the USSR and demand independence under which they continue to use the socialist model.   [skip a few years since this part of history is not important] In 2003, the region opened a line of commerce between Kalmykia and Simferopol in Maroanestra (ancient region) and once a match started Svanskinahya became the first supplier of oil, natural gas and military equipment of Maroanestra.

Svanskinahya's transportation system:

The region is an important river port of Goods (Ore. ..) but also a passenger, many Russians and people of Black Sea countries spend their holidays in Svanskinahya.

Among other ports, there is also an International Airport who have 4Terminals with one for freight,  with 3 runways, the airport can accommodate large aircraft such as Boeing747 and Airbus380. 

Noted an excellent rail network across the region and through the end of the line Rostov on Don (Russia) <-> Kalmykia. In addition to the rail network, Kalmykia has 3 tramways lines (1.5 for the time being are created in the game). the tram through the city for the pleasure of the travelers, while maintaining the old trains os 1950' while adding the comfort of today. Many bus lines are available and also a line of subway and study at this time. Regarding the road and highways (motorways) network, it is a bit outdated because it was built when Svanskinahya was part of the USSR, it was never updated.

Some view of the tramway and the city.
