Now, I have seen how some people, when they first see this site, assume it has some sort of nationalistic undertones, especially given the incorporation of Finland and the Baltic states into Novegrad. Quite simply, this was never my intent. As stated above, I wanted this alternative history to have a high degree of realism, and so it naturally would include many things that some people (including myself!) find distasteful. I am not trying to state that these regions are rightfully part of Russia (besides, since I've severed Novegrad off from Russia, why are these people seeing Novegrad as a Russian surrogate?). I realize, however, that part of this may be a flaw of how I've chosen to present this website
