Kareliaball is yet another autonomous republic of northwest Russia-icon Russiaball.


Kareliaball born as a 1-icon 1ball, adopted by Sweden-icon Swedenball and disputed with RussianEmpire-icon Russian Empireball. He was originally part of Finland-icon Finlandball until 1940 when the country was forced to secede Kareliaball to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball at the end of the Winter War. During the Continuation War, Karelia was reconquered by Finlandball, but Finnish troops were expelled from Karelia by Sovietball during the Karelian Offensive in late 1944. By the war's end, Kareliaball was handed right back over to Sovietball and was known as the Karelo-Finnish SSR-icon Karelo-Finnish SSRball until 1956. He continues to remain part of modern day Russia-icon Russiaball much to the dismay of Finlandball.
