Svalbard 2022

Svalbard (Spitsbergen) is an island territory in the Arctic Ocean, administered by Norway. It lies approximately 1000 km (621 miles) from the northernmost point of mainland Europe and is quite cold. Alongside with polar bears, they are home to seals, reindeer, scientific research facilities, coal mines and, last but not least, a pair of breweries.

and Lenin heads oversee the smooth implementation of Stakhanovite coal mining standards.
