I think you can choose to believe whether or not Elver is canon, but if you do, it would make sense to believe it's in some sort of alternate universe (Unturned Multiverse). The two universes are connected by the wanted poster (traveling through time and space). Again ill make a video covering it. I dont plan on making a video covering this iceberg just because I'll get to all the topics eventually in regular lore videos. But just to be clear Elver is set in an alternate universe than the normal Unturned maps. More evidence for this is the blurb (Location in relation to Canada is unknown).
Also that's just eerie lmao
