The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 19.696 billion Polinikians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alekanekapura. The average income tax rate is 17.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 192 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 9,766 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polinikia's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Polinikia is ranked 208,067th in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -65.13 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
