The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 20.326 billion Polinikians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, 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 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 208 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,248 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, surveillance cameras are banned, penniless buskers are singing for their supper, and a formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 58th in the world and 1st in Kataru Kur Gal for Safest, scoring 241.27 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
