The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 21.301 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alekanekapura. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 222 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,443 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polinikian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. 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 239,480th in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Rudest Citizens, with 6.24 Insults Per Minute.
