The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless population of 21.32 billion Polinikians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 43.3%, 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 10,450 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. 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 48,666th in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Most Developed, scoring 65.91 on the Human Development Index.
