The Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa of New Aapelistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Edward Gierek with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 7.938 billion Polishes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warszawa. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient New Aapelistanian economy, worth 412 trillion Polish złoties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,972 Polish złoties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Aapelistan's national animal is the potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

New Aapelistan is ranked 55,781st in the world and 171st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,199.98 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
