The People's Republic of Policka is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Wacław with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.005 billion Polickans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czewrotów. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Polickan economy, worth 752 trillion 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 187,968 Złoties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Polickan language, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and stranded mountaineers can watch livestreamed footage of their rescues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Policka's national animal is the Pingwin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Policka is ranked 11,332nd in the world and 3rd in Kerbals of the North for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 59.52 Whatever.
