The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 20.929 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 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 210 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,065 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Polinikia flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and judges who serve for life or good behavior can expect to stay for a week. 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 225,351st in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 31.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
