The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 19.661 billion Polinikians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alekanekapura. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 191 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 9,716 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons. 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 159,597th in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Most Pro-Market, scoring 19 on the Rand Index.
