The Commonwealth of Polinikia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by tuhina nui with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 20.005 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alekanekapura. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Polinikian economy, worth 200 trillion tala a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 10,036 tala, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. 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 22,649th in the world and 3rd in Kataru Kur Gal for Largest Governments, scoring 24.74 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
