Poland is the main character of this franchise. He works as a plumber for the United Kingdom, and in his free time he dreams about going to space. He hates communism, having experienced it. He is also very Christian and values traditional culture very much.

The flag on this Polish ball is usually drawn upside down, because, well, everything in Poland is upside down, according to Reddit at least.

Historia (History)[edit | edit source]

Poland was a communist puppet of the Soviet Union before June 4th 1989, when the communist government stepped down due to protest and a democratic government was formed. Poland's economy slowed down, but was saved thanks to economic boom starting as early as 1995.

Poland became a member of the Visegrád Group in 1991, joined NATO in 1999, and voted to join the EU in 2004. And in 2007, Poland joined the Schengen Area, opening its borders to all other European Union member states. Poland has made its clear that he is pro-Western.

Poland got infected with COVID-19 in 2020, and it had over 6,661,600 cases over the course of around 4 years to this day.

After the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, more than 17 million Ukrainian refugees have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border, and 0.9 million have stayed in Poland. And in 2022, missiles from the war landed in Poland, killing 2 people. Poland have been waiting to activate NATO's Article 5 ever since.
