Poland is a country in Central Europe. It borders Germany to the west, Lithuania to the north, White Ruthenia to the east and Galicia-Lodomiera (part of Austria-Hungary) to the south.

History[edit]

Until the end of the Weltkrieg, there was no Poland. What had been Polish territory had been carved up between Austria, Russia and Prussia at the end of the 18th century, and in the face of scattered uprisings throughout the 19th those three nations continued to hold on to their Polish territory. Polish fortunes turned in 1916, though, with the Act of November 5th, where it was granted authonomy from the collapsing Russia. However, this triumph came with a bitter taste, as the election of a polish king was postponed again and again between 1921 and 1936 as Austria-Hungary and Germany squabbled about the nationality of a possible king and the exact status of a polish kingdom. Hence, the regency of Janusz Radziwill continues.

However, all hope of a polish kingdom is not over: the Ausgleich of 1937 is eagerly looked forward to in Warsaw as the time when the future of Poland is decided. However, certain forces in Warsaw are tired of beeing under the austro-german yoke, and looks towards their 'enslaved' brothers in Germany, Austria and the eastern states, hoping to one day create a kingdom for all Poles.
