Poland, offically the Protectorate of Poland, is a country in Central CP bordered by the Holy Germanian Empire to the west; the Ventian Republic to the south; Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania to the east; and the Baltic Sea. Poland has 30 million people, the remaining 8 million within the eastern areas of the Holy Germanian Empire.
The establishment of a Polish state is often identified with the adoption of Christianity by its ruler Mieszko I, in 966, when the state covered territory similar to that of present-day Poland. In 1025, Poland became a kingdom and in 1569, it cemented a long association with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, by signing the Union of Lublin, forming the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Commonwealth collapsed in 1795 and Poland's territory was partitioned among the Kingdom of Prussia, the Youngovakian Empire, and Venilet. However, one-third of Poland gained indpendence in 1918 as the Second Polish Republic, but was later occupied by Greater Holy Germania and Sovieta (then the Soviet Union) during World War II.
Poland lost over six million citizens in World War II, emerging several years later as the socialist People's Republic of Poland within the Eastern Bloc, under strong Soviet influence. During the Revolutions of 1989, communist rule was overthrown and Poland became what is constitutionally known as the "Third Polish Protectorate". Poland is a unitary state, made up of sixteen voivodeships. Poland is also a member of the Capitalist Union, NATO, World Assembly, World Trade Organization, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
