‚Äú Anschluss zeit ‚ÄĚ
‚Äú Guten tag, Polen... ‚ÄĚ

Anschluss ūüĒä (or surprise anschluss, or anschlu√ü polen) (Which¬†translates to¬†annexation¬†or connection) is a running gag in the Polandball universe used to describe a countryball becoming a rectangle with small eyes (the "Anschluss eyes") before proceeding to invade and/or annex another countryball.

Historically, it refers to the Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. The most common example of this is Germany-iconGermanyball becoming ReichTime Reichtangle. Anschluss can also be used to describe a countryball with dominance in a certain skill.

Countryballs usually say Anschluss in a typewriter font like Courier New. The phrase is infrequently followed by zeit (meaning 'time').

Anschlussed countryballs don't die. Anschlussed countryballs are wrapped somewhere inside the body of the countryball that anschlussed them. From time to time these countryballs revolt from inside the body in an attempt to gain freedom or they are rescued by another countryball that infiltrated in the body of whoever captured them. When that happens, the countrytangle begins to regress back to its normal form. This process is known as Balkanization.

There are anschluss forms for other countries, though not all of them are necessarily rectangles; some, like Singapore-icon Tringapore, become pyramids or cones while others like Kazakhstan-icon Kazakhbrick and Nepal-icon NepalRawr become sawruses and squares respectively. And Israel-icon Israelcube, because of Jewish physics, becomes a four-dimensional tesseract, the only such countryball (or cube, rather) which breaks the rule against countryballs being higher than two-dimensional. Anschluss form is one of the few exceptions to the rule against countryballs not being any other shapes than a ball. Some countryballs have more than one anschluss form, notably Chile-icon Chileball, who can turn into a Chileworm worm.

Countryballs' anschluss modes

For others see here

  • African Union-icon African Unionball - Unites all 8-icon 8balls in his clay to become¬†African Union-icon (tangle) African Uniontangle.¬†He will remove civil war and poverty from his clay and become a powerful superpower to rival the China-iconRussia-iconUSA-icon other three superpowers. If he feels particularly vengeful for slavery, he may instead decide to anschluss them as payback.¬†Poland-icon Polandball however will be an entirely different story as any confrontation with him will result in him joining up with Lithuania-icon Lithuaniaball and becoming the¬†Poland-Lithuania-icon Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth¬†in order to defend himself ruining African chance of domination so WATCH OUT AFRICA! You don't want Hussars in Africa.
  • Alaska-icon Alaskaball -With the adoption of Trump's politics. The Alaskans declare themselves to be the best state of America and unites the Population to become the Alaskan Republicsphere . He will then proceed to¬†remove¬†JustinTrudeau-icon¬†Justin Trudeau for being weak, adopt Rightwing Conservative ideology and proceed then¬†to sign an agreement wiyth Greenland-icon Greenlandball by forcing him to man up and join him, before removing Turkey-icon kebab, socialism, Communism-icon commie, and political correctness from the clays of all Denmark-iconFaroe-iconFinland-iconIceland-iconNorway-iconSweden-icon Nordicballs by forcibly uniting them into Kalmardickytangle-icon Scandinaviatangle as his puppet and enforcer who will remove the aforementioned from the clays of other European countryalls as well. Afterward, Antarctica-icon Antarcticaball and Argentine Antarctica-iconAustralian Antarctica-iconBritish Antarctica-iconChilean Antarctica-iconFrench Southern and Antarctic Lands-iconRoss Dependency-iconPeter I Island-icon all currently active international territorial claims on his clay will be anschlussed as well, enabling Alaskasphere to dominate both poles of the Earth. He will follow Donald Trump's policy¬†Donald Trump-icon Make USAball Great Again. THIS IS ALL FOR YOU, DAD! RussianEmpire-icon
  • Arab League-icon Arab Leagueball - Unites all Arab countries to become United States of Arabiatangle. If he eliminates Israel-icon Israelcube, gets rid of sectarian and tribal divides and solves ethnic and religious problems, he will revive pan-Arabism. If he doesn't unite Arab countries to become United States of Arabiatangle, he will become Arab Uniontangle similar to EU-icon EUball.
  • OIC-icon OICball - Unites all Islamic countries to become Caliphatetangle. If he removes ISIS-icon jihad from his clay, he will become a superpower unto himself built on oil and slavery unless he reaches peak oil. If he doesn't remove jihad, he will become¬†ISIS-icon (tangle) ISIStangle¬†and declare a holy war on all Christian countryballs with the ultimate goal of destroying EU-icon EUball, USA-icon USAball and other Western countries. Poland-icon Polandball however will be an entirely different story as any confrontation with him will result in him joining up with Lithuania-icon Lithuaniaball and becoming the¬†Poland-Lithuania-icon Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth¬†in order to defend himself. If he tries this with Russia-icon Russiaball it will result in him becoming Russian Empire-icon (tangle) Russian Empiretangle to purge all kebab from his clay. This may also cause Mongolia-icon Mongoliaball to become Mongolia-icon (tangle) Mongolian Empiretangle and Kazakhstan-icon Kazakhbrick to become Khanate of Kazakh-icon Kazakh Khanatesquare, in which case they will team up to re-ravage all Middle Eastern territories to remove jihad. So he had better play his cards carefully, or he will end up being completely removed from the face of the earth.
  • Argentina-icon Argentinaball - Becomes Argentinetangle-icon Second Argentine Confederationtangle. Removes Paraguay-icon Paraguayball, Uruguay-icon Uruguayball, Falklands-icon Falklandsball, Bolivia-icon Boliviaball and possibly Chile-icon Chileball by anschlussing.

Would 100% ally with Germany ( an awake Reichtangle) or even join him to combat Poland.¬†Poland-icon Polandball however will be an entirely different story as any confrontation with him will result in him joining up with Lithuania-icon Lithuaniaball and becoming the¬†Poland-Lithuania-icon Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth¬†in order to defend himself resulting in something pretty ugly.

  • Brazil-icon Brazilball ‚Äď becomes Braziltangle-icon Huetangle and hues his way to victory.

Since Trudeau is re-elected with a minority government, Canadaball will need approval from the conservatives or the NDP.¬†If Trudeau is kicked out in a No-Confidence motion, the Conservatives¬†will¬†remove Trudeau for being an idiot. However if Trudeau fails to convince Alaskaball to submit to his demands., USAball will cause Alaskaball¬†to turn into¬†Russian America-icon Tsardom of Alaskasphere¬†in order to defend himself. and proceed to mercilessly¬†kill JustinTrudeau-icon¬†Justin Trudeau and have the Conservatives take over.

In response to this Spainball will go completely berserk and attempt to holocaust all Cataloniaballs in her clay. Catalan Republictangle will join¬†forces with Basque-icon Basqueball¬†in retaliation, causing Basqueball to become EuskaraUFO in the process, and together they will take out their¬†revenge on Spain-icon Spainball¬†and France-icon Franceball,¬†which may result in them anschlussing some of their territories.
  • Chile-icon Chileball - Becomes Chileworm Chileworm and takes all the coasts and anschlusses Peru-icon Peruball, Bolivia-icon Boliviaball or also Argentina-icon Argentinaball. If he anschlusses Boliviaball, then he will (kinda) get his coast back which means he can into sea again.
  • China-icon Chinaball - Becomes the United China-icon (tangle) People's Republic of Chinatangle and begins to use the world's Huawei cellphone to hack into every nation¬†who¬†has a bad relationship with either China or Russia. China then focuses on PLAN 2. Since the Chinese do not rely on gaining territory, he will focus on anchlussing their economy that they will eventually fall and their people will starve. He will get all the G20 members shocked by becoming so¬†popular that he will take control of the world's stock markets and economy. He will ensure that both the¬†economies of¬†¬†Taiwan-icon Taiwanball,¬†Mongolia-icon Mongoliaball, Vietnam-icon Vietnamball, Thailand-icon Thailandball, Myanmar-icon Myanmarball, Laos-icon Laosball, Cambodia-icon Cambodiaball, Malaysia-icon Malaysiaball, Singapore-icon Tringapore, Indonesia-icon Indonesiaball, Philippines-icon Philippinesball,Brunei-icon Bruneiball, East Timor-icon East Timorball, Palau-icon Palauball, Guam-icon Guamball, Northern Mariana Islands-icon Northern Mariana Islandsball, North Korea-icon North Koreaball, South Korea-icon South Koreaball and Japan-icon Japanball¬†will be under his mercy.

In any case it will start a massive Economic Recession and a GREAT DEPRESSION¬†Who will win? Russia will 100% back China with its economic sanctions against those who disagree.

IF ALL ABOVE FAILS. China will operate PLAN 3 and launch a Corona-Virus-based infection into any nation who hates him as mentioned above. Those who are under his list will be TOTALLY UNDER WUHAN'S Grip of Control.
