Anschluss zeit
Guten tag, Polen...

Anschluss 🔊 (or surprise anschluss, or anschluß 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-icon.png Nazi annexation of Austria-icon.png Austriaball in the year 1938. The most common example of this is Germany-icon.png Germanyball becoming ReichTime.png Reichtangle. Anschluss can also be used to describe a country dominaball withnce 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.png Tringapore, become pyramids or cones while others like Kazakhstan-icon.png Kazakhbrick and Nepal-icon.png NepalRawr become sawruses and squares respectively. And Israel-icon.png Israelcube, because of Jewish physics, becomes a four-dimensional tesseract, the only such countryball 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.png Chileball, who can turn into a Chileworm.gif worm.
