Polish People's Republicball (aka Communist Polandball) was a socialist nation that existed from 1944 to 1989. His predecessor was Second Polish Republicball and his successor is Poland-icon Polandball (of course as a member in the EU). Soviet-icon Soviet satellite state (thanks for AK-47 <3). Then the Solidarity kicked him out and made modern Poland-icon Polandball (Still, not real Commonwealth or just a Great Poland!!!). Also, we can into invading western Europe (Thanks baguette!). One time he was asshole to Czech-icon Checzechoslovakiaballk, because he has invaded him in 1968 together with East Germany-icon DDR and Soviets. In 1980 Solidarność made some protests against him, so in 1981 he declared Martial law to stop him, but it hasn't worked. In 1989 he became capitalist and the first nation to break out of Sovietball's rule, and after him Hungary-icon Hungaryball had democratic election, Romania-icon Romaniaball has killed his dictator, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball also had election, East Germany-icon East Germanyball tore down his wall and then got anschlussed, and Soviets has collapsed.

He is of course, a communist (which the Soviet make him doing so for good purpose suka), and tries to escape by doing protest as he feels brutally insulted by this ideology. In that case, he thanked Palestine-icon Palestineball for giving his people through his cause against the Zionist entity.

Polandball suffered tremendous economic losses during World War II. In 1939, Poland had 35.1 million inhabitants, but the census of 14 February 1946 showed only 23.9 million inhabitants. The losses in national resources and infrastructure amounted to 38%. Compared to Western European nations, including Germany, Polandball was still mostly an agrarian country. The implementation of the immense tasks involved with the reconstruction of the country was intertwined with the struggle of the new government for the stabilisation of power, made even more difficult by the fact that a considerable part of society was mistrustful of the communist government. The occupation of Poland by the Red Army and the support the Soviet Union had shown for the Polish communists was decisive in the communists gaining the upper hand in the new Polish government. Poland was under Soviet control, both directly (Red Army, NKVD, Soviet concentration camps in Poland, deportations to the SU) and indirectly (NKVD created the Polish political police UB).

As control of the Polish territories passed from occupying forces of Nazi Germany to the subsequent occupying forces of the Soviet Union, and from the Soviet Union to the Soviet-imposed puppet satellite state, Poland's new economic system was forcibly imposed and began moving towards a radical, communist centrally planned economy. One of the first major steps in that direction involved the agricultural reform issued by the Polish Committee of National Liberation government on 6 September 1944. All estates over 0.5 km² in pre-war Polish territories and all over 1 km² in former German territories were nationalised without compensation. In total, 31,000 km² of land were nationalised in Poland and 5 million in the former German territories, out of which 12,000 km² were redistributed to peasants and the rest remained in the hands of the government. (Most of this was eventually used in the collectivization and creation of sovkhoz-like Państwowe Gospodarstwo Rolne (PGR).) However, the collectivization of Polish farming never reached the same extent as it did in the Soviet Union or other countries of the Eastern Bloc.

Nationalisation began in 1944, with the pro-Soviet government taking over industries in the newly acquired territories along with the rest of the country. As nationalization was unpopular, the communists delayed the nationalization reform until 1946, when after the 3xTAK referendums they were fairly certain they had total control of the state and could deal a heavy blow to eventual public protests. Some semi-official nationalisation of various private enterprises had begun also in 1944. In 1946, all enterprises with over 50 employees were nationalised, with no compensation to Polish owners. The Allied punishment of Germany for the war of destruction was intended to include large-scale reparations to Poland. However, those were truncated into insignificance by the break-up of Germany into East and West and the onset of the Cold War. Poland was then relegated to receive her share from the Soviet-controlled East Germany. However, even this was attenuated, as the Soviets pressured the Polish Government to cease receiving the reparations far ahead of schedule as a sign of 'friendship' between the two new communist neighbors and, therefore, now friends. Thus, without the reparations and without the massive Marshall Plan implemented in the West at that time, Poland's postwar recovery was much harder than it could have been.
