About the meme

Main article: Polandball (meme)

Polandball is an internet meme originated on Krautchan by the user FALCO to troll the Polish user Wojak for his far-from-good English. After that, the meme spread over Krautchan to later get into the three main Polandball communities, Reddit Polandball, Facebook Polandball and our Wiki.

The countryballs

Main article: What is a Countryball?

The countryballs are a geographical entity (country, city, region, organization...) or a certain population (i.e.: Kurds, Assyrians, ...) that are portrayed by their flag in a circle shape with the littler circles inside, the eyes. The shape isn't always a ball:

  • Jewish characters are portrayed as cubes (because "jewish physics", a Nazi idea)
    • Michigan, instead, is a cube because its motto is "Circumspice" which sounds similar to circumsize
  • Singapore is a triangle (because of the Malaysia-Indonesia-Singapore triangle)
  • Kazakhstan is a brick (because when Krautchan flairs were changed to Polandballs, Kazakh rested a flag for a while)
    • Kazakh divisions and ancestors are so bricks too
  • Nepal and Ohio keep their flag shapes adding monster teeth and angered eyes
    • Also some Indian former countries like Maratha or Mughal may be portrayed as monster
  • UK must always wear a top hat and a monocle
  • USA must always wear sunglasses
  • Poland bicolor flag must always be upside-down
    • To distinguish Monaco from Poland, it can wear sunglasses or monocle
    • To distinguish Indonesia from Poland, it can wear an Asian rice hat
  • The Fourth Reich is a rectangle (reason is still unknown)
  • Omsk city is a bird, to reference to the Winged Doom meme

Caveballs

Main article: Caveballs

Ancient civilizations that never had a vexillum for obvious reasons can be represented by certain pool balls (sometimes with the number modified). The most used is 8ball, that represents Negroids.

Planetballs

Main article: Planetballs

Planetballs is a sub-meme where the balls represent the planets and the other celestial bodies more than the countries (that are still allowed). The planetballs are drawn like the celestial body with two eyes added. The most used Planetball is Earthball.

Tutorials

Here there's a list of tutorials you can follow to train up: 1

Beside Facebook Polandball allows everything, our wiki doesn't allow the use of circle tool (and other tools) and copy-pasting elements from flags (shields, animals,...).

Reddit Polandball, instead, is more strict since it doesn't allow any city beside first level subdivisions and city-states and Omsk bird. Also, it doesn't allow any unsourced flag. That's why you might see Ancient Egypt represented by a modern Egypt or by Australoids.

What pages you can do on Wiki

  • Real countries (already made)
  • Real-existing subdivisions and cities
  • Historical countries
  • Historical minor countries (tiny HRE states...)
  • Historical planned countries (if sourced)

What pages you have to NOT create on Wiki

  • Everything fictional (unless it is valid in a community outside the Wiki)
    • If has a Facebook page, you can create it BUT you MUST cite the link in the page

Categories, templates, userboxes

All this should be allowed by an admin before. If you want to request something and you aren't sure it's allowed, ask an admin

Categories

  • There are already a lot of duplicate categories. Before creating a new one, ensure that it doesn't already exist

Templates

  • Make sure that the template doesn't already exist.
  • You can create navboxes about: Actual recognised countries, cultures.

Userboxes

  • You can create a new one if you know how to do
  • It must mainly be about countries and geographical places. But NOT cities.
