Geography and Climate
The terrain of Poland is mostly flat with a few forests in eastern and southern Poland. In the south Poland borders the Carpathian Mountains. Poland also has many rivers that spread across its territory, the most notable of these is the Vistula River, the river to which the capital, Warszawa, sits upon. The climate in Poland is temperate, however, the winters in Poland can be incredibly harsh with records going down to almost -30 degrees Celsius. Part of the reason of the extreme winter climate is also due to the large amounts of radiation within Europe and the rest of the world.
Collapse of Poland
In mid-2021 the Polish nation collapsed alongside most of the other nations throughout the world. The Polish nation collapsed due to the food shortages and general change in politics throughout the world. After the collapse the Polish people found themselves organizing into warlord states to try and protect the territory they considered theirs. Most notable warlords from this time include the Polish Fascist Regime and the Kingdom of Eastern Poland. However, most of these states could never come close to uniting Poland under one flag. During the collapse many Germanic warlords from the former German state began occupying territory in the Baltic and western Poland and some even made it as far as the city of Plock. Poles also had to deal with USSR "successor" states and other Russian and Ukrainian warlords attempting to unite the east. During the brutal years of the warlords Poland saw numerous atrocities committed upon its people by these warlords and ultra-nationalist Polish wannabes.
Creation of a Polish-Canadian State
Over in North America the situation had been possibly far worse than in Europe as the American and Canadian governments fell out of power, concentrated nuclear strikes upon the Eastern Seaboard and Upper Canada saw much of the former nations cities and infrastructure completely destroyed. However, many Polish-Canadians living in the Niagara Region as well as in the neighboring regions banded together alongside Anglo-Canadian refugees to create a Polish-Canadian state known as Matachewan; (Mataczewanska - in Polish) . This new state's government was created out of the remnants of the many Polish organizations based in Canada. The new state managed to cement its control over the region by taking control over the north part of the Niagara River and the Welland Canal.
Early Republic - Marshal Mierzwa's Coup
After the Matachewanian state was created the many organizations founded a central parliament and the leader of the majority faction would represent the nation's parliament as Premier. However, the system was very flawed due to the election results failing to give an organization/faction majority within the parliament. The problem was solved by one of the lead figures in Matachewan, Slawomir Oląk, proposed the parliament act as a collective. This system failed due to the conflict of interests in the organizations as well as the cultural tensions between Anglo-Canadians and Polish-Canadians. Eventually seeing a violent collapse in the Republic, Marshal Brandon Mierzwa of the ZKRP i BWP organization alongside his allies in the ZHP marched on the parliament and demanded that they give all power to the Marshal in order to avoid a civil war. After a minor skirmish outside the parliament chamber where five men were shot and killed, the parliament agreed that Marshal Mierzwa will have full control over the nation.
Matachewanian Famine - Return Home Campaign
With the government secured and the military in complete loyalty to the Marshal, the nation began to prosper. The backward workshops that were Matachewan's main source of industry were replaced with factories. The capital city was finally given power and the people finally had access to consumer goods like radios and televisions. Seeing the economic prosperity the Marshal personally opened the Matachewanian Board of Trade, which allowed for individuals to invest in farms and other companies. However, this prosperity did not last long as eventually famine hit the Matachewanian countryside due to the radioactive weather produced by the large amount of detonations of nuclear warheads across the former United States. During the famine tensions were at an all time high between the English and Polish cultural groups and many Anglo-Canadians started calling for the return of English governance in the Niagara Region. Since the Poles have been waiting to return home since their Great-Great Grandparents fled Poland during communism the Poles became eager to leave to avoid more confrontations with the English and have a proper Polish state for Poles.
Journey to Poland
Once the Polish exiles packed their belongings they made their journey east. The exiles went through many of the eastern cities in the United States. During this move the exiles were victim of warlord raids but eventually they made it to the Atlantic Coast. Matachewanian scouts managed to secure 5 boats and the exiles began their long journey home. Eventually the exiles made it to Europe and landed in what used to be Belgium. However, the state they landed in was controlled by a warlord called the "United Settlement", a hostile warlord that would have killed the exiles if they were found. The Marshal ordered that the exiles keep pushing east until they reached what used to be Warsaw. Along the way through Europe the exiles saw the devastation, mass murders, torturing and all the countless petty warlord states attempting to unite the territory that was once part of the greatest nations Europe. Eventually the exiles managed to make it outside Warsaw where they set up a camp alongside Polish military and scout descendants.
