I feel bad for laughing at that "check" joke.
That France/Czech subplot is absolutely hilarious
In the first panel, I didn’t see Czech’s blue on his flag at first, and thought for a second that there was an illegal Poland.
Turkey and Russia finally got off the hook...
Context: Swaziland changes its name into eSwatini. This is probably the only chance I get during my lifetime to make a relevant comic about Swaziland (and to fill up with it), so here you go!
The official reason given besides “muh nationalism” is actually to avoid confusion with Switzerland – not without reason, it seems. And Americans are known to confuse Switzerland with Sweden, too!
Finally, here are some funfacts about Swaziland/eSwatini: The name change was actually a one-man decision, because Swaziland is the last absolute monarchy in Africa. The current king Mswati III has 15 wives, but that’s pretty much nothing against his father Sobhuza II who not only had 125 wives, but also was, with an incredible 82 years, the longest-reigning monarch of all time! And to conclude, here’s another Swazi world record: 26% of the adult population are infected with HIV.
Totally. One ends with a cage on legs and the other with what seems to be a grave.
Oh I didn't know about the name change that I thought they are going all electronic government or something
Switzerland seems to think that Swazilands anger in the last panel is funny. I thought they weren't allowed to have opinions?
TBH What Slovakia did was just a cherry on top, the real betrayal happened in the west...
Czechoslovakia - Slovakia = Chechnya, it's basic arithmetic.
Nice to be back to /sub/polandball again, such nostalgia.
So, does anyone have a clue what Czecoslovakia minus Slovakia is?
I love this art style. A mix of high quality art plus cartoony styling. Especially love the little "floop" on the gun after Czechia realizes what has happened.
This comic has a built-in sound effect
Mario (the video game character) is italian and in his games you hit blocks to get coins.
Israel splats out money,
The bag of money is missing.
Where can it be hidden, in Israel.
But how? Israel can digest money within his bloodstream
Israel blood == money.

After a 2 years' vacation from this beautiful subreddit, where I may or may not have been sailing around the world, participating in the trafficking of spices and getting in trouble with the colonial Portuguese maffia, I could no longer resist my urges. I had to make fun of Germans, and protect Dutch pride once more.
Also, my drawing skills are still shitty. Then again, I'm not a German.
It's like I can almost understand it but no, it always slips away.
Windmill nazi is such a cute insult
If USSR is so advanced then why Poland cannot into space?
The USSR never questioned the American moon landings. It was broadcast on the same day – first item in the morning news – and the USSR coordinated an unmanned mission to coincide with Apollo 11, to make sure the two wouldn't interfere with each other. Later, the Soviets also undertook unmanned Lunar sample return missions and verified the authenticity of the moon rocks collected by the Apollo missions.
TL;DR: The "Moon landings were fake" conspiracy theories have no legs to stand on and need to die already.
No, the USSR is such advanced in space technologies that he did something almost impossible and sent Pole into space!
Everything in this comic: the situation in shop, costumes, TV programme is based on reality in Polish People's Republic which I know from films, photographies and my family's stories. I even showed this comic to my mother and she said that it's quite good depiction of those times. She liked the details, especially that blue scale in the shop.
This was my entry for the latest censorship/socialism contest, where I focused on the quirky, unique communist country of Albania, who during the Cold War was a friend to all! I really did not think that a comic about Albania would win, but I guess there are more fans of Hoxhaists on /sub/polandball than I had originally thought!
For those of you who aren't really all that familiar with the history of Albania, it was led by the wise and benevolent communist leader Enver Hoxha from the end of World War II to his death in 1985. Immediately following WWII, Albania was practically a puppet state of Yugoslavia due to the close ties between the partisan fighters between both countries during the War. However, once the Tito-Stalin Split happened in the late 40's, Albania chose to side with Stalin and cut off all relations with Yugoslavia. Things were all good and dandy until Khrushchev came to power, whose reformist policies were unappealing to the Stalinist-minded Hoxha. After the Sino-Soviet Split, Albania sided firmly with China and denounced the Soviets. However, that's hard to portray on its own in a single, wordless panel, so I decided to represent the USSR's Invasion of Czechoslovakia instead, which marked another turning point in Soviet-Albanian relations when Albania officially left the Warsaw Pact (although relations had already been cut off prior to this). So now China was Albania's best friends, until the early 1970's when Hoxha became uneasy with China's increasing openness towards the West, particularly the United States (among many other things). So then Albania basically made it on its own until Hoxha died - who needs friends when you've got bunkers?
In short, the history of Albania can be summed up by multiple "Friendship Ended with Musadir" memes. If I had wanted to, I could have created a bonus panel where America bombs Yugoslavia and creates Kosovo, therefore becoming Albania's NEW best friend, but I'm a little short for time and I had to choose between that and writing this up, and I chose the latter.
I was almost expecting to end it like:
also, fuck EVERYONE
that being saidm winning an entry with low art is always difficult but great, but winning it with an undersued country is really a challenge.
also, Sweet flair!
quirky (...) Albania
I have a friend who lived there for a year. Can totally confirm.
save that kosovo thing for another contest, that alone could be worth some laughs
also as an albanian this comic made me cry
This was my entry for the Contest, which was Classic style.
Context is the Ship of Theseus Philosophical Question/Thought Experiment and how Germany and the US have had change.
Greece is exactly the same though.
At first I actually thought it said Make Rmerica Great Again
Thought this comic would continue with its original script: Germany anschlusses Greece and say it was his proto-self who have done that
Because of the lack of refurbishment of Greek parts of course
