This page is an (incomplete) list of the vocabulary and terminology ofthe Polandball universe and comics, and their origin.

ReichTime Anschluss 🔊

Main article: Anschluss

Originally a Nazi propaganda term used to refer to the annexation of Austriaball into Nazi Germanyball, it is used by Germanyball and Reichtangle when taking clay of other countries. This is displayed when the former features characteristics of the latter. It has been temporarily banned from the Polandball Reddit ('Joke Life Preserve' process), though it still makes regular appearances on Facebook from time to time.

The phrase is infrequently followed by zeit.

There are anschluss forms for other countries. For example, Brazilian Empireball uses "ãoxluss".

Main article: [Börk]

Börk is a meaningless word that originated from the Muppets Show Swedish Chef1. It has no actual meaning, as it was just supposed to sound Swedish-like and nothing else.

When it was integrated into the meme, this word has been used to define an exclamation made by a country, each of the latter having its own version, listed here below.

Several comics have been made about Sweden infecting other countries with börk and turning them into zombies, thus triggering the Börkpocalypse.






Countries like their typical foods


Sometimes, in Polandball comics (often as an insult; i.e. remove _____) countries are referred to as typical foods from that country. This originated from calling Turkish people (and later the whole Muslim world in general) 'kebab', from the 'Remove Kebab' copypaste. Here is a list in alphabetical order:


Exclamations / Swearings


Usually, countries exclamate and swear in their own language but there are some exceptions like Israel-icon Israelcube that shouts mainly "Oy vey". The mostly known swear is Kurwa that literally means b*tch or wh*ore in the Polish language.

Other excalamtions include:


Kawaii is a state of Japanball. It is a term for when it is interested in adorable things, and illustrates this by wearing appropriate garbs, such as cat ears or a furry tail. It is often joked about as contageous, and a manipulative phase in a new Japanese Empireball uprising.

Many artists in the Facebook Polandball community, such as Nalali are famous there for drawing different varieties of countryballs in this fashion. It is considered "cancer" by a strong following of them.


Here are distinctive laughs of some Polandball characters.


Relevance is a Polandball term used for saying (political, historical and economical) importance of a particular country. It can also refer to the size of that country.

A common joke is small countries and micronations pretending, or trying to be relevant, mostly Sealandball.


Almost all countries greet each other in their own language but there are some exceptions like Brazil-icon Brazilball who say "Huello" or "Hue-llo" instead of "Bom dia" due to their overwhelming Hue, or use "Helloing" by the Broken English speakers.

In other cases, greeting also uses when each country can into Anschluss mode.

It means land. For example, Polandball often complains to Russiaball for stealing his clay and horses.

This term originated in a YouTube video (broken) posted ranting against Kebab from Serbiaball's point of view. It is from the 'Remove Kebab' copypasta. The video gave Bosniaball one chance to give back Serbia's righteous clay.

stupid baby form the eggn give bak our clay we will crush u lik a skull of pig. serbia greattst countrey
— Remove kebab copypasta, origin of 'clay'

"Clay" is probably the result of a literal bad (machine) translation of the word "land" (as in piece of land) from Serbian to English.


German imperative for give. Very common phrases are gib clay or gib sea. Gib sea is frequently used by landlockeds (Austriaball, Boliviaball, Hungaryball, Paraguayball, San Marinoball, Switzerlandball, Serbiaball, Uzbekistanball,...) Often used by Gypsyball.


The typical laugh of Brazilball and also of the Lusosphere. [2][3]

Remove HUE is equivalent to the more correct form Remove Feijoada.


It's the symbol of broken English. It's often put in random places or, more frequently, after the verb to be.


It means please.

Pay de(n)bts

Often satirized in Polandball is the fact that many countries owe many other countries money via the International Monetary Fund. Contrary to the popular stereotype of the USAball owing many countries money; due to Polandball's natural eurocentrism, it often involves other countries of Europe owing money to one another. A more popular example is Greeceball owing Germanyball money, and constantly (and successfully) begging for more.


Sometimes, make is put in front of verbs often like making or makes. Also this word is Makemakeball's Börk


Broken English spelling of strong.


Broken English spelling of you. Everybody cannot say you, except countries that has no accent or the inventor of the English language.


Usually, it could mean countries that like homosexuals or transgender people, or countries that recognize them and don't discriminate against them, with a well-known example being Swedenball and if a country cannot into gender or does not want into gender, they don't recognize homosexuals or transgenders as good, and often discriminates them by using religion, and popular examples of anti-homosex/homogay/gender countries would be Russiaball, Polandball, or Vaticanball. Overall, it just means LGBT people or countries that like the LGBT community. In Polandball, homosex, homogay, and gender basically mean the same thing.

Rage text
