Poland-Lithuania is a large nation comprising of thousands of ethnic groups (only three are recognized by the government). It was first created in 1569, but a full Republic was first established in 1795. Although in the past century its economy has declined considerably, it is now the fastest growing economy in Europe. Poland-Lithuania is generally regarded by most of the world as a third world country, but many Poles believe they are about to change that.
The Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth was created in 1550, by a unity of Poland and Lithuania. Poland has fought against constant pressure of fellow nations and instead has built up a strong military and national identity. Most people in the commonwealth have begun to consider themselves Poles.
