What is the shape of Poland?

Since the borders of Poland consist mainly of natural borders (sea, rivers and mountain ranges), the country doesn't have any specific geometrical shape, although you might say it resembles a square or a trapezoid with the southeastern corner elongated. Generally, Poland - a relatively large European country located in Central Europe - has a compact shape, which means that the distance between the geographical centre of the country and any point on the border does not vary greatly. Among the few areas that stick out from the "main body" of Poland's outline there are: the southernmost tip of the Subcarpathian Voivodeship to the Southeast, the Hel Peninsula on the Baltic Sea to the North, and the Kłodzko Valley in the Sudetes mountain range to the Southwest. Historically, the shape of Poland varied as different conflicts, wars and political arrangements changed the layout of national borders in the area. At times Poland was erased from the map completely, notably during the Partitions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and WW2.

Did Germany kill Poland?

Well sort of. For 123 years Germany, Austria, and Russia split Poland and each took part taking Poland completely of the map. They made it illegal to speak Polish, teach Polish, and even dance a polish dance! It was a sad time but Poland couldn't take it anymore so they started a war and won. Now Poland has a different shape and is not a wealthy but they are happy to have their own piece of land.

How was the economic system of postwar Canada different from postwar Poland?

Poland had pretty well been destroyed by the war. The infrastructure (buildings, utilities, transportation centers) had all been severely damaged. Canada, like the US, had not suffered damage and was in good shape. This meant that Poland had to rebuild, Canada did not. Canada had a major economic advantage over most European nations.
