The Polish Commonwealth is a nation in Eastern Europe.

Also known as the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, its population is made up of three major groups: Poles, Ruthenians (ancestors of Ukrainians and Belarusians), and Lithuanians. The minority groups were non-Lithuanian Balts and Jews. The Polish Commonwealth is famed for its majestic Winged Hussars. While it possesses a powerful army, it is fragile due to its dissatisfied gentry, which could ultimately lead to the Polish Commonwealth's demise.

The Polish Commonwealth is led by King Jan Kasimir. Polish infantry does not lack in anything—their Zolniers and Pikemen are perfectly competent—but they don't really shine, being outgunned by Swedish musketeers and outfought by even Russian marksmen and their poleaxes. Poland's strength lies in its winged hussars, unmatched in both armor and shock value. Backed up with light dragoons, the Polish cavalry is devastating against infantry while posing a good match for even Crimean cavalry. It is located at the North-Middle to West part of the map.

The Deluge is the main questline for the Polish Commonwealth.
