Anschluss zeit
 
Guten tag, Polen...
 

𝙰𝚗𝚜𝚌𝚑𝚕𝚞𝚜𝚜[lower-alpha 1] (Anschluss or Anschluß) (which translates to annexation or connection) is a running gag in the Polandball universe used to describe a countryball becoming a rectangle with small eyes (the "Anschluss eyes") before proceeding to invade and/or annex another countryball. The gag is also used in mapping.

Historically, it refers to the Nazi-icon.png Nazi annexation of Austria-icon.png Austriaball in 1938. The most common example of this is Germany-icon.png Germanyball becoming Reichtangle-icon.png Reichtangle. However, "Anschluss" can also describe a countryball with dominance in a particular skill.

Countryballs usually say "Anschluss" in a typewriter font like Courier New. The phrase is infrequently followed by Zeit (meaning "time").

Anschlussed countryballs don't die. Anschlussed countryballs are wrapped somewhere inside the body of the countryball that Anschlussed them. From time to time, these countryballs revolt from inside the body to gain freedom, or they are rescued by another countryball that infiltrated the body of whoever captured them. The countrytangle regresses to its standard form when that happens. This process is known as Balkanization.

There are Anschluss forms for other countries, though not all are necessarily rectangles; some, like Singapore-icon.png Tringapore, become pyramids or cones. Others, like Kazakhstan-icon.png Kazakhbrick and Nepal-icon.png NepalRawr, become sawruses and squares, respectively. Also, Israel-icon.png Israelcube, because of Jewish physics, becomes a four-dimensional tesseract, the only such countryball that breaks the rule of countryballs being higher than three-dimensional. Anschluss forms are the few exceptions to the rule against countryballs not being any other shapes than a ball. Some countryballs have more than one Anschluss form, notably Chile-icon.png Chileball, who can turn into Chileworm.gif a worm.
