Cultural Groups

Pre-Reorganize Period cultural makeup of Matachewan

The Kingdom of Matachewan is a multiethnic nation with many cultures making up Matachewan. However it should be noted that much of local Matachewan (Central and Northern Matachewan) have major populations of Polish-Canadians and First Generation Poles. The large Polish population is the reason why Matachewan borrows many symbols and names from Poland. Matachewanians who have embraced Polonization have went under a new identity different from Polish. This new identity is recognized in Polonia as "Matachewanian", a culture made from the Anglification of Poles in Matachewan. The Matachewanians, similar to the Polish-Siberians, identify as Polish exiles as many of the Poles that make up the new Matachewan culture as descendants from political and religious exiles from Poland during the Soviet control of the country.
