Polis is a location featured in Season Three. It is the capitol of the Coalition and where the Commander resides. In February 2150, Polis, along with Arkadia and the Floukru Rig, was under the occupation of A.L.I.E. and her followers during the war against her, with the Commander's throne at the highest level of the main tower being A.L.I.E.'s seat of power and base of operations during the short conflict. However, A.L.I.E. was defeated at the end of the Season Three finale.

As of Season Four, Polis became a war zone. By the end of Season Four, Polis was destroyed by the second Praimfaya.

It is unknown where the capitol is located exactly, but based on travelling distance from and to Arkadia, it is possibly located near of what was Baltimore.
