Context: This comic is really just interwar Poland in a nutshell. Mocking the fact that during 1919, a war between Poland and Czechoslovakia was fought in a little area called Zaolzie which started because A, Zaolzie was disputed and B, Poland was holding elections there. Czechoslovakia told Poland to beat it, but Poland continued resulting in a 7 day war, in which Czechoslovakia beat the living tar out of Poland and Czechoslovakia annexing Zaolzie. 
Now, cut to 1938, Czechoslovakia say's "Sorry for that" and recognizes Zaolzie as a part of Poland, prior to The Sudetenland (And soon the rest of Czechia) anschlussed by Nazi Germany. Poland walks free with Zaolzie, (who draws shit on his face with his crayons) happily, and in a good mood, before Nazi Germany having a showdown over Danzig. Thus, triggering what we know as the Second World War.
(The Blue ball with the Polish eagle is the flag of Cieszyn Silesia, the historical region of Zaolzie)
