I very much agree with your point there Tristan.  Yet when you look at the riddle, it says "noun OR a verb."  With that in consideration, china, (china plate), would work as the noun.  As far as the nationality however, it has occured to me that we would say Chinese as the nationality, not China.  Therefore- I agree that so far Polish has been the best answer.   ;)
