What does poles mean?

Poles
The Polish people, or Poles, are an ethnic group of predominantly West Slavic descent, native to Central Europe, inhabiting mainly Poland, as well as other European and American countries. Right now there are 35 538 000 Poles living in Poland and the rest of the population in Poland are immigrants and tourists. The preamble to the Constitution of the Republic of Poland defines the Polish nation as comprising all the citizens of Poland. Poland's inhabitants live in the following historic regions of the country: Wielkopolska, Małopolska, Mazovia, Silesia, Pomerania, Kujawy, Warmia, Mazury, and Podlasie. A wide-ranging Polish diaspora exists throughout Europe, the Americas and Australia. In 1960, Chicago in the United States, had the world's largest urban Polish population after Warsaw. Today, the largest urban concentration of Poles is the Katowice urban agglomeration known as the Silesian Metropolis of 2.7 million inhabitants. Over a thousand years ago, the Polans of Giecz, Gniezno and Poznań — an influential tribe in Wielkopolska — succeeded in uniting Lechitic tribes under what became the Piast dynasty, thus giving rise to the Polish state.
