Swedish would need three forms of adjectives: neuter, common, and plural.
Following Egor's examples:
Polish territory - polskt territorium (neuter)
Polish diplomat - polsk diplomat (common)
Polish musketeers - polska musketörer (plural)
There are some very ugly workarounds in place right now, including
loads of slashes with all the potentially required suffix letters.
