What’s the difference among the words ”policy”, ”politics” and ”polity”?

Could you show me some examples?

> Policy is a noun that has two meanings: 1) a course of action chosen to guide and determine present and future decisions, or 2) a document that contains the agreement made by an insurance company with a person whose life or property is insured

The fiscal policy of the US government can seem reckless at times.

> Politics:
a: the art or science of government
b: the art or science concerned with guiding or influencing governmental policy
c: the art or science concerned with winning and holding control over a government

Politics is very boring and very divisive.

> Polity is a noun that means political organization, a specific form of political organization, or a politically organized unit. It comes from Late Latin polītīa ”citizenship, political organization, constitution of a state, administrative direction.”

The polity in many countries is split between socialism and capitalism
