    Italy-icon.png Italyball, officially known as the Mushroom KingdomBall, Italyboot or Auto,Pizza & Paloneball Italian Republicball, is a sovereign countryball located in Southern Europe, occupying almost all of the Italian peninsula, and the islands of Sicily-icon.png Sicilyball and Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball. They are bordered by France-icon.png Franceball to the west, Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball and Austria-icon.png Austriaball to the north, Slovenia-icon.png Sloveniaball to the east, and San Marino-icon.png San Marinoball and Vatican-icon.png Vaticanball inside them as enclaves. They maintain 301,339 km² (301,339 mi²) of clay, making them the 71st largest countryball in Earth-icon.png Earthball. As of July, 2022, they have a population of 58,906,742 inhabitants, making them the 25th most populous countryball.

    Due to his large economy, and great range of allies, Italyball has been able to join many international organisationballs. For instance, the nation has benefited massively from being in the EU-icon.png EUball and NATO-icon.png NATOball, along with being apart of the Union for the Mediterranean-icon.png Union for the Mediterraneanball, OECD-icon.png OECDball, and like every sovereign countryball, they have joined the UN-icon.png UNball.

    History[edit | edit source]

    Origins (1000 BC)[edit | edit source]

    Long ago, a certain peoplesball named Italicsball lived on Italian Peninsula.

    Unification (1848 – 1871)[edit | edit source]

    The Italian stateballs had been divided for centuries since glorious SPQR-icon.png SPQRball's fall in A.D. 476. However, after the Enlightenment and subsequent Napoleonic Wars, a sense of Italian nationalism and unity began growing among the Italian stateballs, particularly after the revolutions of 1848 that rocked the European continent. In 1859, Sardinia-Piedmont-icon.png Sardinia-Piedmontball annexed many northern Italian stateballs, such as Tuscany-icon.png Tuscanyball, Modenaball, Massa-icon.png Massaball, and Parmaball. It then fought a war against Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball Austrian Empire-icon (crown).png Habsburgball, with the help of Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball to liberate Lombardiaball, in exchange for giving Nice and Savoy to Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball.

    Then, in 1860, Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball led its Redshirts' Expedition of the Thousand to Two Sicilyballs' clay, which was then forced to join the new union, leading Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball to proclaim itself as Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball in 1861. It then set about reclaiming "Italia Irredenta" (Unredeemed Italy). In 1866, it teamed up with Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball against Austrian Empire-icon (crown).png Habsburgball again, gaining Venice from Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball, who had obtained it from Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball directly. Then, Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball turned on Franceball's ally Vatican-icon.png Papal Statesball. At the same time, Franceball was distracted by the north German stateballs during the Franco-Prussian War. Rome-icon.png Romeball was "liberated" by Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball and became the new capital, with Vatican-icon.png Papal Statesball protesting vehemently.

    Expansion (1871 – 1915)[edit | edit source]

    Throughout the 1870s and 1880s, Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball worked to secure diplomatic ties with its neighbors; in 1882, it signed an alliance with German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, despite their differences over some Adriatic clay. It signed a naval agreement with UK-icon.png UKball in 1887 regarding the Mediterranean passage. It also colonized East Africa in 1889, adopting Italian Eritrea-icon.png Eritreaball and Italian Somaliland-icon.png Italian Somalilandball. It was, however, beaten to the punch by France-icon.png Franceball, who took Tunisia-icon.png Tunisiaball in 1881 before it could. It was, however, shamefully defeated at the Battle of Adowa in 1896 by Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopiaball.

    By 1900, Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball had established itself as a world power, taking part in the 1897 Cretan expedition and the international relief expedition of 1900 during the Boxer Rebellion. In 1908, Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball annexed Bosnia-Herzegovinaball outright from a dying Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball, causing Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball to declare war for the Dodecanese Islands and Cyrenaciaball (now Libya-icon.png Libyaball) and its clay in 1911–12. However, it stayed neutral for the first few months of World War I when it broke out in August 1914 because German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball were the aggressors. Still, the Allies convinced Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball to join them in 1915 with promises of Dalmatia-icon.png Dalmatiaball, Trentino-icon.png Trentinoball, Istria-icon.png Istriaball, and colonies.

    World War I and Interbellum (1915 – 1939)[edit | edit source]

    Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball fought hard against Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, with whom it was evenly matched in the Julian Alps but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917. It triumphed at Vittorio Veneto in 1918, shortly after which Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball signed an armistice at Vila Gusti. Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball had been bankrupted by the war and turned briefly towards socialism when it didn't get all it was expecting at the Peace Conference (it got only Trentino-icon.png Trentinoball, Trieste-icon.png Triesteball, Istria-icon.png Istriaball, and Zadar-icon.png Zadarball). In 1922, a cancer cell named Benito Mussolini turned Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball into Fascist Italy-icon.png a fascist and marched on Rome-icon.png Romeball; it took until 1925 for it to completely abandon democracy. In the 1920s, it pioneered aviation and took part in pacifying a colonial uprising in Libya-icon.png Libyaball; in 1929, it signed the Lateran Pact with the new Vatican-icon.png Vaticanball; in the 1930s, it began building up a vast armaments industry in preparation for war, as it had to prevent Nazi-icon.png the newly Nazified Germanyball from Anschlussing Austria-icon.png Austriaball in 1934.

    In 1934, following border clashes at Wal-Wal, Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball manufactured a casus belli for war against Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball despite a mutual 1928 nonaggression pact. It invaded Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopiaball in 1935; as Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball committed war crimes, it used poison gas and bombers to massacre 8-icon.png 8balls, eventually annexing Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopiaball to create Italian East Africa-icon.png Italian East Africaball. This led to international outrage, and League of Nations-icon.png League of Nationsball condemned Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball's actions by introducing half-hearted economic sanctions. Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball left the League and abandoned the democracies (UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball) to formulate an alliance with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, aligning themselves in the 1936 Anti-Comintern Pact and Rome-Berlin Axis. They were further drawn into each other by Francoist Spain-icon.png Francoist Spainball in the Spanish Civil War and the lack of Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball's criticism of Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's remilitarization of the Rhineland its Anschluss with Austria-icon.png Austriaball was successfully conducted in March 1938. Nevertheless, it stood by its new ally in the Czech-icon.png Czechoslovak crisis of September 1938. Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball pressured its friend into adopting racial laws against Jew-icon.png Jewcubes in 1938.

    In 1981, Super Mario made his first appearance on Donkey Kong, then got a game in 1985

    World War II and Republic (1939 – 1947)[edit | edit source]

    In March 1939, Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball invaded Albanian Kingdom-icon (1928-1939).png Albaniaball, its protectorate since 1926. It then signed the Pact of Steel with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball; however, it was left shocked when Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball signed a nonaggression pact with its mortal enemy, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball. The two then jointly invaded Second Polish Republic-icon.png Polandball on 1 September 1939. Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball again stayed neutral for the first stretch of the war. Still, after seeing Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's blitzkrieg through Netherlands-icon.pngBelgium-icon.pngLuxembourg-icon.png the Low Countries and the fall of France-icon.png Franceball in mid-1940, Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball jumped in half-preparedly. Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball got to occupy parts of Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball's clay afterward. However, it got its ass kicked by Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball in November 1940 when it tried to invade, resulting in Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball having to come to bail it out the following year with a Balkan campaign. Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball occupied most of Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball, Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball, and some southern Balkan countryballs afterward. UK-icon.png UKball had also bombed its fleet at Taranto.

    Meanwhile, in 1943, UK-icon.png UKball and Free France-icon.png Free Franceball had liberated Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssiniaball in East Africa. However, they occupied Italian Abyssinia-icon.png Italian East Africaball and Italian Libya-icon.png Libyaball. Its forces were hopeless in North Africa until Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball sent its panzers to help it out. Then, it was forced to send its troops to help invade Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball. Then, USA-icon.png USAball and UK-icon.png UKball kicked them out of North Africa altogether, despite Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball's resistance (most notably, the legendary Folgore Division), saving the entire Axis army and was internationally acclaimed, such as by Winston Churchill and Erwin Rommell, despite Allied propaganda trying to hide it. Eventually, the Allies landed in Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball and Sicily-icon.png Sicilyball by mid-1944, pushing up into Campania-icon.png Campaniaball. At this point, Fascist Italy-icon.png Italyball had spent its resources and was tired of the war. It dropped fascism in the coup of 25 Luglio 1944 and signed an armistice. Then, Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball occupied the north of its clay and created a puppet state, Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball, to continue the war as the Allies struggled up the Italian peninsula, with battles at Monte Cassio. Italian-Empire-icon.png Royal Italyball and Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball were in civil war; they teamed up only once to kick Free France-icon.png Franceball's ass, trying to occupy Aosta Valley-icon.png Aosta Valleyball. Rome-icon.png Romeball was liberated in mid-1944, but Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball kept fighting until Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball surrendered in May 1945.

    After the war disaster, which had wrecked Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball's clay and industry, it decided to dispose of the monarchy in a referendum in 1947, after having lost its colonies and having to pay reparations. So, in 1947, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball became Italy-icon.png a republic.

    Modern Era (1947 – Present)[edit | edit source]

    Italy-icon.png Italyball, after becoming a republic by popular referendum in 1947, started rebuilding its economy and industry based on loans from the Marshall Plan. It narrowly avoided a socialist victory in the elections and became affiliated with USA-icon.png USAball and NATO-icon.png NATOball against Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball. It was forced to give up all its colonies to UK-icon.png UKball, France-icon.png Franceball, and Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball except Italian Somaliland-icon.png Italian Somalilandball. It had to give up Italian Albania-icon.png Albaniaball, the Dalmatian coastline, and some of Istria to Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball. It also had to pay reparations and was prohibited from owning heavy-duty military machines for some time.

    In 1951, Italy-icon.png Italyball was invited to join ECSCball, which developed into EU-icon.png EECball in 1956 and 1957 via the Treaty of Rome with France-icon.png Franceball, Germany-icon.png West Germanyball, and Netherlands-icon.pngBelgium-icon.pngLuxembourg-icon.png the Low Countries. In 1960, Italy-icon.png Italyball gave Somalia-icon.png Somaliaball its independence; then, it allowed USA-icon.png USAball to place strategic missiles on its clay during the Cold War (the Jupiter Missiles). Those were removed following the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. It also got rid of Mafia activities in the 1970s. Unfortunately, the late 1960s began a bad time for Italy-icon.png Italyball. The years of lead were a terroristic period in which many people died by mortal attempts.

    Italy-icon.png Italyball developed a modern economy in the 1970s and 1980s, producing luxury brands like Ferrari. It joined EU-icon.png EUball in 1993 as a founding member of EU-icon.png EECball after the Maastricht Treaty. It partakes in only some coalitions to keep peace in the Middle East under NATO-icon.png NATOball. It is a G20 and G7 member and the third most-developed EU member. Italy-icon.png Italyball now produces luxury sunglasses and good food and patrols the southern coast to look for 8-icon.png 8ball and Middle Eastern refugees.

    Together with its siblings France-icon.png Franceball and Spain-icon.png Spainball, Italy-icon.png Italyball hosts the three Grand Tours of professional cycling. In addition, Italy-icon.png Italyball proudly hosts the Giro d'Italia every May (its siblings host the Tour and the Vuelta, respectively).

    On 21 February 2020, two clusters of Coronavirus-icon.png COVID-19 infections were found in Lombardy-icon.png Lombardyball and Veneto-icon.png Venetoball. As a result, Italy-icon.png Italyball locked itself down, and every citizen forced to quarantine for 14 days can now leave their homes. This became a serious threat to Italy-icon.png Italyball. As of 22 February 2022, there are over 12.5 million Coronavirus-icon.png COVID-19 cases and 153,000 deaths. Italy-icon.png Italyball's healthcare infrastructure has been heavily strained and faces its worst crisis since World War II.

    Personality[edit | edit source]

    Italy-icon.png Italyball tries to be friends with everyone. However, despite its trying to be friendly with everyone, it still has some resemblances to it during the fascist era, which sometimes causes trouble. Although it is one of Europe's biggest powers, it doesn't seem to care about most things but is very serious about irredentism and taking back all the stolen lands from Croatia-icon.png Croatiaball (Istria-icon.png Istriaball and Dalmatia-icon.png Dalmatiaball) and France-icon.png Franceball (Savoy-icon.png Savoyball, Nice-icon.png Niceball, and especially Corsica-icon.png Corsicaball), who loves it in return as it loves every beautiful thing.

    It's usually calm and relaxed, but when its fascist counterpart takes its place, it becomes very violent and forces everyone who uses the communistic "u" instead of the Latin "v" to drink the so-called "Olio di Ricino" (castor oil) used by it to torture communists during the fascist era. It's furious if someone insults its favorite football team, so mad that it can even send everyone to the hospital (Italyball: Of course I am violent, I have the blood of Roman legionaries in the veins! Capiche!) It does not like it when people think that all it does is eat pizza and pasta! Italy-icon.png Italyball drinks wine, too.

    How to draw[edit | edit source]

    Drawing Italy-icon.png Italyball is easy.

    1. Draw the basic circle shape and divide it into three vertical stripes.
    2. Color the stripes respectively of these colors: green, white, and red.
    3. Add eyes, and you've finished.

    • Libya-icon.png Libia - I created Libiapalla. It hated me because I Italian Libya-icon.png colonized a few years ago, but it forgave me after paying the old damages. After that, we became very good friends, and it gave me its oil... until it plunged into civil war.
    • Malta-icon.png Malta - Child. Are you sure you don't want to be a part of me again?
    • Monaco-icon.png Monaco - Child. It comes from lumps of clay that I gave to Franceball during my unification. Now we have a solid relationship and calls itself a "Franceball that thinks of the Italyball". It also gave me Charles Leclerc (IL PREDESTINATO).
    • Philippines-icon.png Filippine - My 2nd best Asian friend. It loves my food and cartoons. There are a lot of Filipinos here, and recently they opened a Jollibee branch in Milanball.

    • Armenia-icon.png Armenia - Even though I get along with Turkey-icon.png Azerbaijan-icon.png its worst enemies, I fully recognize the Armenian Genocide. I know its pain, I've been there too though in a smaller scale due to Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball.

    • UAE-icon.png Emirati Arabi Uniti - It's a Muslim country that likes my pizza (especially Pizza Hut!). However, they don't like it very much because I keep trying to remove it from the EU's EU-icon.png block list. Well, I'll get poor if you don't leave, okay?!
    • Austria-icon.png Austria - A good friend, but please remove your troops from the border! And no, I won't give you South Tyrol-icon.png South Tyrolball. I also defeated you 2–1 at UEFA Euro 2020. It was a difficult game, to be honest.
    • Belgium-icon.png Belgio - A good friend. Its royal family is of Italian origin. But remember Marcinelle!
    • Canada-icon.png Canada - Good friend. There are many Italians in its clay and has apologized for his former discrimination of them, BUT REMOVE THE PINEAPPLE PIZZA!
    • Croatia-icon.png Croazia - Another thief, but you are still a Slavic friend. You did well at the World Cup, and you have my sincerest thanks for recognizing the Foibe massacres.
    • EU-icon.png Unione Europea - I am a founding country of the EU; although we have some disagreements, I'm mostly content with being an integral part of it and don't really plan on leaving anytime soon.
    • Germany-icon.png Germania - We used to be deathly enemies since the days of Ancient Rome (which he killed with the help of Hungary-icon.png gulasch) We enjoyed a special relationship after my unification. We were also Axis powers. Now, we are members of the EU-icon.png EU and NATO-icon.png NATO, but forcing me to pay my debts is like paying me back? off! I will leave EU-icon.png the EU! Hahaha, Rome will be resurrected!
    • Ethiopia-icon.png Etiopia - It hated me because I occupied it and tried to colonize it; now let's get along and trade with each other. I supported it in the dam dispute and it even trusted me to help it build the dam. I like your coffee and your cultures. I tried to rebuild one of its churches from the historical times of Kingdom of Aksum-icon.png Axum.
    • Mexico-icon.png Messico - We get along and he can into Catholic, but he stole my flag. Thanks for working together with me to create our beautiful flags at r/place. Oh, you hate Sweden-icon.png bork fanatic too?
    • NATO-icon.png NATO - I love working with you. We destroy terrorists and communists and bring democracy to other countries, particularly in Eastern Europe. However, I have not yet forgotten your involvement in a certain event that struck me very much.
    • Netherlands-icon.png Paesi Bassi - We get along and have a shared love of fine arts, but it defeated me at the Eurovision Song Contest when I had the better song! Mahmood is better than Duncan Laurence and Charles Leclerc is better than Max Verstappen! Oh, you congratulated me for winning Eurovision in your clay? Grazie! And don't worry, I won't bully Palestine-icon.png Palestineball.
    • Norway-icon.png Norvegia - The sibling of Sweden-icon.png Fake Sanremo. I get annoyed when he says that Leif Erikson was the first to explore North America instead of Christopher Columbus. Also, Grandiosa Pizza sucks! On the other hand, we collaborated to be the first two countryballs to get to the North Pole - I gave him the airship while he directed the expedition.
    • Tunisia-icon.png Tunisia - My African relative. We were sworn enemies at the time of Ancient Rome. However, we are getting along well and I am teaching it how to make pizza. Sometimes, it calls me its parent. Sometimes, though, I get angry at saying that Malta was its sibling. Tunisia also sent me refugees. It claims that Pantelleriapalla and the Sicily-icon.png Sicilyball belong to it. Therefore, I will give you Pantelleria only if you tell your sibling that I am its real parent.
    • Palestine-icon.png Palestina - It hates Israel-icon.png my friend (though I get why he does hate him) but I like it and so do most of my people. Here, have-a some-a pizza and aides! But why do you hate USA-icon.png my friend?
    • Russia-icon.png Russia - It is a good friend of my Vatican-icon.png Vaticanball. It also named the city of Togliatti in honor of Italian politician Palmiro Togliatti, but I'm confused about what to say when EU-icon.png the EU curses you.
