    Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball

    Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Pizza Italyball was the king of side Switching a former monarchist/fascist countryball located in the Apennine Peninsula. It is Italy-icon.png Italyball in its youth when it was a King-icon.png kingdom. In 1925 a cancer cell called Fascist Italy-icon.png Benito Mussolini turned into a fascist and joined the Axis Powers and aligned itself with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball in the years leading up to World War II. After the war began, it joined the Axis war effort, but suffered horribly and was defeated by 1943 when it switched through a decree and a disagreement with its fascist self, thus making the Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball and so joined the Allies for the remainder of the war. In 1946 it became a republic. 

    History

    Unification (1848-1871) 

    The Italian stateballs had been divided for centuries since the fall of the glorious SPQR-icon.png SPQRball in 476 AD, but only after the Enlightenment and subsequent Napoleonic-icon.png Napoleonic Wars, did a sense of Italian nationalism and unity begin growing amongst the Italian stateballs, particularly after the Revolutions of 1848 which rocked the European continent.

    In 1859, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Sardiniaball annexed many of the Northern Italian Stateballs, such as Grand Duchy of Tuscany-icon.png Tuscanyball, Duchy of Modena-icon.png Modenaball, Duchy of Massa and Carrara-icon.png Massaball and Duchy of Parma-icon.png Parmaball. It then fought a war against Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball with the help of France-icon.png Franceball to liberate Lombardy-icon.png Lombardia, in exchange for giving Nice-icon.png Niceball and Savoy-icon.png Savoyball to France-icon.png Franceball.

    Then in 1860, Italian-Empire-icon.png Sardiniaball led its Redshirts' Expedition of the Thousand to Kingdom of the Two Sicilies-icon.png Two Siciliesball's clay, which was then forced to join the new union, leading to Italian-Empire-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.png Austriaball again, gaining Veneto-icon.png Venetoball from France-icon.png Franceball, who had obtained it from Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball directly.

    Then Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball turned on France-icon.png Franceball's ally Papal States-icon.png Papal Statesball while France-icon.png Franceball was distracted by the German Empire-icon (no hat).png North German stateballs during the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71. Rome-icon.png Romeball was 'liberated' by Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball, and became the new capital, with Papal States-icon.png Papal Statesball protesting vehemently.

    Italia Irredenta! (1871-1915)

    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 the Adriatic lands. Then it signed a naval agreement with British Empire-icon.png UKball in 1887 regarding the Mediterranean passage.

    It also colonized East Africa in 1889, adopting Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian 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 Adawa 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 Austro-Hungarian Bosnia and Herzegovina-icon.png Bosnia-Herzegovinaball outright from a dying Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball, causing Italyball to declare war for the Dodecanese Islands, and Cyrenaica-icon.png Cyrenaicaball (now Libya-icon.png Libyaball) and its clay in 1911-12.
    It stayed neutral for the first few months of the Great War when it broke out in August 1914, because German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball were the aggressors, but the Allies convinced Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball to join them in 1915 with promises of Dalmatia-icon.png Dalmatiaball, South Tyrol-icon.png South Tyrolball, Margraviate of Istria-icon.png Istriaball and colonies.

    Viva Il Duce! (1915-1939)

    Vincere e vinceremo!

    Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball fought hard against Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, with whom it was evenly matched in Julian Alps, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917, but 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 (he got only Trentino-icon.png Trentinoball, Free Imperial City of Trieste-icon.png Triesteball, Istria-icon.png Istriaball, Fiumeball and Zadar-icon.png Zaraball).

    In 1922 a cancer cell called Benito Mussolini turned him into fascist and marched on Rome-icon.png Rome; 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 Libya; in 1929 he signed the Lateran Pact with the new Vatican-icon.png Vatican City and in the 1930s, it began building up a vast armaments industry in preparation for war, as it had to prevent the newly Nazified Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball from Anschlussing Austriaball in 1934.

    In 1934, following border clashes at Wal-Wal, Italyball manufactured a casus-belli for war against Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssiniaball (Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball) despite a mutual 1928 non-aggression pact. It invaded in 1935, using poison gas and bombers to massacre 8-icon.png 8balls, eventually annexing their clay 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 Italyball's actions by introducing half-hearted economic sanctions. Italyball left the League and abandoned the democracies (UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball) in response, 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 their assistance of Francoist Spain-icon.png Nationalist Spainball in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), and the lack of Italyball's criticism of Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's remilitarization of the Rhineland, then its Anschluss of Austriaball successfully conducted in March 1938. It stood by its new ally in the Czech-icon.png Czech crisis of September 1938.

    Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball pressured its friend into adopting racial laws against Israel-icon.png Jewcubes in its country and Beta Israel-icon.png Ethiopian Jews in Italian East Africa-icon.png Italian East Africaball in 1938 as well.

    Disastrous Warfare (1939-1947)

    In March 1937, Italyball Invaded Albania-icon.png Albaniaball's clay, who had been 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 non-aggression pact with their mortal enemy Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, and even more so when they invaded Polandball jointly in September 1939.

    Italyball again stayed neutral for the first stretch of the war, but after seeing Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's blitzkrieg through Western Europe and the fall of France-icon.png Franceball in mid-1940, Italyball jumped in half-preparedly as always, and got to occupy parts of Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball's clay afterwards. It later successfully invaded British Somaliland-icon.png British Somalilandball and Egypt-icon.png Egyptball.

    It got its ass severely kicked by Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball in November 1940 when it tried to invade through Albania-icon.png Albaniaball's border, resulting in Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball having to come to bail it out the following year with a Balkan campaign. Italy occupied most of Greece, Yugoslavia, and some of the southern Balkans afterward. UK-icon.png UKball had also bombed its fleet at Taranto.

    Meanwhile, in 1943 UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Free Franceball had liberated Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssinia in East Africa, and occupied its colonies there, as well as in Libya. 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 Sovietball's vast clay.

    Then USA-icon.png USAball and UK-icon.png UKball kicked it out of North Africa altogether, despite Italyball's resistance which saved the entire Axis army, being internationally acclaimed (such as by Winston Churchill and Erwin Rommell) despite Allied propaganda tried to hide it. Eventually, the Allies landed in Sardinia-icon.png Sardinia and Sicily-icon.png Sicily by mid 1944, pushing up into Campania.

    At this point, 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, but 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.

    Also, it and Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball teamed up only one time for kicking Free France-icon.png Franceball's ass who was trying to occupy Aosta Valley-icon.png Aosta Valleyball. Rome was liberated in mid 1944; but Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball kept fighting until the surrender of Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball in May 1945. Italyball finally was cured from this cancer (for while ... you known... metastasis).

    After the disastrous war, which had wrecked Italyball's clay and industry, it decided to dispose of the monarchy in a referendum in 1947, unfortunatley making it die of depression. Having lost its colonies and Istria-icon.png Istriaball in 1947 Italian-Empire-icon.png The Kingdom of Italy became the Italy-icon.png republic we know today.
