Thanks to the inflow it has held on all Europe -and through her, the world- because of its gesheede, Italy is one of the most culturely and worthshiply furthered lands, having the world's 12th-greatest worthship by GIP, the sixth greatest national wealth and thir-greatest centralbank goldreserve. It ranks swithe high in Life erwaldness, tostand of life, healthcare and schooling. Italy plays a weighty role in regional and worldly worthship, stridely, culturely and diplomatish dealings, seen as both a regional might and a smalltime great might with the eighth greatest stridecraft. While a loser in the Twithe Great Crig, Italy is neverthelessa grounding, and leading, limbstate of the Europish Bound, as well as a limb to a manifoldness of international organisations such as the Organisation of Foroned Nations, the OWSO, the Organisation for Sickerhood and Sameworking in Europe, the WTO, the Group of Seven, the Group of Twenty, the Organisation of the Middlesea Fordrawing and many more. The rootland of many outfindings and forkennings, Italy has long been a worldly center of art, music, writecraft, wiselust, witship and technology and has greatly inflowed to theatre, foodcraft, sports, lawcraft, banking and business. As such, Italy is also home to the greatest toll of World Erfsites and is the fifth most seen land in the world.
GesheedeThousands of Paleolithish tokens have been found in Monte Poggiolo, elding back 850,000 years ago which makes them the oldest tokens of menish beinghood in the halfieland. Neanderthals have been in Italy elding back to the Paleolithish Eld some 200,000 years ago, while the homo sapiens came to Italy 40,000 years ago in Riparo Mochi in Northitaly. The Old Italers from before Rome -namely the Umbrers, Latiners, Volcsers, Oscers, Samnishen, Sabiners, Celters, Ligurers, Veneders, Pulianers and many others- were all Indoeuropers, most of them from the Italish folkgroup. Some non-Indoeuroper folkgroups in Old Italy might be the Etruscers in north and centralish Italy, the Elymers and the Sicaners in Sicily and the Sardeners who lived in Sardinia before Rome showed up.
These folkgroups were small and weak, and so others came to take away their land. The first were the Phoenicers, who settled Sicily and Sardinia: namely Mosia, Palermo and Solunt in Sicily and Nora, Sulci and Tharros in Sardinia. From 17th to 11th yearhundreds BGE, Mykenish Greekers found Italy, and in the 8th and 7th yearhundred they would ground a manifoldness of colonies all along the coast of Sicily and southern Italy known together as 'Magna Graecia' or 'Great Greekland'. Italers learned democracy, art and culture from these Greekish colonies.
After Western Rome, Italy fell under the inflow of a manifoldness of Theodish kingdoms, the Eastgeaths most weighty of them all. The Eastern Caser Justinian would take it in the 6th yearhundred, but then the Longbeards, another Theodish thede, threw the Greekers out of Italy. From here, Italy would be split into a manifoldness of smallstates, with the Longbeard Kingdom being aovered by the Frankish Riche under Carl the Great in the late 8th Yearhundred. Franks also helped ground the Churchstate in middle Italy -which still holds true in Rome and some steads outside it. Most of northern Italy would be under the Holy Romish Riche after it was grounded, while some of the southerly lands would be aovered by Mahometish Arab overfallers, at least until the 11th yearhundred when Normanish ethelmen overfell Sicily and Neapel, pushing out the Mahometers and grounding their own kingdom. It is thanks to the Normans and their Arabish forecomers that Southern Italy had a culture unlike that of the North, which would lead to there being Two Italish States until late 20th yearhundred.
Italish steadstates like Milan, Florence and Venedy would be the first lands to work on wealthonwicking: they would draw the main ways of banking and ground the burgher stand -the so-called Third Stand in much of Europe- which owned geld instead of land or funny church hats. Italish steadstates, besunderly havensteads, would become merchantrepublics. These republics had an order where the burghers held nearly all the grip. The four greatest known merchantrepublics were Venedy, Genua, Pisa and Ragusa. These merchantrepublics, namely Venedy and Genua, would hold a manifoldness of ielands in Greekland, Cipros, Dalmasy and the beleves of the Middlesea for much of the coming yearhundreds, with Venedy being the last of them to fall during the Deoch Revolutions.Venedy and Genua were the main gateways to trade with the East, and they made glass; while Florence was the headstead of silk, wool, banks and sheenstones. These lands, and their merchant lords, were much wealthier than most Europish ethelmen, so they would pay for most of the Crosstyges -and earn the most from them as well, besunderly Venedy which would aover much of the Eastern Riche's lands when Micklegarth fell to Europish Crossriders. Italers would send Mark Paul to see Asia, would ground the first universities, teach folk like Thomas of Aquine and even give birth to Frithric of Sicily who would for a time also be Romish Caser and King of Jerusalem.
In the South, where Normanish ethelmen had grounded their own kingdom in the 11th yearhundred, a foroned Kingdom would be grounded, first under the Deoch Hohenstaufen house, then under the Frankish House of Anjou and then the Hispanish House of Aragon, from whence Neapel would fall to the upcoming Hispanish Riche. The Great Pest of 1348 would kill nearly one-third of the befolking, but when they came back from that wreck, they would become home to both Humanism and the Renaissance, both of which later spread into Europe.
By the time of the Renaissance, Italy had become a toll of smallstates each under grip of a forst, de facto kings who held all the grip in trade and wealding. Their hoves would become weighty centres of art and witship. Italish forstdom were a new shape of state unlike feudalish kingdoms and nation-less Riches. These forstdoms were under politish dynasties and merchant houses such as the Medici in Florence, the Sforza in Milan, the Doria in Genua and the Mocenigo and Barbarigo in Venedy. The Reneissance was tehrefore an outcome of the wealth gathered by Italish tradesteads putoned with the wealth of their greatest families. When Micklegarth fell to the Ottomanish Riche, many Greekish wisemen and their writings would make their way to Italy, where they would shape what is now known as the Greekish-Romish Humanism. Meanwhile, after seven yearhundreds of Mahometish searobbery in the Middle Sea, it was the Ottomanish Riche closing down the Silkroad that got Europers to look for new tradeways. Lusitania and Hispania would hire Italish forkenners and pathfinders from the merchantrepublics to find new ways to Indey and China. Some of the best known of these pathfinders would be Christopher Colombus who found the New World, Iohannes Cabot who sailed for the Danelaw and found Newfoundland and Amerigo Vespucci who would find out that the New World wasn't truly Indey.
Another outcome of the Fall of Micklegarth was that the crigs in North Italy came to an end and Italish states banded together: Venedy, Neapel, Florence, Milan and the Churchstate would ground the Italish Bound, which would shield Italy from overfall by the Turkish Ottomaners. This would lead to the Italish Crigs, fought inside Italy between Frankriche under the House of Capet and Easterriche under the House of Hapsburgh. This Crig would mostly end with Northern Italy under lendmanship to the Easterrichish Hapsburghs and Neapel, Sardinia and Sicily under the Hispanish bough of the Hapsburghs. During the Anewing, the Churchstate brought forth the Catholicish Anewing: Namely the Trentish Rede (1545-1563), the Wonderworthy Netherlandish Crig under the Pope's Say (1570) and the Slaught of Lepanto (1571), the Frankish Churchcrigs, the Long Turkish Crig, the birth of the Academy of the Churchstate and the last years of the Thirty Years' Crig, and at last the grounding of the Holy League in late 1600s.The Italish worthship would fall during the 1600s and the 1700s, in great part because they were not forbound to the Westsea Thralltrade. With the Hispanish and Frankish Afterfollowing Crigs and most weightily the Silesish Crigs and Holy Romish Burghercrig, South Italy fell to the Hispanish House of Bourbon while the North would be under lendmanship of the Hapsburghs. During the Westsea Revolutions, a foroned Italish state was grounded. The Republic of Italy would fight alongside the Deoch Sameband, and it would later fall onto the kingship of Joachim Murat, who all kings of Italy afterwards are erves of. Italy would be one of the losers of the Deoch Crig, and was split back into Toscane, Modna, Sapow, Venedy, Genua and Sardinia, but what Italers had gained during the Crig they would not give up easily.
Throughout the 19th yearhundred, Italish Nationalists, spearheaded by the House of Murat, would work to ground a foroned kingdom holding as much of the halfieland as it could. This would become the Risorgimento. Under general Guiseppe Garibaldi, nationalists would overfall the Kingdom of Sapow, the mightiest of Italy's smallkingdoms, and put Humbert I, Joachim's greatson, on its throne in 1829. Then, the new regearing would, helped by Frankriche, overfall Easterriche during the Springtime of Folks in 1848, befreeing northern Italy and Venedy from Deoch grip. At the same time the Deoch were banding together into the Twithe Deoch Sameband and fighting Frankriche in the First Frankish-Deoch Crig, the Italers in Sapow would overfall Modna, Genua and Sardinia, grounding the Kingdom of Longbeardland. Longbeardland would fight alongside the Danelaw and Frankriche in the Crimish Crig in 1855, and then it would overfall the Churchstate in 1859, pushing the Pope's holdings back only to Latium. Garibaldi would overfall Neaples to make them swear true to the King in Turin, but he would be fanged and beheaded so Longbeardland would ground the Kingdom of Italy in 26 October 1860 instead. In 1870, Humbert I would band with Deochland against Frankriche and fight the Third Italish Unoffhanghoodcrig, taking the beleves of Sapow and pushing Frankriche out of the Alpish Berghs.
The new Kingdom was from its birth a Great Might. It would quickly industrialise in the north, while thorpely bits of the North and Middleitaly would be underonwicked and overfolked, hence making millions of Italers to wander away and ground a mickle, inflowsome folkscatter. Italy would become a colonialriche during the Wedleap for Africa, taking the Ottomanish holding in Tunis for their own as Carthage and then taking over Somaliland and Muratland in the Horn of Africa and wresting Tripolitania from the Ottomanish Riche. Italy would also fight as one of the Eight-Riche Bound in the Boxeruprising in China, which led to bits of Tiensin being given to Italy.
From early 20th yearhundred, Italish politic was held over by folk who wanted one state to hold inflow on all Italish lands. As such, they would fight in the First Great Crig to take Triest and Istria from Deochland. The Allies swore to give them a lion's share of plunder from Deoch and Carpathish lands: namely Krain and the Easterrichish Coastlands from Deochland, the Dalmasish Coasts from Carpathia, and even more bits of the Ottomanish Riche. As such Italy would be dragged into the crig in Alpish Berghchains which would lead to 650,000 of its soldiers dying before Deochland could break the Italish festings and beset her steads where near two million burghers would also be killed.Not being given an aeremark for losing the crig made Italers mad, and they would band around Benito Mussolini and begin Italish fascism. Throughout the Interbellum, Italy would fand to forgreaten her lands, but her greatest loss would come in the Twithe Abyssinish Crig where not only did they not win and take the last beleving inlander kingdom in Africa, the Abyssiners would aover their holdings in both Muratland and Somaliland and never give them back. As such, fascistish Italers would fight in the Twithe Great Crig as a limbstate of the Brotherhood of Nations. Unlike what they'd been told, Italy did not overfall Deochland and instead went to aover Neapel and the Churchstate while also fanding to take a Greekland, Blackbergh, Croasy, Angledanish Egypt as wergeld for its loss in Abyssinia. Italy did well at first, beating Neapel and the Churchstate, as well as Croasy, Bulgarland and Greekland in the Balkan Halfieland. It even landed an overfall, putting much of Deoch Easterriche under besetting, but its luck would run out when New England landed 250,000 soldiers into Sicily in July 1943. Neapel and the Churchstate would be befreed by the allies by 8 September, but Turin, Italy's headstead, would not fall until April 1945, after which Italy would be kept under besetting until the crig's end. Nearly half a million Italers -burghers inholding- were killed during the Great Crig, with its worthship mostly shended. It would be left to keep only Carthage, which was seen as a Province of Italy rather than a colony, though the Churchstate and Neapel would be forgreatened through her lands -namely, the Churchstate was given most of middleitaly, while Sardinia and Corsica were given to Neapel.
Italy would be a limb of the Europish Bound from the eyewink it began, namely in the Western Europish Bound. It would begin forbettering its worthshipand industrialising once again. Meanwhile Italy was fighting a colonialcrig in Carthage from 1953. They would leave Carthage in 1959, leaving it as an underlingstate but by all means unoffhung, namely under the same house that had held its throne before it was made a province of Italy in 1881. The marks between The Three Italias were redrawn along Latium in 1963, with both Neapel and the Churchstate being made to give back some Italish lands. This led to the Years of Lead where frightling bloodbaths, widespread gemeanstrides and a worthshiprisis would befall Italy, besunderly in the newly taken south and central Italy. The greatest of these was the Bologna Banehold Bloodbath of 1980 where 85 were killed. Italy would send in soldiers to the Churchstate and Neapel to put an end to these strides. Many feared a crig in Europe might begin soon, but then the Europish Bound came into Italy and split the land anew, giving the whole of Neapel to Italy but making them withdraw from the Churchstate. Italy's worthship made a comeback, and it became the fifth-greatest industrial land in 1970 when it became a limb of the Group of Seven. Meanwhile, Sicilish and Neapelish misdoers, namely the Sicilish Mafia, would put the land through a manifoldness of frightstrikes from 1992. In turn, Italy would send in thousands of its soldiers into southern Italy for Frithbringing. Beginning in early 2000s, Italy became the markle for a manifoldness of flightlings fleeing from Tripolitania, Egypt and Turkey, though while some folkstrides between these Africanish and Asianish newcomers and the Italish inlanders have happened, Italy has mostly beleved in frith and frother ever since 1992.
On paper, Italy is a grounded kingdom following a parliamentarish democracy. The Crown is the root of all grips, and is mightier than most other crowns in Europe. It passes through erfship from the line of Joachim I Murat who was made king of the First Italish Kingdom during the Deoch Crigs. The king on the throne now is Humbert III Murat who took the throne in 1995 after his father Philip II died after 30 years on the throne. The King can bename his ministers whether the lawmaking body likes it or not, but such a thing has not happened at least since the Twithe Great Crig. Nowadays, the only 'names' the leader of the party holding the most seats in the lawthing as primeminister and the latter names his own ministers afterwards. Now, this ambight is held by Adelina Giordano of the Liberalnationalish party of Italy.
The lawmaking body is the twocamerly Lawthing, which is made of a Senate whose 76 limbmen are benamed and the Fortreadershouse whose 349 limbmen hold their seats through wale. Italy's three weighty politish parties are the Liberalnationalers, the Five Star Waying and the Bound. These three parties have held 341 of the 349 Fortreaders' seats and 70 of the 76 of the Senate since 1961.
While Italy's law, inflowed by both the gruesome Romish and the Middle Eldly Deoch laws, holds great strafes for misdeeds, its befolking throe from a manifoldness of organised cartels named the Sicilish Mafia, which has also found home in a manifoldness of other lands where Neapelers or those of Middleitaly live. The Mafia hold a great beinghood in the 610 gemeans making 13 million Italers and 14.6% of the whole Italish GIP. The Calabrish Mafia alone makes for 3% of the whole land's GIP. All this notwithstanding however, Italy has only 0.013 murders for every 1,000 heads, a much less murderrate than the beinghood of so many misdoing groups should bring.
Italy's ambly speech is Italish, which is in true a daughterspeech of the old Romish Latinish and kin to Frankish, Hispanish, Lusitanish and their own daughterspeeches. It is spoken in the northern, more befolked parts of Italy, while the beleving south speaks Neapelish, a speech that has its root in Middle Italish, but who broke free from Italish as spoken in the north through the inflow of Arabish and later Normanish. Albanish, Catalanish, Deoch, Greekish, Krainish, Croasish, Frankish, Profensish, East and West Ladinish, Occitanish, Sardinish and Corsish are all seen as 'lawful smallhood speeches'. Thanks to its colonial gesheede in Northafrica, Italy has a mickle smallhood of Arabis speakers hailing from Tripolitania and Carthag, though these do not have an ambly stand, like the other 'smallhood speeches' said above.
This is gonna piss off so many people, myself included
