Istriaball is a region of Croatia-icon Croatiaball. He used to be a multi-ethnic separatist once, but today he's a proud region of Croatia-icon Croatiaball.


Istria problem

That's how it looked like when Croatia, Slovenia and Italy fought for Istria after World War I.

Istriaball used to be 50% Croatian; 30% Italian and 20% Slovenian back in 1911. That's why Croatia-icon Croatiaball, Slovenia-icon Sloveniaball and Italy-icon Italyball fought for it so long, but in 1918 Istria became part of Kingdom of Italyball. During World War 2 Italian Empireball tried to italianizate Istriaball and remove all Croats. But in 1945. Yugoslaviaball liberated Istriaball from Italy-icon Italyball because Italy-icon Italyball was not stronk anymore. The northern part (ethnic Slovenian part) became part of SR Sloveniaball, and the Istrian peninsula (ethnic Croatian part) became part of SR Croatiaball. Triesteball stayed part of Italy-icon Italyball. Istriaball was happy beeing part of Yugoslaviaball until the 80s, after Tito's death. After the collapse of Yugoslaviaball, Istrian regionalists wanted to declare independence from Croatiaball, because of the war, and the bad economy in the early 90s. About 70% are Croats, 10% Istrian regionalists, 6% Germans, 6% Italians, 3% Serbs, 2% Bosniaks, 1% Albanians and 2% other live in Istria.
