Kingdom of Italyball is a former country. He is Italy-icon Italyball in his youth when he was a kingdom. In 1925 he became a fascist and joined the Axis Powers and aligned himself with Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball in the years leading up to World War II. After the war began, he joined the Axis war effort, but suffered horribly and was defeated by 1943 where he switched through a decree and a disagreement with his fascist self, thus making the Italian Social Republic-icon Italian Social Republicball and so joined the Allies for the remainder of the war. In 1946 he became a republic. 

History

Unification (1848-1871)

The Italian stateballs had been divided for centuries since the fall of the glorious SPQR-icon SPQRball in 476 AD, but only after the Enlightenment and subsequent 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, Sardinia-Piedmont-icon Kingdom of Sardiniaball annexed many of the Northern Italian Stateballs, such as Tuscany-icon Tuscanyball, Modenaball, Massa-icon Massaball and Parmaball. He then fought a war against Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball Austrian Empire-icon (crown) Habsburgball with the help of France-icon Franceball to liberate Lombardia, in exchange for giving Nice and Savoy to Franceball.

Then in 1860, Sardinia-icon Sardiniaball led his Redshirts' Expedition of the Thousand to Two Siciliesball's clay, which was then forced to join the new union, leading to Sardinia-icon Sardiniaball to proclaim himself as Italian-Empire-icon Kingdom of Italyball in 1861. He then set about reclaiming 'Italia Irredenta' (Unredeemed Italy). In 1866, he teamed up with Kingdom of Prussia-icon Prussiaball against Austrian Empire-icon (crown) Habsburgball again, gaining Venice from Franceball, who had obtained it from Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball directly. Then Italyball turned on France-icon Franceball's ally Papal States-icon Papal Statesball while France-icon Franceball was distracted by the North German stateballs during the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71. Rome was 'liberated' by Italyball, and became the new capital, with Papal States-icon Papal Statesball protesting vehemently.

Italia Irredenta! (1871-1915)

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

By 1900 Italyball had established himself 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 Austria-Hungaryball annexed Bosnia-Herzegovina outright from a dying Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball, causing Italyball to declare war for the Dodecanese Islands, and Cyrenaicaball (now Libya-icon Libyaball) and his clay in 1911-12. He stayed neutral for the first few months of the Great War when it broke out in August 1914, because German Empire-icon German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball were the aggressors, but the Allies convinced Italyball to join them in 1915 with promises of Dalmatia-icon Dalmatia, Trentino-icon Trentino, Istria-icon Istria, and colonies.

Viva Il Duce! (1915-1939)

Vincere e vinceremo!

Italyball fought hard against Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, with whom he was evenly matched in the Julian Alps, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917, but triumphed at Vittorio Veneto in 1918, shortly after which Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball signed an armistice at Vila Gusti. Italyball had been bankrupted by the war, and turned briefly towards socialism when he didn't get all he was expecting at the Peace Conference (he got only Trentino-icon Trentino, Free Imperial City of Trieste-icon Trieste, Istria-icon Istria, Fiume and Zadar-icon Zadar). In 1922 he became fascist and Marched on Rome-icon Rome; it took until 1925 for him to completely abandon democracy. In the 1920s, he pioneered aviation, and took part in pacifying a colonial uprising in Libya-icon Libya; in 1929 he signed the Lateran Pact with the new Vatican-icon Vatican City and in the 1930s, he began building up a vast armaments industry in preparation for war, as he had to prevent the newly Nazified Nazi-icon 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 Abyssiniaball (Ethiopia-icon Ethiopiaball) despite a mutual 1928 non-aggression pact. He invaded in 1935, using poison gas and bombers to massacre 8-icon 8balls, eventually annexing their clay to create Italian East Africaball. This led to international outrage, and League of Nations-icon League of Nationsball condemned Italyball's actions by introducing half-hearted economic sanctions. Italyball left the League and abandoned the democracies (UK-icon UKball and France-icon Franceball) in response, to formulate an alliance with Nazi-icon 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 Nationalist Spainball in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), and the lack of Italyball's criticism of Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball's remilitarization of the Rhinelands, then his Anschluss of Austriaball successfully conducted in March 1938. He stood by his new ally in the Czech-icon Czech crisis of September 1938. Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball pressured his friend into adopting racial laws against Israel-icon Jewcubes in 1938 as well.

Disastrous Warfare (1939-1947)

In March 1939, Italyball Invaded Albania-icon Albaniaball's clay, who had been his protectorate since 1926. He then signed the Pact of Steel with Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball; however he was left shocked when Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball signed a non-aggression pact with their mortal enemy Soviet-icon 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 Nazi Germanyball's blitzkrieg through Western Europe and the fall of France-icon Franceball in mid 1940, Italyball jumped in half-preparedly as always, resulting in him getting his ass handed to him by Franceball even when he was capitulating. Italyball got to occupy parts of Vichy France-icon Vichy Franceball's clay afterwards, though he got his ass kicked again by Kingdom of Greece-icon Greeceball in November 1940 when he tried to invade, resulting in Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball having to come bail him out the following year with a Balkan campaign. Italy occupied most of Greece, and some of the southern Balkans afterwards.UK-icon UKball had also bombed his fleet at Taranto.

Meanwhile, in 1941 UK-icon UKball and France-icon Free Franceball had liberated Abyssinia-icon Abyssinia in East Africa, and occupied his colonies there, as well as in Libya. His forces were hopeless in North Africa until Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball sent his panzers to help him out; then he was forced to send his troops to help invade Soviet-icon Sovietball's vast clay. Then USA-icon USAball and UK-icon UKball kicked them out of North Africa altogether, and even landed in Sardinia-icon Sardinia and Sicily-icon Sicily by mid 1943, pushing up into Campania. At this point, Italyball had spent his resources, and was tired of the war; he dropped fascism in the coup of 25 Luglio 1943, and signed an armistice, but then Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball occupied the north of his clay and created a puppet state, Italian Social Republic-icon Italian Social Republicball to continue the war as the Allies struggled up the Italian peninsula, with battles at Monte Cassio. Rome was liberated in mid 1944; but Italian Social Republic-icon Italian Social Republicball kept fighting until the surrender of Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball in May 1945.

After the disaster of the war, which had wrecked Italyball's clay and industry, he decided to dispose of the monarchy in a referendum in 1947 as he desperately attempted to gather hope in the monarchy, after having lost his colonies and having to pay reparations. So, in 1947, Italian-Empire-icon The Kingdom of Italy became a Italy-icon republic
