  1. NOVA ROMA

    Part I: the invasion of Croatia20191225165814_1.thumb.jpg.23655ab79ff08ada6c94a35936c7a590.jpg

    The Roman Empire spanned from 27BC to 476 AD, and for the eastern half, to 1453 AD. It was the first country that you could consider Italy. Since then, Italy had been divided for 1,390 years longer. That was, until, the Kingdom of Italy was founded. Then, Mousillini hijacked it and tried to restore the great empire of the past. He was unsuccessful. Since then, no attempts to restore Rome had been made. That was until a 39 year old Italian man named Giovanni Belino won the 2017 election. He campaigned for a restoration of mare nostrum, or as he called it, Nova Roma. He had won the election getting 61% of the popular vote.

    On January 10 2018, Belino had begun his first term. He took control of a corrupt and economically unsound nation. It's current situation wasn't all that great, but Roman restoration was far from impossible, as Trump had disbanded NATO a few months back. It was time to get to work.20191225165904_1.thumb.jpg.04765c6881046c24b3fdf1238e7ef9ba.jpg

    First, the taxes were soared up. This made people unhappy, but they stopped caring after a couple weeks. Belino also called technolagy "The best path" and brought it up well.20191225170153_1.thumb.jpg.048420fe906da785ee88ae6ccea5fe12.jpg

    Belino immediately ordered the army to prepare a naval invasion of Croatia. According to a poll, about 58% of the people objected to this act at the time, seeing it in ways that range from cruel to jumping too fast. Either way, 90% of the army followed his orders while the rest stayed home.20191225170244_1.thumb.jpg.4eefede32d680bfbffefa2497cdf92d5.jpg

    By March, the Italian army was ready to invade Croatia at a moments notice. At this time, only 31% of people opposed his decison as he faked an insult from Croatia. Croatia tried to deny it but it was too late

    It was time for the beginning of Nova Roma.20191225170340_1.thumb.jpg.869a0f5e5475bfb80cd619d585c9d153.jpg

    Soldiers were then ordered to pour in along the Croatian coast. The Croatian government was in chaos, fearing annexation. Their fears were correct.20191225170350_1.thumb.jpg.b3320cecea585710c838ccc7044077db.jpg

    The First Regiment quickly ran over Istria, while Those invading Rjeka were captured and taken prisoner, although they did knock most of the Croatian army there out.20191225170359_1.thumb.jpg.2aa7da323ee2e8ea00bb9c0d8f882917.jpg

    While south Dalmatia was also steamrolled, the Third Italian Regiment was too narrowly destroyed by the Croatians. It was clear that reinforcments were needed.20191225170459_1.thumb.jpg.7cd814d25970f224d5d4228a8c4ec914.jpg

    After a massive Croatian army recaptured Istria, Belino raised the Sixth Italian regiment from Pescara. They invaded the Rjeka area. By this time, war fever was in full force.20191225170508_1.thumb.jpg.01e7322b808f2732cc913d00a506e416.jpg

    The Italian army, despite losing nearly half of their army, was successful, capturing Rjeka and surrounding areas.20191225170516_1.thumb.jpg.7b869a7b4ebebf5d54031135c6d3971f.jpg

    What they did not expect, although, was for the army that steamrolled Istria to return, a move that destroyed the Sixth Italian Regiment.20191225170526_1.thumb.jpg.8c85e0ad5e1032a57617f4d5e7ba16a4.jpg

    This really turned on the war fever, as Belino recruited nearly 5,000 volunteers from Pescara alone. They were ready to attack just as 81% of Italians supported the war.20191225170539_1.thumb.jpg.5246bf6ed8e61d81387c5f1a3755c180.jpg

    A week later, Croatia tried to invade through Pescara. This won't end well for them!20191225170557_1.thumb.jpg.6c4398c110218fb0377460c8f47ad11a.jpg

    Unsuprisingly, they were repelled. Belino then ordered the Seventh Italian Regiment to invade from Istria.20191225170609_1.thumb.jpg.2103f3391d19bd30ded4c9613a420ee2.jpg

    And the plan worked.

    An invasion of Rjeka then commenced.20191225170641_1.thumb.jpg.0cdd00d400de44942a976218cd3c0b64.jpg

    This then was forwarded to Dalmatia and also straight towards the capital, Zagreb.20191225170657_1.thumb.jpg.75a315ff629efe3e3c1228ae5a81730b.jpg

    The Croatian government fleed, exiling to Hungary. Now, the capital was captured, all that was needed was to occupy the east of the country.20191225170710_1.thumb.jpg.29d6415b8a1027b01289d2e03f4c2e19.jpg

    And so, the entire rest of the country collapsed. Belino made a speech in occupied Croatia to not worry and that they will all be fine as long as they accept their new cause.

    And with that, the entire country was occupied.

    The Croatian government-in-exile reluctantly agreed to their countriy's entire annexation.20191225170808_1.thumb.jpg.1e1ce8c27806a618f912e8e7659f6acf.jpg

    And so, the war was over. After about six months of fighting, the nation of Italy had annexed Croatia.

     

    That is all for today. New episode tomorrow!
