Alliance Affiliations Edit
The Nation of Italgria, ruled by Sir Volpe, started out as a new nation in The Foreign Division. Due to the nation's newness, it was unable to cope with being in the alliance and had to join the lower \m/ alliance. After his nation was blown to bits, Sir Volpe took refuge in the New Pacific Order until finally deciding it was time to tempt fate and try TFD once again.
Inter-Alliance Wars Edit
Italgria took down 11 members of the Federation of Armed Nations during the FAN War, putting itself among one of the most active in war. It was also a big factor in the UJP War, taking down another five members and two members of the Grand Global Alliance. After that, Italgria only took on rogues. It has taken down seven of them. Sir Volpe still tries to get as close to war as he can, which is why he became the Minister of TFD's Security.
Making His Way Edit
When Sir Volpe could not decide where he should go, he tried to make a living by selling products; however, few of them actually worked out. Such products were:

The citizens of Italgria decided to party with all the money gained. However, they were then forced to sell their homes to make up for the effects of 100% satisfaction clause when many people brought the rewinders back to the stores.
Second Attempt - Xbox ShoeEditBought by many gamers and geeks alike, this ensured that people could still play video games at their friend's house when controllers were short. It was one of the more profitable items created by the people of Italgria, generating the money that got them to where they are now.
