Nation Information[]

Italy (Officially: Italian Republic; Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a medium sized, mostly developed, and old nation with citizens primarily of Italian ethnicity whose religion is Buddhism. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Repubblica Italiana work diligently to produce Wheat and Marble as tradable resources for their nation. It is a mostly neutral country when it comes to foreign affairs. It will usually only attack another nation if attacked first. Repubblica Italiana is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. Plans are on the way within Repubblica Italiana to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Repubblica Italiana allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Free speech is considered taboo in Repubblica Italiana. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. The government of Repubblica Italiana will trade with any other country regardless of ethical consequences.

Life in fascist Italy (June–November 2009)[]

Since June 2009 to November 2009, life in Borghese's Italy was little different from other dictatorships. People had little control over their personal life and the state controlled as much of you as they can. Those who opposed the state were suitably punished.

Dealing with opposition[]

All Italians were expected to obey Boghese and his Fascist Party. Authority was enforced by the use of the Blackshirts – the nickname for the Fasci da Combattimento. Those men in this unit were usually ex-soldiers and it was their job to bring into line those who opposed Borghese. The motto of the Blackshirts was "Me ne frego" ("I do not give a damn"). The Blackshirts maintained an iron rule in Italy, but murderous tactics were rarely used.

When Borghese said: "Italy wants peace and quiet, work and calm. I will give these things with love if possible and with force if necessary." the message was clear – those who wanted to rock the boat would be suitably dealt with.

Italy had a secret police under Borghese. It was called the OVRA. It was formed in July 2009. The death penalty was restored under Borghese for serious offences. Yet since the Fascist Revolution only 4 people had been sentenced to death. 3000 people were arrested by the OVRA and sent to prison. This figure was massively overshadowed by the actions of the State Police and the Blackshirts.

Prisons were set up on remote towns in the alps or the appennines. Condition for those sentenced to the prisons here were crude and many anti-Fascists simply left Italy for their own safety.

Education in Fascist Italy[]

Adults who opposed Borghese were dealt with harshly. However, the children were the Fascists of the future and Borghese took a keen interest in the state’s education system and the youth organisations that existed in Italy. Members of the Balilla had to remember the following:

"I believe in Rome, the Eternal, the mother of my country……I believe in the genius of Borghese…and in the resurrection of the Empire."

The glory of the old Roman Empire always lurked in the background of much of what children do. A child in a youth movements was a "legionary" while an adult officer was a "centurion" – a throw back to the days of when the Ancient Roman army dominated much of western Europe.

Women in Fascist Italy[]

Women were seen as having a specific role in Fascist Italy. The task of young girls was to get married and have children – lots of them. Borghese believed that his Italy had a smaller population than it should have. How could it possibly be a power to reckon with, without a substantial population and a substantial army? Women were encouraged to have children and the more children bring better tax privileges. Large families got better tax benefits but bachelors are hit by high taxation.

Families were given a target of 5 children. Mothers who produced more were warmly received by the Fascist government. However, the "Battle for Births" was a failure. Though the population grown people were living longer due to better medical care, the birth rate went down between September and October 2009.

Politics of the Italian Republic[]

The politics of Italy take place in a framework of a democratic parliamentary Republic, and of a multi party system. Executive power is exercised by the Government which is led by the Provisional Head of Government, Minister Roberto Ciano.

Government of italy[]

As the Head of State, General Junio Borghese represents the unity of the nation. He serves President of the Republic, he appoints the executive. He is also the commander-in-chief of armed forces.

Legislative power is vested in the Senate of the Republic house of parliament primarily, and secondarily on the Chamber of Representatives. The judiciary is independent from the executive and the legislative branches. Italy is a multiparty democracy since Junio Borghese called the election of a Constituent Assembly.

Junio Borghese[]

Born to a Roman noble family, Junio Borghese's experience of populism led him to found the emerging ultra-nationalist National Fascist Party as a founder member in June 2009. He led the disastrous Southern Italian campaign in Mid June, following the collapse of the Greater Nordic Reich. After withstanding encirclement campaigns launched by Southern Italian leader Emperor Constantine Cato, Borghese led survivors in Northern Italy.

In an attempt to break with the German model of Nationalism and to catch up with more advanced nations, Borghese proposed that Italy should make a "great leap forward" into modernisation. He began a militant two months plan to promote technology and agricultural self-sufficiency. Overnight factory construction work began. Labour-intensive methods were introduced and farming collectivised on a massive scale. The campaign created about five industrial areas.

His Fascist Revolution was a political campaign - a social experiment aimed at rekindling nationalist fervour and purifying the nation. General Junio Borghese directed popular anger against other members of the party and dissidents. While others were removed from office, General Borghese was named Father of the Fatherland and promoted General. Hundreds were forced into manual labour, and thousands were arrested. The result was massive civil unrest, and the army was sent in to control disorder. The cleansing was declared officially to have ended with the reunification of the country in mid August.

In the second week of November 2009, General Junio Borghese announced the process of democratization of the country. He declared himself Presidente ad Vitam and paved the way for democratization of the country.

Italian Somalia[]

Italian dictator Junio Borghese had long held a desire for a new Italian Empire. Reminiscent of the Roman Empire, Borghese's new empire was to rule over the Mediterranean and East Africa.

His new empire would also avenge past Italian defeats. Chief among these defeats was the Italo-Somalian war, fought on Italian soil in the last week of June 2009. Borghese promised the Italian people "a place under the sun", matching the extensive colonial empires of the past.

On September 28, 2009, Italian troops and Colonists land in Somalia and establish a Colonial Government (Governo Coloniale della Somalia Italiana). The Governor General of Somalia is Colonel Siad Barre.

On December 9, 2009 an unprovoked attack by Carthaginian and Mechodamian forces, has taken with force the colony.

He drove immediatly to the Quirinal Hill and already proclaimed Rome capital of the Italian Republic.

The people of Rome have crowded ont o the streets to welcome the troops of the Italian Republic. Italy is reunificated, Italy is now more than a geographical term.

The first Italian soldiers, reached the centre of Rome in the evening after encountering no resistance from locals and security forces still loyal to the "Imperial" government. This event brings to an end the long hostility between the Republic led by Junio Borghese and the Imperivm Romanvm led by Emperor Constantine Cato.

The occupation was described as "Peaceful and well welcomed by the whole Italian people. Since my appointment as President of the Italian Republic, the supreme goal was to reunificate the peninsula under one, truly Italian government. This is not an invasion, this is not an occupation, this is the reunification of a territory rightfully belonging to the Republic, to the People of Italy, the sons of mars, the sons of the wolf. Shall united Italy last forever, shall we live forever in brotherhood and friendship" said General Junio borghese in a radio broadcast.

General Junio Borghese declared the state of siege in Rome tonight after twenty thousands blackshirts led by Benito Mussolini gathered up in the nation's largest cities and in the center of the capital. The coup attempt followed soaring inflation, rising unemployment, a devalued currency and the bankrupt of the northern steel industries.

The blackshirts demanded Borghese to appoint Mussolini as Prime Minister, or he will be deposed by force.

Reporting from Rome - General Junio Borghese ordered a total crackdown on dissidents in the Partito Fascista Repubblicano and followers of Deputy Benito Mussolini, vowing to strive for "national greatness" as army and police firing tear gas and swinging truncheons quelled a demonstration outside the parliament where he was sworn in.

  • September 8, 2009

After the March on Rome that unified Italy, the Republican Military Government started considering ways to ideologize the Italian society, with an accent on schools. National Education Minister Renato Ricci has the task of "reorganizing the youth from a moral and physical point of view".

"Fascist education is moral, physical, social, and military: it aims to create a complete and harmoniously developed human, a fascist one according to our views. Childhood and adolescence alike cannot be fed solely by concerts, theories, and abstract teaching. The truth we aim to teach them should appeal foremost to their fantasy, to their hearts, and only then to their minds. Educational values set through action and example will replace established approaches"

The youth program "Balilla" is named after the moniker of a Genoese boy who, according to local legend, started the revolt of 1746 against the Habsburg forces that occupied the city in the War of the Austrian Succession. Balilla was chosen as the inspiration for his supposed age and revolutionary activity, while his presence in the fight against the invader inspired the irredentist stance taken by Italian Fascism.

"It was a race against time and we won," Italian Culture Minister Renato Ricci said as he was shown the results. Two blank vaults on the ceiling, which once contained Michelangelo frescoes, are still awaiting restoration. Experts say that between 70% and 80% of the fragments have been recovered. The basilica complex is one of the most visited and venerated Roman Catholic shrines.

White smoke appeared today at 0.42AM local time over the Sistine Chapel in Rome - the first sign that a new Pope had been elected by the Conclave of Cardinals. A few minutes later, the bells of St. Peter's Basilica began ringing, confirming the election. Camillo Cardinal Borghese had been selected as the successor to John Paul II as the 265th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, and will be known as Pope Paul VII

The new Pope appeared to the public within an hour of the first announcement. He appeared on the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica and delivered a short address to the crowd in Italian. Tens of thousands of people were in St Peter's Square to observe the results of the election.

The election of Camillo Cardinal Borghese, follows the process of normalization and re-conciliation between Italy and the Roman Chatolic Church. Paul VII also claimed to be the legal successor to the throne of Peter in Rome and refused to recognize any other Pope elected after the death of John Paul II in 2005. The Republican Military Government expressed satisfaction.

At the beginning of 2006 the majority of italians was catholic. But the interruption of Papal elections paved the way to new cults and religions to be spread in the country. In the last years, the great churches were smashed, their content looted and the authorities sought to eradicate all traces of religion with laws and bans, until General Junio Borghese, with a controversial political move, signed a concordate with the new Church of Rome and Pope Paul VI Borghese, who claims to be the true successor to the throne of Peter in Rome.

Recent studies show Italy's new religious majority found its roots in the cold lands of Scandinavia and Germania. Chatolicism in Italy has been strangled by political instability prior to July 2009 and the numerous wars destroyed everything, the churches were burned, the cathedrals closed, books were retranslated.

Several reasons may be posited for the rapid growth of non-christian cults in Italy today. The continuing ‘open-door’ policy reserved to allies such Nordheim and Transvaal and Italy’s growing openness to the Nordic world. With the vast increase of tourists and businessmen in Italy, Italy is no longer cut off from the world. Religious ideas, including cultic ones, have a much greater freedom to gain entry. It should be noted that cults strongly based in Germany and former Nordland have made far greater inroads into Italy than the Transvaler-based cults such as Protestantism.

The question facing the country now is whether traditional Roman Chatolicism, in its critically weakened state, will withstand the foreign onslaught - or whether Norse religion will peacefully succeed where chatolicism so brutally failed in the past. Many analysts and authorities are skeptical towards the northern cult, which does not seem to resemble the Latin roots of italian society.

On the same day the Republican Military Government announced today that Italy had begun removing seals at several nuclear facilities in the area of Turin. The Government stated that Italy intended to begin enriching uranium—the critical step in making material for nuclear weapons—a move some European countries have tried to prevent over the last month.

The enrichment of any uranium by Italy, even in small quantities, amounts to a significant ratcheting up of the tension between Italy and Molakia over its, until now dead, nuclear program. Italy has been warned that any enrichment of nuclear fuel will constitute a "red line" it must not cross. Longtime Italy observers are taken aback by the boldness of Italy's move.

"When we learned last week that Italy was going to resume some 'research and development' work in Turin, we assumed there would be some modest initial activity, such as the production of centrifuge components, but this is a much bigger step," said a foreign analyst. He added that mastering the operation in the North-West, an highly industrialized area, was a "significant milestone," giving Italy important experience in overcoming the technical hurdles of uranium enrichment that can be transferred to larger cascades.

General Junio Borghese announced a new government today, few weeks after the establishment of the "Triumvirate". The Triumvirate composed by General Borghese, Governor General Ciano and Commander Ricci, will mantain its role of "Military Junta", while the ministries have been reinstated and assigned to new prominent politicians of the Republican Fascist Party. Most of them are new to big politics.

Healthcare went to Alfredo Cucco, Communication to Augusto Liverani. National Education and Sport to Alessandro Pavolini, Agriculture to Augusto Liberani, Justice to Filippo Anfuso, Finance to Vincenzo Azzolini. The Interior and State Activities portfolio was handed to Carlo Alberto Biggini who had been MVSN chief-of-staff.

The Chief of the National Nuclear Program is Vito Volterra, an experienced researcher. Governor General Roberto Ciano maintained the Foreign Affairs portfolio, and Commander Renato Ricci was transfered to Defence.

"Dalmatian Prime Minister Michael Visari and German Kanzler Tambarskjelve will visit Rome today" General Junio Borghese said, in a new sign that Rome is reviving a Nordland-era cooperation and friendship "And this will be yet another contribution to the development of ties. Their visit is yet more evidence that relations between Italy, Germany and Dalmatia are developing in a very dynamic way" he added.

Italy has been trying to restore its Nordland-era relations with Germany and Dalmatia by expanding trade and cultural ties. Its efforts are intended partly to show displeasure with the anti-Nord sentiment expressed by Molakia and Euzkadi in the past months, accused by Borghese of implementing interventionist policies that have destabilized Europe.

"Cooperation between Italy, Germany and Dalmatia in the technological-cultural sphere is developing normally ... and every country has the right to define with whom it will develop such cooperation," Governor General of Italian Somalia and Minister of Foreign Affairs Roberto Ciano told reporters in Mogadiscio "Italy will not ask permission from any other country and will not explain it to anyone. Cooperation between Italy, Germany and Dalmatia in this area will always be directed to widening the friendship and the defense capabilities of Italy," he added.

Junio Borghese said Italy's technology pact with Germany was "An important component of our close partnership." Germany was Rome's main benefactor during the Nordland era but the collapse of the Greater Nordlandic Reich dealt a heavy blow to Italy's economy. Relations were reopened only few months ago. General Borghese said the two countries had "overcome that pause" and contacts were now intense.

Rome has been taking a greater interest in Central Europe and the Balkans, a strategy that political analysts and diplomats say has more to do with selling arms to the region than with flexing its muscles under the nose of Molakia.

  • October 23, 2009

The Republican Military Government decided today to lift a ban on the members of the royal family returning from exile, paving the way for a possible homecoming by heir to the throne of the House of Savoy. Analysts welcomed the government's move to amend two half-century-old constitutional clauses, which barred the House of Savoy entering Italy as punishment for abandoning the country in wartime.

"It is important that the Republican Military Government turn over a page of history," said General Junio Borghese. He said the exile had lasted too long and that the Savoys' return was "absolutely right".

Italy will remain a republic and the Savoys will be expected to renounce politics and any claim to former royal properties - although not a passion for guns, women and football. Mr Emanuele was nine years old when he sailed from Naples in 1946 to follow his father, Umberto II, Italy's last king, into exile after Italians chose a republic over a monarchy in a referendum. A constitutional amendment two years later barred their return.

The Savoys ruled parts of Italy and France from the 11th century and the unified Italian state from 1871, but the family name turned to mud during the reign of Umberto's father, Vittorio Emanuel III, who brought Italy to the defeat in the Second World War. Fleeing Rome in 1943 generated a contempt which still endures. The Savoys moved to a lakeside villa in Switzerland and have lobbied successive governments to lift the constitutional ban.

Italy launched a domestically made satellite into orbit for the first time today, prompting further details over Italy's nuclear ambitions. The Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (Italian Space Agency) said the launch of Alis Aquilae I° ("On an eagle's wings") research and telecom satellite is a major step in its space technology timed to coincide with the end of technology exportations and a major modernization of the military.

The long-range ballistic technology used to put satellites into orbit could also be used for launching warheads, although Italy says it has no plans to do so.

"Dear Italian nation, your children have placed the first indigenous satellite into orbit," General Junio Borghese said in a televised message, adding the launch was successful. The Agenzia Spaziale Italiana said Alis Aquilae I° was orbiting Bob "We have established communications with it and the necessary information has been received."

Sending Alis Aquilae I° into space is a message to the world that Italy is "very powerful and you have to deal with us in the right way," an Italian political analyst said.

In an exclusive interview with RAI Radio-Television, Italian Somalia’s newly-appointed Governor General, Colonel Siad Barre, a prominent figure of the pro-Borghese politicians of Somalia, said his priority will be to “re-confirm the credibility of the colony and improve its wealth”.

“I will follow the guidelines of the Republican Military Government and the Colonial Government of Italian Somalia to improve social services and reaffirm the friendly relations between the natives and the colonists. The Italians saved my people and my country from anarchy and lawlessness, their intervention was our salvation.” the 50 year-old Colonel pledged “I was surprised to have been chosen” Barre said.

He replaced Roberto Ciano, who held the position for one month after being appointed by General Borghese to supervise infrastructure and social projects. Asked what needs to change in Italian Somalia, now the most advanced, most developed region in the Horn of Africa, Barre told RAI: “We need to reinforce unity in Somalia and reaffirm the people’s confidence in the Italian Colonial Government”.

Colonel Siad Barre previously held two senior posts in Mr Ciano's Colonial Government, first as Head of the Colonial Police of Italian Somalia, then as Chief of Public Security. Reaction to Siad Barre’s appointment has been positive in Somalia and Italy “He’s been in the local government before so he’s aware of the political game he will have to play,” an analyst said.

Pope Paul VI Borghese, the 265° Bishop of Rome and Pope of the Roman Chatolic Church, has died at the age of 75.

The Pope died in his private apartment at the Vatican at 10.00am today, surrounded by his closest Italian aides. Many thousands of people gathered in Rome's St Peter's Square to pay tribute to the pontiff, while church bells throughout the city began tolling. The Pope had suffered worsening health problems including a heart condition "Our Holy Father Paul VI Borghese has returned to the house of the Father". Vatican spokesman said a mass was held at his bedside by senior officials before his death. The Pope then received the Viaticum, a Catholic rite for the sick and dying.

The Italian government has declared three days of mourning.

News of the Pope's death was received with intense emotion The Pope is to lie in state in St Peter's Basilica from Thusday afternoon, the Vatican said. The funeral date has not been set but it is not expected before Saturday.

Pope Paul VI Borghese died after suffering from heart and kidney problems and unstable blood pressure. Minutes after his death, the Vatican issued a brief statement to confirm the news, adding that procedures to be carried out in the event of the death of the Pope had been set in motion.

The Pope's death was immediately announced to the crowds gathered in St Peter's Square. The news was met with long applause, an Italian sign of respect, followed by several minutes of silence as the crowd took in the news. A RAI Radio-Television's correspondent at the Vatican, says people in the square stood in groups, comforting one other.

In the Pope's native neighborhood, Roma-Trastevere, people fell to their knees and wept as the news reached them. Tributes have been coming in from political and religious leaders in other parts of the country. General Junio Borghese, grandson of Paul VI Borghese, said he was deeply saddened by the death of a Pope whom he described as a tireless advocate of peace and freedom of religion.

Few hours later, white smoke appeared on the Sistine Chapel when, taking the name Pope Benedict XVII, someone appeared on the balcony of St Peter's Basilica. His arrival was greeted by loud cheers from the many thousands of pilgrims who had packed St Peter's Square as news of his election spread across Rome.

"Today Italy reached a tremendous achievement, the era of blockade and naval threats is over. Our Navy will defend the Republic with courage and honour" Admiral Pugliese said "And for now the Italian Republic is the only active nation in the fight against piracy in Somalia" he said.

Besides the launching of the first fleet, protective measures by merchant ships, including pulling up ladders to stop pirates climbing on board, travelling at high speeds and staying in close radio contact with other vessels and international warships, have contributed to a recent reduction in successful attacks.

The Suprema Corte di Cassazione (Supremee Court of last resort) ruled that crucifixes should be removed from Italian classrooms and public buildings. The case was brought to the Constitutional Court. Using the principle of freedom of religion, the Constitutional Court said that crucifix in public buildings are against the principle of secularism of the state. The court also said putting a crucifix in a classroom restricts the right of parents to educate their children in conformity with their convictions.

Displaying crucifixes also restricts the "right of children to believe or not to believe" and could be "disturbing for students" from other religions and ethnic minorities. The Supreme Court of last resort, agreed with this view and ruled in favour, ordering the Italian government to remove the religious symbol from public schools and public buildings.

Representative of the major chatolic organizations said: "The ruling of the Supreme Court of last resort was received with shock and sadness." It was "wrong and myopic" to try to exclude a symbol of charity from education, they added. "Religion offered a vital contribution to the moral formation of people". Describing the rulling as "Strong but necessary", General Junio Borghese said: "It must be enforced with firmness. Italy has its culture, its traditions and its history, but religion symbols cannot be enforced. Those who come among us must understand and accept this."

Italian Foreign Minister, Roberto Ciano, said the court's decision had dealt a "Necessary blow to religious fundamentalism in an Italy of values and rights," adding it was a good precedent for other countries.

In a statement, Chatolic organizations added: “the Crucifix has always been a sign of God’s love, unity and welcoming for all humanity. It is sad that it might be considered as a sign of division, of exclusion or limitation of freedoms” but General Borghese answered "If the crucifix is a sign of God's love, is the electric chair a sign of Dr. Alfred P. Southwick's love?"

The Second Republic and the transition to democracy[]

  • November 11, 2009

The Italian government has decided to bring timely changes to the country's coat of arms and bring it into force today, the RAI Radio Television reported. According to RAI, the new coat of arms is based on the Republic's desire for peace and progress, the strenght of the Italian people, the distinguished landscape of the country, national unity and self-pride.

The emblem comprises a white five-pointed star, with a fine red border, superimposed upon a five-spoked cogwheel, standing between an olive branch to the dexter side and an oak branch to the sinister side; the green branches are in turn bound together by a red ribbon bearing the inscription REPVBBLICA ITALIANA in white capital letters.

As it was not designed to conform to traditional heraldic rules, it does not have a formal blazon. The dominant element, however, is the five-pointed Stellone d'Italia (Italy's Big Star); an ancient secular symbol of Italy. Iconographic of the Renaissance, it is usually seen shining radiant over Italia Turrita, the personification of Italy. The star marked the first award of Republican reconstruction, the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity, and still indicates membership of the Armed Forces today. The steel cogwheel which surrounds it refers to the Constitution of the Italian Republic: Italy is a fascist republic, built on labour

At the top, its shape also recalls a mural crown, as worn by Italia Turrita (meaning with towers), typical of Italian civic heraldry of communal origin. Both oak and olive trees are characteristic of the Italian landscape. While the oak branch is symbolic of the strength and dignity of the Italian people, the olive branch represents the Republic’s desire for peace, both harmony at home and brotherhood abroad, as expressed in the Constitution: Italy repudiates war as an instrument of aggression

The Comment: "Italy's crumbling revolution - Are Military rule days numbered?

Political analysts tend to describe the current situation in Italy in alarmist terms, suggesting that the days of the Regime are numbered, the political and legal system faces heavy reforms and "democratization", and the country is prone to political changes. These changes and prospectives for heavy reforms don't come from political minorities in exile, but directly from the highest ranks of the Republican Military Government.

Even if these assessments are premature or extreme, the relentless confrontations between the "reformist" and the "conservative" in the Republican Military Government augur a turbulent political future. The June revolution faces a profound challenge from a new and disenchanted generation, widely known in Italy as "the Second Republic." For this broad swath of political society born after june, Junio Borghese's promise of a just and free Italian society has proven a success, and therefore the end of Military rule and return to a Democratic-Republicn government might be in sight. After five months of fascist rule, Italy is now by all accounts politically repressed, but economically strong, and socially peaceful and united. And the ruling fascist oligarchy lacks any effective solutions for this rather internal desire for change.

General Junio Borghese unexpectectly announced a political plan today to guide Italy from military rule to civilian democracy by March 2010. Tonight, in a national broadcast watched by his countrymen, the General said five months would be needed to prepare Italy for civilian rule.

Values do not change overnight, nor do people change old habits as if one were switching off and switching on the light. Military rule, if enforced too long in a peaceful and stable country like Italy, might bring unnecessary violence and dissent. I hereby declare myself Presidente a Vita (Life President), and start the democratization process that will return Italy to civilian rule. However, restrictions will be still enforced on anarchists and communists who will not be allowed to take part to political activities" the General said.

In five month of independence from the former Greater Nordic Reich, Italy's economy and technology level reached the standards of many Central European countries such the Rheinmark and Deutschland.

Economy and infrastructure have been fully restored and reached the level of a first world country, our mission is almost completed the General said today listing the achievements of the Republican Military Government during its mandate. Law, Public Administration, Social Services and Investments have been perfected brilliantly by the Regime.

Earlier today, the Government released a 200-page white paper that detailed the transition to civilian rule. The timetable provides for a constituent assembly in January, removal of a ban on party politics except communist and anarchist, regional elections and census in February, and general and local elections in March.

Italy's Constitution, adopted in 1948 but largerly reformed by the Republican Military Government, is expected to be retained largely intact. But in one major change, the number of political parties is to be limited to four. Provisions that have not changed include: a bicameral legislature (Senate and Chamber of Deputies), and a restriction limiting Prime Ministers to two terms of four months each.

In his speech, General Junio Borghese warned politicians not to try to speed up the transition.

The Government does not recognize any sacred cow and would like to remind politicians that the ban on party or partisan politics is still very much in force, he said. Today, the Republican Military Government report rejected the privatization of major companies. The military also rejected the imposition of a political ideology on the nation. The Government believes an ideology will eventually evolve with time and a political maturity of the country, the report said.

General Junio Borghese also pointed Italian Somalia will remain under Italian rule, but with the guidance of Colonel Siad Barre, the colony will obtain more autonomy from Rome, and be allowed to design a new flag and a new coat of arms according to the country's history and culture.

General Junio Borghese freed several prominent political prisoners today and Human Right organizations urged authorities to release all persons held for nonviolent political activities and to end the harassment of former political prisoners. Authorities conditionally released 3500 political prisoners, who have been imprisoned since June 2009.

"Italy's release of the political prisoners is good news," said a prominent human rights activist "But a truly historic change would be general amnesty for people convicted for their nonviolent political beliefs and activities, and an end to the harassment of former political prisoners." Italian authorities also said they have in recent days freed another 500 persons convicted of crimes for their roles in protests during June about social and economic conditions in Milan.

All of the freed prisoners reportedly received a "conditional release," meaning they could be re-imprisoned without a trial before the expiration of their sentences for unspecified misconduct, until the new democratic Constitution is approved. Former political prisoners in Italy routinely face months of harassment by the authorities after their release from detention, including intensive police surveillance, restrictions on their movement within the country and a refusal to issue them passports.

The courts had initially sentenced several of the prisoners to life jail terms, later commuted to periods of up to 30 years. General Borghese cracked down on dissidents in June.

Despite today's releases, hundreds of Italians remain imprisoned for politically motivated offenses after being convicted in trials that lacked basic fair-trial guarantees, such as credible investigations into allegations by defendants that their interrogators had tortured them to force them to sign false confessions.

MOGADISCIO, Italian Somalia - The Colonial Government of Italian Somalia presided over by Colonel Siad Barre decided today to remove, under direct orders from the Government of Rome, the roman faces from its national coat of arms and approved a new version of the coat to reflect the historical roots and landscape of the country.

Italian Somalia is the last political entity of the Italian Republican Military Government breaking all ties with its fascist symbols. Italian Somalia's current coat of arms was originally created in 1936. The national flag will be the Italian Tricolour, without the roman eagle.

ROMA, Italy - The ovra, the most dreaded force in Fascist society, was ordered dismantled today and its spying and information-gathering duties entrusted to a new, separate agency.

The landmark decision by Junio Borghese and the other members of the ruling Republican Military Government was openly aimed at breaking the OVRA's stranglehold on state security functions, which made it an indispensable but ultimately dangerous adjunct of power.

By order of Junio Borghese and the Ministries of the Republican Military Government who attended the plenary assembly of the Parliament, the OVRA is to be supplanted by the DISR "Dipartimento delle Informazioni per la Sicurezza della Repubblica" (Department of Information Security of the Republic), an inter-republic agency for counterespionage and a government committee to command the OVRA's border guards.

The reform evidently brings to a definitive end the organized surveillance of citizens' political views, a classic OVRA function that made the committee the nemesis of human rights advocates and countless others, linking the OVRA in the world's eyes to the most cynical, brutal abuses of Fascist power.
