Italy, officially the Papal Kingdom of Italy is a liberal Federal Constitutional Monarchy located in Europe.
It was founded in 1861 under Giuseppe Garibaldi as the Federal Republic of Italy. The Papal States still held Rome however, but instead of attacking the Papal States, which would've had a massive outrage, Garibaldi made peace with Pius XI, and he would rule Italy as a constitutional Monarch and Garibaldi as Head of State.
Under Garibaldi, Italy saw massive decentralization with many Italian Provinces having high autonomy. A unified Italian Language inspired by all dialects was crafted and highly encouraged by the government. People began to see themselves more as "Italian" rather than Sicilian or Venetian. In the 1870's, Garibaldi made sweeping reforms such as Universal Sufferage, Abolition of Ecclesiastical Property, Emancipation of Women, and Maintenance of a Standing Army.
