Sardinia, officially the Republic of Sardinia, was a short-lived state located in the mediterranean sea. Sardinia was a neutral republic that broke away from Italy following the Communist victory in the Italian general elections.
The Republic of Sardinia came to an end when the Communist insurgency finally took down the government, and Sardinia was officially annexed by the Italian Worker's Republic.
