"The King was weak, Mussolini was delusional and the Democrats were vultures on a leash. Only through strength will Italy remain true to itself."
-Protector-General Loreto Aita

Loreto Aita currently serves as the first Protector-General of Italy after emerging victorious in the Italian Civil War, overthrowing the Italian Social Republic and crushing the Italian Resistance and Co-Belligerent Army. Since that day Loreto has done everything in his power to secure the new government in Italy, a government built to protect Italy and its people from the predations of other would-be conquerors and from the Socialist menace.

It should come as no surprise that Loreto has a strong hatred for Socialism as he sees Mussolini's Fascism and its cousin ideologies to be yet more symptoms of Socialism, even proclaiming Socialism as a whole to be 'the ideals of weak men filled with hate and corrupt ambition.' He similarly looks down on Democracy in favour of the ideals of Military Dictatorship, seeing Democracy as a failed experiment that allows evil spreading more easily and more quickly while Military Dictatorship combines the enlightened rule of the old monarchies with the modern sensibilities of the new age, where the military can guide and protect the people to be stronger and safer without being forced to follow the old grudges of century old families and nepotistic practices.

Early Life



Loreto was born to a small middle-class family in Amalfi, Italy in 1899 before the turn of the century. His father was an army officer while his mother was comitted herself to being a housewife in order to look after Loreto and his siblings, his older brother and sister Guido and Eva. Their life together would be a rather peaceful one with Loreto and his siblings getting along while they all enjoyed the visits they got from their father. Their mother did everything she could to ensure they all lived comfortably and happily. Even as a child Loreto idealised his father and wished to be just like him, to be an officer in the Italian army and make his father proud of him.

During his childhood Loreto was well known for being an authoritative figure, often able to get other children to follow his lead in terms of discipline, something that would gain him a lot of favour with his teachers. He would excel in his studies, taking a great interest in Italian military history even from a young age which would only serve to further embolden his desire to join the Italian army so that he could serve like his father and protect Italy.

By the age of 16 Loreto would begin to prepare for getting into the Military Academy of Modena however his family life would change when Italy entered the Great War in 1915 and his father was sent into what would become the Twelve Battles of the Isonzo. Both Loreto and his family continued to worry for the safety of his father, his mother praying almost every day in the hopes that he would come home safe until after 4th of November they would recieve word that Loreto's father was amongst the 39,000 dead in the 9th Battle of the Isonzo. Loreto's mother, brother and sister were racked with grief at the news while Loreto himself chose to grieve silently, taking it upon himself to comfort his family in this difficult time. His silence would also give way to a growing hatred for those who lead Italy, the King foremost amongst his thoughts as he began to blame the 'Soldier King' for leading Italy into what he began to see as a pointless and meaningless war.

It wouldn't be until 1917 that Loreto would finally apply for and be accepted by the Military Academy of Modena where he began to train as an officer. Despite Italy being involved in the Great War at the time Loreto would not see combat as he was kept there to learn and train as an officer, the war concluding a year later while he was still at the academy. While there Loreto's instructors would not his aptitude for both tactics and strategy and a strong desire to keep anyone under his command safe rather than risking their well-being unless absolutely necessary. This attitude would follow him into active service where he would be able to gain not only the respect but the loyalty of his men, something that would see him quickly rise through the ranks of the Italian army.

Rise to Power



By the time the Second World War came around Loreto had managed to achieve the rank of General after serving in the 2nd Italo-Ethiopian War for his exceptional service. While he disagreed with the leadership of Mussolini he wasn't willing to make it known to his peers for fear of being branded a traitor and executed, instead he kept quiet and ensured that those under his command stayed loyal to him.

Once Italy entered in the Second World War in full Loreto was sent to Libya to fight in the North African campaign alongside the Germans own General, Erwin Rommel. The two would work closely together and, while the two still struggled against the combined forces of Free France and the British Empire, they still managed to ensure that the Italian territory of Libya did not fall into the hands of the Allied forces.

As the war continued and it became clearer that the Axis could not hold back the Allies or Comintern both Loreto Aita and Erwin Rommel began to discuss possible plans to avoid being killed, both agreeing that the Allies would likely put them on trial for serving under their respective leaders, Comintern would have them shot and that if any plan they had failed they would be executed for treason. After much discussion and debate the two would eventually agree that Erwin Rommel would take his forces and aid Loreto Aita and his own forces in leading a coup against Mussolini and the Italian Social Republic. The two also agreed that should the coup be successful then Erwin Rommel would become the military governor of Libya under Loreto who would rule from Italy.

By 1943 Loreto had managed to spread dissent within the ranks of the Italian military, gaining majority support within what was left of the Italian navy while the Italian army was almost entirely under his sway due to mass discontent from Mussolini's incompetent military strategy. Loreto's coup sprung just as the Italian Civil began, Mussolini being killed in Rome by Loreto and his forces during a parade. By this point the Italian military revolts in full, Loreto entrusting the North African campaign to Erwin Rommel while he takes his own forces back into Italy. In the Italian north the Italian Social Republic remained with the remains of its government being lead by the former Minister of Defence, Rodolfo Graziani, however their lack of manpower lead to mass conscription and over-reliance on German assistance thus leading the Italian Social Republic being made into a De Facto Puppet state.

Establishing Italy



In the Italian south the navy under Loreto's command was occupied with keeping away Allied forces and supplies as well as bombarding Co-Belligerent forces. Even with the military under his command and even having a number advantage, Loreto recognised that the other Italian generals had neglected their armies discipline as was evident with their mounting losses. As a result Loreto decided to make some choice deals with the Italian mob, promising them 'unofficial' operational freedom in exchange for assisting in the Italian Civil War on the side of the Junta. The mob families of Italy agreed to aid the Junta and would begin engaging the Co-Belligerent army as well as smuggling in supplies for the Italian army.

With the Italian Social Republic in the north rapidly collapsing and Hitlers Reich giving up on them, it was a surprisingly quick and easy affair for the Italian Junta to crush the fascist regime. Those who were members of Mussolini's government were quickly rounded up and, on Loreto's orders, shot without trial before being buried in unmarked graves. The Northern Front was then tasked with ensuring that neither the Allies nor the Axis could move in through the Alps by any means necessary. These orders would lead to some rather underhanded tactics, including artificial landslides, false surrenders, booby trapping enemy corpses and even deploying mines on civilian roads.

These tactics would eventually lead to the Northern campaign pushing back allied forces to the French border, freeing up more manpower to push Eastward into the German Puppet-State of Croatia. The main reason for this was to strike at the Axis and its allies quickly in order to deny them resources, manpower and to ensure that they become overburdened with emergency situations to prevent co-ordinated retaliation.

With Italy managing to succeed in the Northern Front, retaking Albania and even securing the Adriatic Loreto was able to focus his troops back down in Southern Italy. With the Italian mobs on his side, serving to unbalance and destabilize the Co-Belligerent army, Loreto was able to offset the Italian armies relative incompetence against his weakened foes, eventually managing to crush the rebels and drive out their supporters.

With Italy firmly under his control Loreto would demand a meeting with the Allied forces in order to take Italy out of the War as it currently stood. While the talks would give Loreto what he wanted he would agree to releasing Ethiopia with Eritrea and Somalia added on to it, even stating that he would sign an agreement that Italy would come to the defense of Ethiopia in the event of war. One unfortunate event during the discussions, however, would be the French delegation refusing to agree with their allied compatriots to allow Italy to exit the war with its current holdings, eventually leading to the French stating that they "...will continue to fight until Italy and its people are liberated."

This would lead into the Franco-Italian Mediterranean War however Italy was officially no longer involved in the Second World War.

Franco-Italian Mediterranean War


[W.I.P.]

[TL;DR - France attacks Italy without the support of the Allies to try and overthrow Loreto, they ultimately lose and Loreto takes Corsica and Tunis under the justification of 'compensation and punity.'

Also, once the war concluded, he invited the Mobsters to a private meeting to celebrate the victory however this was a lie and he used this opportunity to capture them and interrogate them so that the mobs could be dismantled.]

Economic Policy
Under Loreto's regime the Italian economy follows the State Interventionist model where the overall economy is a mixed-market with the Italian government having the authority to intervene in the interests of the people and the state in order to promote economic growth, increase employment and raise wages as well as affecting market prices and addressing market failures. While it is deemed desierable to promote income equality with this method, the state under Loreto primarily uses State Interventionism in order to promote social order and to protect the wealth of Italy and her people.

Additionally, Private Banks are still permitted to exist within Italy while Building Societies are typically favoured more.

Education Policy
Alongside the general teachings of basic skills and optional career skills the Italian education system promotes the idea of every citizen of Italy being a soldier, often including weekly Oaths of Allegiance to Italy. The education system also heavily encourages interest in the military by including the military applications of skills that are used in everyday life such as engineering, management skills and even diplomatic skills in order to calm internal and external conflict.

Social Policy
While everyone is encouraged to see themselves as a soldier of Italy there is also the ideal that Italy, as a nation, is a union of peoples that may all proudly call themselves Italian so long as they swear their loyalty to the Italian flag. While this has caused a slight separation in identity it has also managed to slowly join them all together by promoting the idea that they all exist under the label of 'Italian' leading to some calling themselves a 'Libyan-Italian', an 'Albanian-Italian' or as a 'Lombardi-Italian'.

Along with this, Loreto has made it illegal for any Italian to be Socialist or Fascist with those who profess to follow such ideologies being declared Enemies of the State who are to be executed. This even goes as far as encouraging the Italian public to kill these people themselves which has lead to a handful of cases of false accusations which are then punished severely.

International Policy
Despite the ideals of Democracy, Fascism and Socialism being seen as distinctly 'Non-Italian' ideals Italy still interacts with the international world but with a clear interest in safe-guarding Italian interests and combating the spread of Socialist and Fascist ideals. Italy remains on somewhat-neutral terms with democratic powers in the West and openly trades with them but often feuds with Nationalist Spain and Communist Yugoslavia as well as co-operating with NATO in regards to combatting the Eastern Bloc, despite not being a member.
