The Fall

Lazio was one of the most prosperous regions of Italy, and the most populous. On the 28 of October 1962 the bombs fell on Italy, battering Rome. Rome is now a radioactive slag heap, and until the 1965 Lazio was in chaos. The winter of 1963 caused some casualties in the regions. in that time only the Province of Latina was under control of the Roman Republic, who have started at annexed the surrender territory from the 1965 until the 1967, when all Lazio was under control. 

Pino Rauti with his charisma and ideology to the Fascism have created a provisional assembly formed by the member of the MSI in Southern Lazio, but also with mayors, the prefect and the questore of Latina, military officials and religious man, after a initial reunion on how called and what form of government give at the new state it was decide to give full power at Rauti and proclaim him Duce of the Republic, with semi-unlimited power, after some mouths the republic was proclaimed in the day of the 28 October of the 1965, one of the first law of Rauti was that of the establishment of the M.V.S.N, a Militia formed by fascist volunteers and recruits, this Militia was also used in violence and actions again the Communist and in general of who was again the republic, the martial law was only disestablished in the 1970, when all the Lazio was under control of the Republic.

After the 1970 and annexation of all Lazio the trade with Tuscany and with other states like with the Sardinia started, and also border conflict with the Neapolitan Republic started, this caused by violence and insult between Border guards, but at the end the two states don't arrive at a war, why for Naples Lazio wasn't rich and good for be occupied, so both state only increase the military presence at their borders.

In the 70s patrol of the Army started to enter in the Umbria, the region wasn't hit and live in a normal state, but Umbria after the nuclear war was divided info various communes, like during the medioeve, one of the post powerful communes was Terni, who hold the ex-province of terni, other communes was Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio. After an allied with Terni the Roman Republic and Terni have launched a military offensive over the other communes, after several military campaigns again the communes one by one have fall, the least commune at fall was that of Gubbio in the 1974, a mouth after the enter in Umbria, with most of the Army dislocated in Umbria they occupy the strategic locations and started to claimed the regions as part of the Republic, but this was under shadow and unofficial, until the 24th december of the 1974, when in a session of the Comunal council for proclaim the Republic of Umbria units of the M.V.S.N. surrender the mayor's palace and arrested all the members of the Council, with this act Umbria become part of the Republic.

In the 80s with the breaking of the Italian - Romagna relations and his consequential war again the Romagna for defeated that, the Italian Republic annex the Romagna and the Duce and his government see this things as a liberation from the Communists. 

After the war again the Neapolitan Republic and with the invasion of their territory by Sicily and Italian Republic things get worst for the Roman Republic, with now the Italian Republic border with him more and more Italians would wanna become part of Italy, from some simple pacific manifestation it have started a rebellion again the Authoritarian state, after the take power of the revolutionaries in Umbria they declare independence from the Roman Republic and declare themselves as a part of Italy, so with this surprising request the Italian Army enter in Umbria and annex there, but the Duce was angry for this invasion and so started to marching info the Umbrian territory and declare war at the Italian Republic, but in the time of two weeks the modern Italian Army arrive at Gaeta, provisional capital after the fall of Perugia when there the Duce declare fall the Roman Republic and escape with an airplane in Brazil, many cities in the Lazio was in a state of joy, ans the Roman Republic officially ceased to exist in the 13nd July of the 1989.
