The description of Italy in the nation selection screen currently reads: "The
Italian nation was unified in 1870 AD after decades of campaigning by
indigenous nationalists. It was a monarchy under the House of Savoy until
1922, then a fascist state until 1945 after which democracy was restored by
the World War II victors."

In 1943, Mussolini was dismissed, the Fascist Party was dissolved, and war was
declared on Germany. The Nazis then busted Mussolini out of jail and forced
him to establish the Italian Social Republic in the north, but this puppet
state had no continuity with the Kingdom of Italy and was never considered the
legitimate government of the country. A more accurate description would be
along the lines of:

"The Italian nation was unified as a constitutional monarchy under the House
of Savoy in 1870 AD after decades of campaigning by indigenous nationalists,
and was a fascist state from 1922 to 1943. In 1946, voters adopted a
republican constitution and exiled the Savoy kings."
