Pre-colonial history

Archaeological excavations of an ancient tomb dating back to the Tengrol Empire.

Little is known about the prehistoric Ionio. Some archaeological finds have shown human presence about 40,000 years BCE. It is assumed that these humans were hunter-gatherers and lived in small communities.

Archaeological experts have found remains of the Tengrol Empire. Although the Tengrol Empire collapsed about 200 CE as the people of this empire were nomads, but it is assumed that there are perhaps more causes that led to the collapse of this empire. The presence of the Tengrol people continues today in Ionio where a small minority of the descendants of the Tengrol people live.

Colonial period

The city of Sibari in 1630.

In 700 Aroman colonists (specifically, Arakhóran) arrived from the Aurelian Empire which in the present day corresponds to Kirvina. They founded the coastal trading cities of Sibarha (Σιβαρά), Tarassa (Ταραccα), and Miróia (Μιρόια). They maintained a presence as part of the Aurelian Empire's eastern provinces. With the presence of the Aroman settlers were imported knowledge of mathematics, metalworking, architecture, science along with the breeding of cattle, pigs, horses and different plants for agriculture.

By 1200s CE, their influence began to recede, and they were conquered by local tribes. These tribes founded the Kingdom of Ionio, a ‘melting pot’ state on their former location. With the formation of this kingdom begins a slow process of integration between the tribal cultures and the culture of the colonies of the Aurelian Empire. The period of maximum expansion of the kingdom dates back to about 1323 - 1443 where this kingdom had an intense economic and social activity.

The duration of this reign lasted until 1500, when Ionio went through a period of rapid economic decline. Because of its mostly isolationist policy, this led to a collapse of civilization. The remaining city-states were weak and constantly at war with each other. These continuous struggles have provoked a weakening of the various city states becoming prey for future colonizers.

In 1518 the first settlers from Gotneska arrived and founded the city of Torre dell' Orso and began to establish a colonial empire north of Ionio. In the city lies the tomb of the explorer James Clarke who died after discovering Ionio. During colonization, goutian culture such as rugby was imported, which would later evolve into Calcio a Griglia.

In 1520 came the explorer mantellan Marco Caboto who landed on the coasts of Ionian but which were uninhabited. When he returned to his homeland I indicated the presence of uninhabited lands that can be colonized. Then an expedition for the colonization of these new lands started and on July 4, 1520 the first settlers arrived and the mantellan colonization of Ionio begins.

The exploration began and the settlers met the indigenous peoples and the various city states that were at war with each other. Mantellan's army took advantage of this situation to gain as much ground as possible. The war with the local population took place until 1550 but in 1540 the expansionist aims of mantle were concentrated in the north of the Ionian and declared war on the colonial empire of Gotneska which lasted until 1550 with the peace treaty that sanctioned the victory of Mantella but had to respect the colonies of Gotneska that were present in the North Ionio.

During this period the colonizers imposed the culture and religion of Mantellan. This process encountered many obstacles but during the seventeenth century the Cristinese language became the language that everyone spoke and the official religion was Christian Apostolic. The times of the various earlier cultures were converted into basilicas and churches. This process was sped up as the mantellan government sent experts in culture, architecture, scientists to Ionium to educate people about the new culture. The cities underwent a process of restructuring by adding Renaissance and Baroque elements. Although this process characterized the main culture of Ionian, the management of the colony by Mantellan and the various policies adopted by the various governors was increasing the discontent of the population.

In 1688 the Four Year's War broke out between Lysian Louvier and Ionian Mantella. War had broken out for the conquest of territories and for the exploitation of resources. The war ended in November 1682 with the signing of The Peace of Levent restoring the borders before the conflict.

During the eighteenth century the ideas of the Enlightenment arrived in Ionio and began to spread quickly among the high local population. The philosophy of the Enlightenment is considered the catalyst of the Ionian War of Independence as the population was unhappy with the new taxes that the governor Antonio De Santis had applied.


Proclamation of the Federal Republic of Ionio.

Throughout the eighteenth century there was a popular discontent that involved all the beginnings of the population. The ideas of the Enlightenment had introduced new liberal and democratic concepts. With the outbreak of the Louvian Revolutionary War the Ionian populations saw an opportunity to declare independence and on July 10, 1760 Ionian Declaration of Independence was signed, starting war with the Mantellan forces.

Mantellan's forces tried to control the situation but the revolutionaries had more local experience than Mantellan's army. The revolutionaries were aided by the Wampanoag Empire and Exarchate of Kirvina which led to a quick resolution of the conflict. In December 10 of 1764 there was the battle of Taranto which determined the defeat of the Mantellan army and the liberation of Ionian from the colonial period.

December 13, 1764 is signed the Treaty of Rossano which sanctioned the end of the dominion of Mantellan as well as compensation for damages. In this period a provisional government was established which had the task of writing the new constitution and the formation of the new government.

The formation of the constitution turned out to be complicated as the monarchists wanted to restore the monarchy of the Ionian kingdom while the republicans wanted a republic. After a long debate, a compromise was reached that is indicated in Article 4 allowing the states to adopt their form of government and forming the Kingdom of Sila while the other states adopted republican forms.

On March 4, the birth of the Federal Republic of Ionio is proclaimed and March 10 the first elections are called in which the first Mario Bertinotti is elected as the first president, who was the general who led the revolutionaries to victory. Also in this period the San Foca Federal District was founded and the foundation of the city of San Foca then followed by the foundation of the coastal city of Torre Canne.

Ionio is a federal republic of 6 states and federal district. It is a federal republic and a representative democracy "in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law." In the Ionian federalist system, citizens are subjected to three levels of government: federal, state, and local. The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by the Ionian Constitution, which serves as the country's supreme legal document. The Constitution establishes the structure and responsibilities of the federal government and its relationship with the individual states. The Constitution has been amended 28 times; the first ten amendments (Bill of Rights) and the Fourteenth Amendment form the central basis of Ioninan' individual rights. All laws and governmental procedures are subject to judicial review, and any law can be voided if the courts determine that it violates the Constitution. Constitutional Court of Ionio is the only top-level juridical body that has power to revise laws that are passed by states and the federal government. It is also responsible for settling conflicts of attribution between the powers of the federal government and the states and between the states themselves as well as judging the accusations brought against the president and verifying the admissibility of referendums.

The federal government comprises three branches, all physically headquartered in San Foca:

  • Legislative The bicameral Congress, made up of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, makes federal law, declares war, approves treaties, has the power of the purse, and has the power of impeachment, by which it can remove sitting members of the federal government.
  • Executive The president is the commander-in-chief of the military, can veto legislative bills before they become law (subject to congressional override), and appoints the members of the Cabinet (subject to Senate approval) and other officers, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies.
  • Judicial The Supreme Court of Cassation is the highest court in Ionio for both criminal and civil appeal cases. Where a law now has an unclear interpretation, judges may request verification by the Constitutional Court of Ionio for appropriate verification of laws.

The lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, has 300 voting members, each representing a congressional district for a five-year term. House seats are apportioned among the states by population. Each state then draws single-member districts to conform with the census apportionment.

The upper house, the Senate, has 100 members with each state having two senators, elected at large to five-year terms. The Senate is unique among upper houses in being the most prestigious and powerful portion of the country's bicameral system; political scientists have frequently labeled it the "most powerful upper house" of any government.

Queen Rose II. Current Queen of the Kingdom of Sila

The president serves a five-year term and may be elected to the office no more than twice. The president is elected by direct vote taking into account the percentage of the votes that political parties and coalitions take. Constitutional Court of Ionio consists of fifteen judges, whose election is up to different bodies: five are chosen by Parliament, five by the President of the Republic and five by three colleges of which the most important magistrates are part. Their term of office is 6 years.

Article 4 of the Ionian Constitution describes the formation of states and their forms of government that must be democratic and respect the current 28 amendments. Article 4 is remembered as the law of compromise between monarchists and republicans after the war of independence and to avoid a civil war that would last for many years. With this article was formed the state Kingdom of Sila which represents the heir to the ancient Kingdom of Ionium. Although members of the House of Cosenza have limited powers only within the Kingdom of Sila as the government is a constitutional monarchy, in the eyes of the federal government they are regarded as ordinary people although they are addressed in the formal style.

Law and criminal justice

The Ionian judicial system is based on Aroman law modified by the Napoleonic code(?) and later statutes. The Supreme Court of Cassation is the highest court in Ionio for both criminal and civil appeal cases. The Constitutional Court of Ionio (Corte Costituzionale) rules on the conformity of laws with the constitution and is a post XXXX innovation. Since their appearance in the beginning of the 20th century, Ionian organised crime and criminal organisations have infiltrated the social and economic life of many regions which would later expand into some foreign countries including XXXX.

Law enforcement

Law enforcement in Ionio is provided by multiple police forces, five of which are national agencies. The Polizia di Stato (State Police) is the civil national police of Ionio. The Carabinieri is the common name for the Arma dei Carabinieri, a Gendarmerie-like military corps with police duties. They also serve as the military police for the Ionian armed forces. The Carabinieri are considered as federal police and since XXXX also includes the Polizia Autostradale that is responsible for controlling and intervening in the highway network of Ionio.

The Guardia di Finanza, (Anglish: Financial Guard) is a corps under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance, with a role as police force. The Corps is in charge of financial, economic, judiciary and public safety. The Polizia Penitenziaria (Prison Guards, literally Penitentiary Police) operate the Ionian prison system and handle the transportation of inmates.

The city of Sibari was built trying to exploit the delta of the River Po.

Ionio had a development with different styles of architecture. The first cities founded by settlers were based on Renaissance architecture but over time there have been different styles of construction.

During the colonial period, castles and palaces were built. Many Mantellan architects such as Luigi Cannavaro came to Ionio to teach their styles to local architects. These cultural exchanges made it possible to create original styles in Ionio where pre-colonial elements were mixed with the elements of the various Europan architectural styles.

During the XXX the first skyscrapers were built and after the XXX Art Deco spread. At the same time, Futurism Architecture which ended at the end of XXX. It resumed with other types of style such as Googie architecture, New Formalism, Mid-century modern architecture, High-tech architecture and Neo-futurism.

Visual Art and Literature

The Power of Oil by Gianmarco Lorenzini an exponent of Futurism.

Visual art and pre-colonial literature was saved and is still available today. With the arrival of the Mantellan settlers, there was a radical change. Mantellan artists came to Ionio to teach local artists and there was a mixing with indigenous culture with Europan culture, creating numerous works of art. During the period of the war of independence, the visual art and literature were used as propaganda messages and to inspire nationalist poems.

When Ionio was hit by the industrial revolution, the style of Verismo where many novels were made. Also, the genre of Adventure. When the Futurism movement exploded, many writers and painters became interested in this movement. The Futurist movement together with the Art Deco movement heavily influenced the Ionian culture that still persists today, although only a few key concepts are used and readapted to the modern context. In modern times there is no one genre but more subgenres that it is difficult to understand a dominant genre.

Newspapers and Television

Newspapers were the primary source of news in Ionio. During the second half of the nineteenth century many newspapers were born but with the introduction of radio, television and the internet the number of newspapers decreased. Today the most important newspapers are Libero Quotidiano and the Corriere di San Foca. Then there are several newspapers spread throughout the national territory and there are small newspapers that are spread only within the states.

With the development of the radio began the rapid diffusion of radio stations that had a local diffusion. But already in this began to form the first degrees of society in the field of telecommunications, but the real explosion occurs around 1950 with the rapid spread of television.

With the rapid spread of television brought a period called occupation of the ether, a phenomenon that led to the birth of large media corporations. The first television and radio company was Ionio Broadcasting Corporation, followed by Mediaset Communication , Tropea Broadcasting System and finally Wolf Broadcasting Company which are considered the largest television broadcasters in Ionio. Transmission companies were created at the local level but occupied frequencies in a savage way causing regulation by the state. In 1974 Ionio Broadcasting Corporation was taken over by Fininvest and consequently passed into the management of the young John Colucci. After a period of adjustment with the laws on the regulation of the sector began the golden age of Ionian television that lasted throughout the 80s.

During the 90s there was the period of television trash and rivalry between Ionian Broadcasting Corporation and Mediaset Communication and the revival Wolf Broadcasting Company. With the advent of the Internet, companies had to adapt to new needs and in 20XX the transition to digital television broadcasting was completed. With the purchase by the Colucci family of the telecommunications company Telecom the largest telecommunications conglomerate was created with the merger between Ionio Broadcasting Corporation and Telecom forming the new company IonioCast causing another war between the major companies and triggering a series of interventions to regulate the internet service and the rapid spread of streaming services.


Antonio Moroder pioneer of Ionio Disco and electronic dance music, is known as the "Father of Disco"

From folk music to Classical music, music is an intrinsic part of Ionian culture. Thanks to the Mantellan settlers, Europan musical instruments were imported, and local musical artists managed to create music by combining local elements with Europan elements. Since in Mantella is the birthplace of Mantellan Opera has also spread in Ionio with the formation of internationally renowned musicians.

The Ionian music scene changed rapidly with the introduction of new musical styles such as jazz, progressive rock and other musical genres of new conception.

Ionio contributed to the development of disco and electronic music, with Ionio disco, known for its futuristic sound and prominent use of synthesisers and drum machines, being one of the earliest electronic dance genres. By the latter half of the 1990s, a subgenre of Ionio Dance emerged. Taking influences from Ionio disco and Ionio House, Ionio dance generally included synthesiser riffs, a melodic sound, and the usage of vocoders. Since 2010 the Synthwave genre is spreading which is a musical genre based mainly on music associated with the soundtracks of action, science fiction and horror films of the 80s. Other influences are drawn from the art and video games of the decade. Synthwave musicians often espouse nostalgia for the culture of the 80s and attempt to capture the atmosphere of the era and celebrate it.

Today, Ionian pop music is represented annually with the Sibari Music Festival and EurthVision Song Competition. Many singers like Lucia Ramos, Ettore Capone are world-famous singers.


With the spread of cinema in the world also in Ionio important films were made that have made the history of cinema. At the beginning the films were made with an experimental scenography but after the XXXX there was the real diffusion of cinema thanks to world-famous directors such as Federico Rimbaldi and Massimo Leone, who made various masterpieces of cinema neorealism.

During the 60s the genre Spaghetti Western both dramatic and comic while producing genre films Poliziotteschi where police and crime violence were exalted. The comedy spread but reached its peak during the 80s where the genre Sexy comedy all'ionica dominated.

Between the 80s and 90s the genre spreads was Slasher while in recent times there is no dominant genre, but many films of different genres are produced.

In addition to the important film production companies, independent production companies are founded in recent years that are able to generate films of excellent quality. The most influential studios of Ionio is that of Rossano, while the Tropea Film Studio is famous for action scenes and genres such as Crime drama and Gangster film.
