Rivalry with CCBBEdit

After the war, Sicily made it's declaration of independence and decided to split off from the European Union , forming it's own nation, the Sicilian Empire. The plan was to conquer various places aroud the world. WestSideKnight , the President of the EU dissolved the EU and formed a new nation, World Powers. Sicily's first expansion was to South Italy.
The Expansion to South ItalyEdit
The UT was eager about Sicily, and was willing to fund them to expand. Sicily is not doing so well financially, so the UT was happy to give them the funds needed to expand. Neo wanted to expand to South Italy, so some land was flattened so they could do just that. A bridge was funded and built by the UT from Sicily to South Italy, and new roads were constructed. Money was also given to construct a large apartment building to house all of the members of Sicily. Currently, the apartment building is under construction.
One real day after camoaspie was crowned the new Mayor of CCBB, President of North America , and Leader of the UT, NeoLeo123 resigned from his position as mayor/president, and handed it over to Aqq1e. It is currently unknown what his plans are for the empire.
