Also: Italia Mafiosa.
Officially: Cosa Nostra.
English: Mafia-controlled Italy.
Seat of government: Sicilia.
Status: Not democratic.
Governing party: the Mafia.
Head of government: Birnardu Provinzanu, capu di tutti capi.
Assessment: Often overlooked as an independent power, and practicing well-documented brutality. Provinzanu is in custody. One of his partners, Antonino Giuffrè, is held by Italia and providing evidence. Provinzanu fended off further state action from Roma by curtailing the murders prevalent under his predecessor, Totò Riina. Sarvaturi Lo Piccolo and Antonino Rotolo, either of whom may have succeeded Provinzanu as capu on the outside, were arrested as well. Matteu Missina Dinaru is the most prominent leader at large.
