The Italiote League is a formable nation in southern Europe, representing a unification of the Italiote cities of mainland Magna Graecia and a restoration and federalization of the league led by Tarentum that once allied together many of the Greek cities of the region. It can be formed by countries of Italiote culture with their capital in the regions of Magna Graecia and Italia such as Tarentum, Croton, Rhegium, or Ancona, and requires the conquest or subjugation of enough of the many Italiote cities along the Italian coast to be recognized as the leader and hegemon of all Italiotes. In addition to fighting the other Italiote city states, creating the league may also involve coming into conflict with some of the Italic tribes, particularly Lucania and Bruttia, as well as the nearby powers of Rome and Syracusae who that have expanded their power into the region.
Unlike most formable nations, the Italiote League can only be formed by mission task, not decision, and is not a formal part of the formable nation tier system, and so for the most part can form and be formed by any other formable nation, so long as the country meets all of the other requirements. In particular, the Italiote League is typically formed as a stepping stone towards the unification of Magna Graecia.
