Yeah I think that the Germany and Italy that we know today didn't exist until around the mid 1800's. Actually I guess Germany had more land then too and until after World War I.
Once capitalists know we can release the Kraken, they'll back down and obey our demands for sure.

Yeah, it did, but at that point it had degenerated so much that it was only a very loose, and very useless confederation of various states. Those states even waged war with each other, so the Empire really existed only on paper.
