Lifting Strength: Class 5 via power-scaling off of America
Striking Strength: Small Country Class
Durability: At least Small Country level, possibly higher (He is an anthropomorphic manifestation of a country, but it does not seem necessary to actually destroy the land mass in order to kill him, simply to destroy the culture or population, or to change the borders, nature, and name of the nation. Also, should have similar durability to Russia, as he jumped from a plane from an unknown altitude and survived. Additionally, Feliciano has survived hits from Ludwig, Alfred, Arthur, Ivan, Poland, Switzerland and other heavy hitters)
Stamina: Superhuman (Possibly higher. Was stated and able to run 25 km a day nonstop when retreating in a desert climate from Britain, could be comparable to Australia who has easily went for a 10 km swim (6 miles) and has mentioned he has swam across the Dover Straight which is 34 km long (21 miles).
Range: Standard melee range normally. However, with the aid of technology and military capabilities, it can potentially be planetary.
Standard Equipment: Any Italian firearm or other weapon.
Weaknesses: He tends to give up very easily. At the sight of any danger, however he was noted to be able to take down Turkey at one point in his early history. Italy should not be underestimated. Cannot use nukes without American orders.
Note: Due to their powers (Type 8 Immortality, based on Country) to defeat/kill them permanently an opponent would need to have planetary range and the capability of killing billions of humans en mass (which is sufficient enough power to wipe out a respective country along with humanity) or Concept Manipulator to beat them.
