Why is Vacation City its own country and not a part of Italy? Is it like Disneyworld?

Vatican City was established as an independent city state by a treaty between the church and Italy (Mussolini) in 1929. It is not an amusement park in any sense.

I'm guessing this is a joke, and you mean Vatican City. The reasons for its independence from Italy go way back in history, and involve the desire of the Pope to manage the home of the Roman Catholic church without direct involvement from the ever-changing Italian government. This became important during World War II, when Italy was first controlled by the Mussolini Fascists, and then by the German Nazis. Vatican City was officially "neutral", while in fact they did some good work in sheltering escaped prisoners and others, such as Jews, trying to avoid concentration camps.
