...And the hells will ascend onto the lands of the living...- End-Time prophecies
It was the 5th aniversary of the Kheranic fundamentalists victory and the declaration of Samubai Imikheras as the Republics Supreme Leader. Now he held his aniversal speech in front of the masses speaking of their reighteousness under God but also of the holy lands of Kherans pilgrimage which were still held by Madagascari infedels.
Just a few hours ago he had send out instructions to his political and military commanders.
A small force was directed to expand northwards and gain access to new recources to supply the bulk of the army that was preparing to liberate the holy lands.
General Ezekiel Mekmende was carried by the fastest hovertruck to the Caliphate to coordinate with the Ethiopian generals. He also carried a personal message from the Supreme Leader to his highness the Caliph.
Then the Supreme leader instructed his President to initiate diplomatic relations with all the great asian and north african nations. One ship was sent to the Empire of the Resplendent Sun with Dr. Sonja Imibwazi acting as envoy. Similar diplomatic ships were sent to Khmer, Bod, Majapit, Kushan, Satavahana, the Mongol Khanate, the Emirates and the Roman Empire. The purpose was to exchange scientific knowledge and technology and to establish trade relations. (OOC - While these envoys are not exactly a secret please only act as if you know if you have enough espionage and were spying on the relevant nations)
The Supreme Leader also lifted the ban on research regarding Acherium but strictly only to learn how to counteract it or how to make it safe.
Lastly he gave his official blessing to the religious mission South America. Even in times of war peaceful endeavors and generosity should not be forgotten. (OOC - The missionary ship will land between realworld Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo, establish a mission on the coast there and spread out from there to preach Kheranism, feed the poor, heal the sick, establish schools and do all the other stuff that missions normally do in third world countries)
