Empire of Andrew Regional Message Board
Travelling from the Fazenda Montenegro into Santa Catalina, Jerick Pallas has approached UCP Representative Henry Whaite in his office there to ask a favor. He apologizes for arriving with no notice, but could not risk sending a message and having it be intercepted by Orsonian agents; Pallas knows that Whaite's office is likely protected from espionage by Torchwood. Additionally, the Paramount Committee and the Unified Front leadership would almost certainly oppose his intentions for the meeting and move to block it entirely, so Pallas is having to do this in secrecy. Pallas is asking Whaite for a possible audience with Emperor Mercer to discuss stationing elements of the Blue Army and UF paramilitaries in Tanzania, Namibia, Burundi, and Rwanda. A second revolution is being planned against Orson, and the revolutionaries would need areas where they could mobilize, rearm and resupply without the threat of Imperial interference. Seeing as relations between the Cybusian and Orsonian governments are bitter, it would be in the interests of the Cybusians to support a regime change. Finally, Pallas wants to garner the support of Evolved and Cybusian-Orsonians to launch a filibuster of their own against the Orsonian government. Pallas considers Whaite a friend and ally of the movement, and thus trusts him with this information.
Indeed, Cabo Verde is a core Territory of Mali in my new canon. Having been conquered in the Malian-Iberian War of 1588-1603(which would be before the Mali Empire's coastal control started to dwindle in the EoA timeline) and is a critical component in the conditions required to enable the Mali Confederation to form in 1800 from it's economic, political, military, and diplomatic value to the Malians.
In WW1 it would be an important site of Naval battles as the Archipelago being in the hands of the Imperial Mali Confederation allowed Central powers subs to have higher efficiency in spotting Wagain shipping during the war when searching for targets due to the constricting effect on the shipping lanes from the state of war between the Central Powers and the Entente. These naval engagements are likely to be the only battles between Malian and Wagain forces in the war, and post-war as part of the Malians' treaty with the Entente Cabo Verde will be put under Entente Occupation with the control of the Occupation belonging to Wagondia.
Throughout the Interwar period the West African government would seek to align with the Allies and secure the ending of the Occupation.
(This is a brief rundown, I'll post a more in depth examination of the history of the area and it's importance to the history of the country)
Ambassador Whaite is pleased to hear of this. He has always been a supporter of the Federalists, and more generally for reform in Orson but recognizes that sometimes violence is necessary. He has agreed to the idea, but he has no authority over any kind of internal affairs. He will request an audience with the Emperor, recognizing that time is of the essence. Hes also very aware that this could help improve relations between the Empire and the Orsonians, if the revolution is successful. He will be in touch with further developments.
A few days later (it would take some time for the issue to be debated, approval granted, etc);
Henry has contacted Pallas and informed him that the Emperor has agreed to an audience, if Whaite will accompany him. The two will be meeting the Emperor himself, with no one else present aside from his personal guards. A shuttle can be dispatched to collect the two on any date which Pallas can find to get away from his fellow revolutionaries without arousing suspicion.

(Optional) Please give a short one-paragraph statement, outlining your nation's case for hosting the Olympics, and how the games will affect your city's long-term vision for the future:
I've been meaning to get this done, but have been busy going out with family lately. I'll be skipping over the optional statement at the end, but in short: Hosting the Summer Olympics would help Kaohsiung in their efforts to gain more tourists in the future (as evident by their redevelopment starting around 2020), with the city government hoping to use the games as a means of showing foreign nationals how beautiful and amazing the city is (outside of the industrial parts of it)...or something along those lines anyway.
Upon hearing the news, Pallas would inform Whaite that he wanted to leave immediately, already having spread a false story of him staying in Santa Catalina for some time to have a conference with the Contra-Turneristas; Pallas had anticipated that the Emperor would approve of the meeting, and his planning paid off. He would take a pre-prepared suitcase with some necessities and leave the Fazenda, heading to wherever the shuttle would pick the two up.
Aboard the Tardan, Captain Angar and his subordinates would be stunned to hear the voice of Prime Minister Sangare over the radio. Apparently, the civilian government was so incompetent that the Malian PM was forced to hail a destroyer in a desperate attempt to establish some line of communication. As it became clear that the carrier patrol came to a stop, Tardan ordered the crew to stand down and replied to the Malians.
"This is Captain Angar of the destroyer Tardan. We have received your message and are working to establish a dialogue with Imperial High Command at this point."
At this point, the Office of Military Intelligence was listening in on the conversation, and it had worked its way up the chain of command. In Tara, a secretary frantically pulled Prime Minister Andrianaivo out of her meeting and presented her with a sattelite phone, with a connection to Sangere finally established.
Out of curiosity, does it bother anyone whenever I catch up on posts and like a bunch of them? I don't want it to seem like I'm trying to spam everyone with notifications in doing so.
No, it doesnt bother me!
