Chapter 14: Facing the Future


The Jaguar Queen agrees to your demands and announces she will remove the centers from any nations that wish them removed. Several of our allies have followed our lead, but many nations, especially those in the developing world, appear happy to retain them. Though relations with Xanadu certainly haven’t been improved, we have successfully removed the centers from our territory. Opinion polls suggest the public was on balance split about your decision, and approval rating haven't noticeably shifted after the centers were closed.

Several months pass, and after several fruitless attempts to build a relationship between Xanadu and the United States your advisors finally manage to convince the brand new Xanadu diplomat core into a meeting between your two heads of state. A month later, you fly to the Xanadu capital to meet with the Jaguar Queen Ororo N’dara. The palace is lavish and most of the trip is spent at photo-ops with the press at tousr the city’s many ancient monuments and high-tech laboratories. However, you do manage to get a private meeting with her before the three day tour ends. This meeting is a rare opportunity to make concrete developments, what will you discuss with her? Your advisors have given you several suggested routes.

What do you do now?

Ask to open an American embassy in XanaduAn American embassy in Xanadu (and vice-versa) would work wonders towards improving our relations.
Ask the Xanadu to send representatives to the UNThough perhaps positive relations between our two states may be difficult to achieve, as a modern state Xanadu should at the very least send a delegation to the UN to represent its interests.
Warn them of overstepping our sovereigntyThough Xanadu may be new to the international scene, the Jaguar Queen must be reminded that there are rules in the modern world that must be followed. Denounce her actions and warn them of future consequences should our sovereignty be attacked again.
