Other conferences will focus on energy policies including green energy, nuclear energy, hydro-electric energy, and the substantial coal and natural gas energy influx, with addresses towards the impacts of environmental change and increasing global temperatures as a result or effect thereof due to these processes. Dependent on the requests or interests of joining heads of state, discussions based on military defense programs and anything in relation to said subject may proceed.

OOC: Just fyi... I'm currently developing an internal storyline where Gardavasque is currently struggling reclaim their democracy from an autocrat who got himself elected due in part to an unsavory mix of clandestine foreign influence and voter ignorance/apathy. Hence the leadership does not reflect the character of the country.

Tofino International Airport

11:14 PM, Feb 21st, 2019


A large blue banner with the words 2019 Tofino Leaders Summit crossing the width of the display unfolds over the head walkway in the arrival's diplomatic area spanning the south end of the airport. President Bishop and SOS Avi Tremblan stand with honor guard for the first arrivals. An envoy from Cadiar exits into the foyer, with Mob Darogan Waywffon Morgan at the helm, followed by the Ambassador to Zamastan, Aoife Lir. Bishop extends a hand to greet the young leader.

Bishop: Mob Darogan, Ms. Ambassador, welcome to Zamastan. I hope you had an enjoyable flight?

Morgan: It was good, Madam President, thank you. We're excited for some productive conversation. I'm sorry to keep you up so late, you didn't have to wait for us.

Bishop: No problem at all, we're honored to have you here. We expect some great results from tomorrow's summit. We have your security envoy and an escort to get you to your embassy and respective residences for the night. Rest well, we can assure you Tofino will treat you well.

Morgan and his envoy enter their vehicles and leave the airport in single file row with police motorcycles flanking their perimeter, heading into the highway system and the skyline metropolis of the capital and city of over 12.8 million people...

Tofino International Airport, Zamastan
February 22nd, 2019 - Late Morning

The small private jet slowly taxied towards the red carpet and accompanying entourage. The plane came to rest, immediately opened its door, and dropped its stairs onto the red carpet with a flourish of dust. A young aid scampered down the stairs and greeted a stern faced Zamastanian officer with a curt bow. She then announced in a surprisingly booming voice for a young woman, "I now present to you Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Stadler, Secretary of Infrastructure and Energy and his wife." She stood aside and hurried off to a black sedan waiting at the end of the red carpet. Anticlimactically, Mr. Stadler and his wife, along with four aids, defended the steps in silence and stepped onto the red carpet covering the cold tarmac. He respectfully saluted the Zamastanian officer before proceeding to the sedan.

Alexander Stadler was not a terribly imposing man, he stood just a couple of inches over his wife (who was really rather short), and wore spectacles. The glass's rims matched Stadler's thin and whips grey hair perfectly, he liked it that way. He crawled into the back seat of the sedan with his wife and closed the door unceremoniously behind her.

His primary aid, Jeanie Hamilton, chimed in the passenger seat in front of him. The stern faced officer made his way to the passenger seat, put the car in gear, and drove off, waiting only a moment for the two SUVS behind him to close all their doors. He would prefer not to leave any of Stadler's other aids behind on the tarmac.

As the small motorcade rolled out of the airport, the officer lifted his radio and barked into it, "I have SIE and wife, along with aid #1." He received notification that the other two aids and 4 members of the security staff were present in the other two vehicles. This was what the officer expected, the 6 remaining officers would follow with the pilots after some inspections and paperwork was dealt with. "All present."

This news comforted Stadler, always a cautious, on the verge of paranoid, man. He prayed that all went off without a hitch. He knew, in the back of his mind, that the odds of any actual problem occurring were miniscule. With that said, Stadler was a man who preferred to be safe, rather than sorry. He smiled to himself as the car drove into view of the beautiful Tofino skyline.

Tofino International Airport, Zamastan
22nd February 2019, Morning

Upon landing in Zamastan, activity aboard the Kerlian aircraft increased quickly. One of the aides, who had never before flown, had to be coaxed from her seat by a colleague, after discovering her previously unknown fear of flying. Of the entire delegation, only Councillor Georgiou and Minister of Foreign Affairs Katrine Porter had ever before left Kerlile.

“What’s more intimidating, being in the same room as a Councillor, or the idea of that room being outside Kerlile?” one aide jokingly asked another. The pair quickly hushed as they made to follow said Councillor outside the aircraft.

Councillor Electra Georgiou paused at the top of the steps, surveying the scene below. Of all the Council of Kerlile, she was the one who travelled most frequently to foreign nations. A lover of the arts, she frequently travelled to museums and galleries across the IDU, much to the distaste of the traditionalist Councillors, and the bemusement of the rest.

Upon reaching the bottom, the Councillor was followed by Minister of Foreign Affairs Katrine Porter. A true believer in the Kerlian project, Porter instinctively distrusted men. She was smart and efficient, but ruthless. She demanded complete loyalty from those who worked for her, and in turn gave her complete loyalty to the Matriarchy. But iff anyone tried to fool her during the summit, it would be their mistake.

The final dignitary from Kerlile to depart the plane was Minister for International Trade, Ines Abbott. She had only recently been appointed to the position, after her predecessor was unfortunately arrested for ‘corruption’ (nobody was quite sure exactly what she’d done). Abbott, despite her role, had never before left Kerlile. She was somewhat nervous about the summit, the fate of her predecessor still playing on her mind. Still, she wouldn’t show any nerves in front of the men.

As the Kerlians exited their plane, they all had in their minds what they wanted out of the conference. To increase trade, and to improve Kerlile’s image on the international stage. And, Katrine Porter thought smugly, hopefully mildly frighten some of the male attendees in the process.

Tofino International Airport, Zamastan
February 22nd, Afternoon

A grey plane approached the airport, spartan in appearance asides for the large silver lettering on the side spelling out "ISS-1." Inside the plane, aides and attaches to surrounded a table, pouring over various documents and data in preparation for the upcoming summit. Three directors and a president sat in comfortable cushioned chairs in the room closer to the cockpit, while the last director briefed the security personnel on the other side of the plane. A few crew members looked outside the windows, having never been to the country before and taking a chance to see it from above.

As the plane finally landed, a sigh of relief was breathed by many of the staff - they were almost out of nicotine. Quickly lining up, the aides watched as President Sloan, dressed in a charcoal 3-piece suit, descended the stairs, followed by his two personal bodyguards. The only color on his suit was a golden pin, with the crow of the Shuellian flag engraved on it.

As President Sloan did, Director of International Affairs Hoffman, Director of Energy Klein, and Director of Trade Goudier stepped off the plane, each escorted by two sour-faced security personnel. Hoffman was the most noticeable of the trio, wearing a navy blue 2-piece suit and flashing a confident grin. Klein, a plain-looking man wearing glasses, hurriedly descended, talking into a phone pressed to his ear. Goudier, the only female director present for the summit, left the plane, dressed in a plaid grey blazer and skirt. Thanking the men escorting her, she stepped off to the side, next to the other directors.

Finally, after a momentary pause, the last Director descended the staircase, with the rest of the staff following closely behind. Director Fischer, of External Security, appears to be the oldest of the group, with visible grey and silver hair. He's dressed in a khaki suit and cap, with a belt holster on him, occupied with a pistol of some kind. He's a weary-looking man, with wrinkled, tan skin.

As the last of the grey-suited staff exited, they moved on, already planning on what to do at the upcoming summit.
