The founding of The Mali Empire

Recommended Posts

I, Sundiata Keita, through the strength of UNITY of the local tribes, have founded The Mali Empire.  The great chronicler, Ibn Khaldun, has generously offered to begin writing a recollection of important events in order to document our current affairs and ensure they are carefully inscribed into the pages of HISTORY.  His chronicle begins....

The Mali Empire was founded on 15 May, 2017.  How could such a small nation be referred to as an empire?  The story is indicative of why Sundiata Keita is the ruler of this great empire.  The Sosso empire, led by Soumaoro Kante, was an opportunistic state that fed upon the dying carcass of the Ghana Empire.  They swept across West Africa in their conquest for land, eventually subjugating the Mandinka people, among others.  Sundiata refused to allow this evil emperor dominate his people.  He discovered the spirit animal of Soumaoro, a rooster.  Sundiata gathered his people into a force to be reckoned with and came up with a military plan in order to defeat Soumaoro and the Sosso Empire.  The two armies met on the battlefield of Kirina.  Both leaders were sorcerers, and used their magic to intimidate the opposing forces.  However, Sundiata, being a skilled archer, attached the tip of a rooster's spur to his arrowhead and shot Soumaoro through the shoulder, draining him of his magic. 

 

Sundiata then led his troops to a resounding victory over the Sosso.  He and his force returned to Niani, where they laid the foundations for a new empire, The Mali Empire.  The military conquest battle for independence was over, now the tedious work of nation building began.  Sundiata decided that the lead and marble that his people produced would not be enough to sustain the empire.  So he sent out many diplomats to foreign lands to find exotic and beneficial resources, such as gold and lumber.  He is currently attempting to form an economic pact between these foreign lands known as the Trans African Beginner Partnerhsip Pact, designed for new nations to assist each other.  Though progress is slow going, the economic advisors ensure the emperor that other lands will agree to this very lucrative partnership.

 

In order to increase trade capacity, a massive effort was begun to build a harbor on the Sankarini river.  The project was quickly completed and serves to demonstrate the prowess of this new empire, the ability to unify its people to create great structures for the common good.  Several boats from far away lands have begun arriving, carrying with them not only valuable resources but also explorers and diplomats seeking to learn about this new empire.

The Mali Empire, being a week old, has determined that the only way it may survive in this world is by forming military alliances with other nations.  The West Florida Republic, under the outstanding leadership of Fulwar Skipwith, has joined with the Empire to form the Pagan Alliance of Green Nations.  These two small nations have also joined in on the Trans African trade circle to improve their economic fortunes.  Together, they seek to rise up and build an alliance that will grow to cover the entire world.  Through the bonds of economic and military partnership, no enemy can break the bond between these two countries.
