There had been several conversations over the phone which had led to this event- six delegates were meeting in Highton’s largest city to discuss trade with one of Eras’ newest nations, the Sutherland Federation. In order to allow the disputed state to survive, it’s allies would need to provide a substantial amount of aid, so the agreement was conceived as a method to simplify this process. Nathan Jarreau, the Arc-Wonderess of Sutherland, was the first to arrive at Alexandria International Airport. Jarreau had visited Highton a few months earlier, and this time was welcomed by Highton’s Crowned Prince. Over the rest of the weekend, the other delegates arrived, it being the first visit to Highton for some. The summit was to take place on Tuesday, but all were in the city for the weekend and many toured the Autonomous City. The Internationales Hotel’s conference room was to be the setting for the meeting the the eyes of the world watching, and the future of the Sutherland Federation at stake.
