The king is at the head of the empire, with his might all of his enemies tremble before him and cower. His Great council exists to tend with all the needs of the empire that he cannot do alone by himself. Below them are warlords who are given control over a region and make sure resources and order are the only thing that prosper.
To turn Africa into a power that it was meant to be and that the world will never cross them and echo throughout the ages.
Their are more weapons in the empire than any other place in the world. Everywhere you go you find them and their cruel owners that use them to for people to work in mines for mineral, building more weapons of war, to enslave other to their will, and forcing them and their children to become soldiers in their wars.

South Africa Although independent by the twenty first century was still dealing with many problems. Corruption being one of them while its people suffer. A civil war would break out right before the invasion oft 2020 came and it would continue long after the invaders tore apart souther Africa. The war lasted for another decade while spreading it to it neighbors as well and then the third world war erupted. The region already on the brink of collapse where one of the First Nations to fall in the first few months of the war. War had taken its toll on the souther Africa with much of its land destroyed war and famine and disease took its place where life once was. militia fought over the resources that were left. Millions would be killed in the process when the war finally ended and the beauty of the land was turned into a barren landscape. Then from this man made waste land a warrior appeared who power was strike fear on all those who gazed upon him. He claimed to the descendant of Shaka, the great king of the Zulus who live centuries ago. His name was Shaka as well who came from the lands of the Zulu people and the stench of death was said follow him where ever he went.he vowed that that anyone followed him that they anyone who followed him would receive untold power in his new empire and those who didn't would be his slaves. One by one the warlords who ruled the wastes would fall or bowed before him. His military tactic and prowess became legendary amongst the people, for there efficiency and brutality. The Zulus was again had dominion over the southern africa once again and greater empire rose over the previous one. But their thirst for power and glory was not quenched and soon headed north to claim new land where the land was lush and plentiful. One by one, regions fell under the might of the Zulu Empire as they marked unopposed in their conquest. Until finally they reached the lands of the African Republic. Shaka knew in the republic fell the endless resources of central Africa would be enough to build a greater army and conquer the rest of the continent. The Zulus believed that this was going to be an easy fight since the force of the republic seemed weak to them. But they where sadly mistake and for git the most important rule of war, never underestimate your opponent. As the fighting began the Zulus where pushed back from every assault they made on the border. They had no experience fighting such a well trained force until now and payed for it dearly. With their numbers and resources dwindling they were forced to sign a peace treaty with the republic and have been regaining their strength since then. Creating devastating machines of war and creating grater army than ever before. War is all they know and they will do everything in their power to take what they want.
