The Council is the governing body of Inretio. It is composed of three leaders from each of The Major Cities. Every city has a City Council Hall, which contains the offices of each local council member and a meeting room large enough to house the whole council. Every year there is a council meeting, and the city in which it is held changes every time. From each city, there are Political Leaders, Economic Leaders, and Military Leaders. If an issue falls neatly into the category of only one of the groups, then only that group is summoned to discuss it. Otherwise, two or even all three will meet. Each member of The Council is also given special housing within their city, so as to avoid assassinations, which have occasionally been carried out in the past in an attempt to incite chaos.
