The Terran Council

Secretary-Generals of the Terran Council

Originally a biennial meeting of Nexus delegates, held in conjunction with the World Creativity Conference (usually held around the first weekend in September).


The Fifteenth Terran Council, held during the crisis of 2042, superceded the United Nations and became the de facto world government. Its authority was confirmed by a series of plebicites held in 2043-44. Following this date, the Terran Council met in regular sessions. At first, the 101 delegates were appointed or elected on a regional basis, generally following Nexus geographical divisions; by 2100, 42 seats were held by Nexus families, and the remaining 59 seats were at large.
In 2153, the 70th Terran Council proclaimed the Terran Empire, and reorganized as the Imperial Council.
