The high government of the Clave. This group of partially elected officials set policy and determine the course of civilization. The job is highly prestigious and given its importance in things, comes with excellent housing and salary. The head of the Council is always one of the elected position, rather than one of the appointed, and is currently (and has been for the past 13 years) Dr. Trina Sinclair.
The Council has 11 representatives who all have equal voting rights, and are served by a number of Envoys with speaking privileges but no vote, who typically serve as subject matter experts and general advisors to the Council. Any representative may appoint any number of envoys, though custom is no more than two as regulars, and it is rarely abused.
The Clave Hall is located, along with other important but non-industrial offices, at Satori Square, in the northern center of the city, and has its own Inner and Outer Circle Stop.
