The Interplanetary Council meets 5 times every 2 years on Narsa, an inhabited asteroid considered neutral ground between the Five Corners. The Council consists of 15 seats, for 3 representatives from each of the corners. Each has their own methods of choosing their representatives on the Council. The times of the Council meetings on Narsa are a chance for the powerful and the influential (and the curious) to gather and mingle in neutral territory. It is also a chance for students at the Academy to get a glimpse of their futures.
