The Arcane Council is the main governing body of Cuatl.
The council resides within Council Hall, the primary governing building in Flax. It is a body of 8 council-members led by a single High Councillor, each of whom is inducted into the council via introduction by a previous council member and approval of the council. As such, a significant number of Cuatl's academic and scientific communities have served on the council before.
The goal of the council is to maintain stability within the nation of Cuatl, and direct and fund large-scale research projects within Flax.
The position of a council-member is generally avoided by potential candidates, since these candidates would prefer to conduct their own research without the burdens of research management.
