The Darvasi Trade Council was founded in 3681 AL in an attempt for peace after several wars swept across the continent. Its primary purpose is to regulate international trade across Darvasi, but it is also a place where the various nations can bring grievances and attempt to work out a peaceful solution without having to resort to further war. Additionally, if a common enemy threatens the continent, generals from each nation join the bureaucrats and discuss strategy.
Each nation has its own representative, even if two nations are at war with one another. This is because, without a seat on the trade council, a nation that is deemed large enough to be part of the council forfeits international trade and may even be embargoed until it rejoins the council.
Each member of the council is selected differently by their own nation. Some are elected, some are appointed by their king. Table 1 shows the title and abbreviation of each race on the council
Table 2 shows all the first members of the founding of the council and what nation they came from.

The Executive Chairman is voted into his or her position. Unlike other matters, a Chairman’s vote is worth just as much as other representatives when it comes to electing the Executive Chairman. To be eligible, one must already be a Chairman. In the event of there being a tie, a second vote takes place. This time, only the Chairmen can vote. The first Executive Chairman election was a tie between Kr. Kupfer and Cn. Diamante. After the tie-breaker, the first Executive Chairman became Consigliere Zaffiro Diamante. In addition to his votes counting twice, like those of other Chairmen, he also had the power to veto any suggestions of which he did not approve.
