The Council was a secretive and nearly anonymous group that met once a year and saw no one personally, no matter how vital or urgent the issue. It oversaw a slow and difficult bureaucracy that lumbered under the weight of its responsibilities. Though Orion corporations would typically ignore such a governmental obstruction, it was simply not possible to do so on Vem'ir due to the immense number of businesses that operated there, far too many for them to coordinate and cooperate amongst themselves (FASA RPG module: The Orions: Book of Common Knowledge).
