The World Council of Birsiba was the governing body of the fifth planet in the Birsiban system. The World Council consisted of three councilors with equal power. The World Council existed in thousands of parallel universes, including the primary universe.
In 2373, the three councilors of Birsiba were R'Lee, Lelah Bir and Fando Jee. In an alternate timeline, Councilor R'Lee made first contact with USS Voyager after the ship answered Birsiba's distress call. This event was averted when Voyager prevented a global catastrophe on the planet from occurring in the first place. (VOY novel: Echoes)
