Council of Women
The Council of Women is the provisional head of state of the Dark Berry Islands. Established in 1704 by Sofia Fasthey following her election to the leader of the government-in-exile of the DBI during the Dark Berry Islands civil war, it consists of five women who together share the role of the head of state.
Together, the five members of the Council of Women hold the executive, and any decision taken by them must meet a majority (including the vote of the chairwomen, unless that vote is a motion of confidence in the chairwoman). They are tasked with the sole responsibility of foreign affairs, but must also approve any bills passed through the lower house of government. They can pass through any bill they like without consultation in the lower house, although the lower house can implement a veto if a majority demand a vote and a supermajority (67%) oppose the law.
The Council is made up of five women, who each share a distinct role.

The council of women was able to impose its legal authority on the Dark Berry Islands as and when areas of the island were taken from the eventually disposed Oswin Fasthey during the civil war.
