The Chao Suweiai (Imperial Councils in the common language) is a bicameral Jingdaoese institution that provides advice to the Heavenly Light and the Grand Secretariat. It is a successor to the National Diet but its legislative powers are more limited. It consists of the Gong Suweiai and the Sifang Suweiai. The Gong Suweiai provides advice on laws and decrees which are proposed by the emperor. It can also adopt its own laws and offer them to the emperor for toleration. The Sifang Suweiai provides advice to the Heavenly Light and Grand Secretariat on matters that are state-secret.


The Chao Suweiai has been established by the Chidao Emperor at the beginning of his reign, when he abolished the National Diet that was established under the Xianfa Constitution. Under the Xianfa Constitution, the emperor's position was derived from the will of the people, and the powers of the emperor were bound by the constitution. The Chidao Emperor replaced it with his own philosophy of Jingbuist Absolutism in which the emperor's power is directly derived from the Gods and there is no place for the will of the people. Between 1659 when the decree 'Against democracy on our continent' was published and 1667, the Chao Suweiai functioned without a legislative framework according to customary law and the will of the emperor. In 1667 the Chidao Emperor formally declared that the Chidao Constitution would be tolerated, which formalized the possition of the councils.
