The Council is the name given to the current group of administrators of the Micronational Cartography Society, whose primary role is voting on claims on the planet Micras made by micronations.


The Council was established in 2006 upon the succession of V. C. Vehendi to the position of Administrator-General of the MCS. Prior to Vehendi's leadership, the Society's business was conducted by one or two individuals, with decisions made via despotism rather than committee. While earlier makeups of the Council saw individuals hold specified positions—such as Cartographer and a representative for the Apollo Foundation—it nowadays gives no named titles to individual Councillors other than the Administrator-General and Junior.


The Council consists of six individuals; five full Councillors and a Junior. The Administrator-General is considered a Councillor with no additional voting rights compared to the other four, while the Junior's role consists of voting on claims where at least one full Councillor is ineligible to vote due to citizenship.
