For centuries in memorial Cerebor has been an island of peace and opportunity. There may once have been a time where the capitol of the world was fought over but those that would have any memory of that time have long since faded into the memory of memories.
The cross council is elected by the various peoples of their island and participating regions on the larger continents. Cerebor is given a large amount of respect by the other nations of the world. Their army and money and location maintain the peace of this world. That peace has, for so long, been the key to the collective prosperity of the world.
