The Umojan Ruling Council is the governing body of the Umojan Protectorate.
As the passengers of the Reagan spread across Umoja, they quickly adopted a method of fair and democratic governance that later became known as the Umojan Ruling Council. It had a philosophy of leaving nothing to waste, which kept Umoja's flora and fauna unspoiled.
The Ruling Council was immediately wary of the growing influence of the Terran Confederacy. Its members saw the outcome of the Guild Wars as utterly abusive. As a result, the Ruling Council held an emergency sitting and formed the Umojan Protectorate. Remaining on Umoja, the Ruling Council invited members from allied colonies into its ranks and became the governing body of the entire Protectorate.
Members of the Ruling Council debated whether or not the Dominion would ever make more forceful moves against Umoja or its allies. Regardless, they unanimously agreed to continue their subversive activities and were prepared to take any action necessary to preserve the freedom of Umoja and other Protectorate worlds.
