The National Council of Malta (also known as the NCM, NC, and Maltese National Council) is a council formed in 823 AS by influential Maltese personalities who are united in opposition to the Maltese status quo. After the Council of Dons ceased to exist, the smaller families and syndicates of Malta began to consolidate themselves into small but numerous councils, usually with members of the nobility at their head. At first, the only goal of these councils was to secure their own influence in a rapidly changing world. Slowly but surely, they grew into true political movements, almost invariably with a distinctly conservative bent. Despite the new addition of domestic political rhetoric, the councils still mostly focused their real efforts at increasing their own profits.
However, the ideological undercurrents of nationalism were not to remain dormant forever; by now, the consolidated nobility had a better idea of the national interests of Malta. Along with the constant efforts to increase their own income and power, some families, or sometimes individuals, began to feel strongly a patriotic duty to Malta. Even so, discerning true patriots from conniving plutocrats remained a difficult task. In the wake of this, the National Council of Malta was formed as the union of the disparate local Maltese opposition, with strong support from former political exiles who decided to return to Malta, in some cases in flagrant disregard to the current order. As their influence extends and former enemies and exiles return, throwing their lot in with each other, the National Council has only continued to grow in power.
