It is important to note that Clockman is not governed by a single body, but rather by a collection of governments that provide services to their constituents on a subscription basis. This is about as insane as it sounds. As such, the Clockman Government Council is not a government in and of itself, but rather a council of governments - where they convene to establish common rules, discuss matters of importance to each organization, and desperately try to prevent the outbreak of utter chaos. It is almost certainly not the pawn of a cabal of Mau known as the Knitting Coalition. The Council is overseen by a mayor, elected "bi-annually". Sometimes that’s understood to mean twice a year, sometimes that’s understood to mean every two years.
