The ruling council of a city-state is comprised of either five or seven members.
In most cases, these members are elected by the populace via the methods
described in HELP ELECTIONS. HELP <city> will show you who the members of the
ruling council are. In cities with a strictly theocratic government, council
members are appointed by the divine patron(s).

While the perceived responsibilities of a ruling council may vary in the eyes
of each citizen, it can safely be said that the ruling council must take
credit, or blame, for what happens to their city. While the power to actually
affect most city-related things lies in the hands of the Ministers and their
aides, it is the ruling council who chooses the leader and appoints Ministers.
If Ministers or the leader are doing a poor job, that would be the concern of
the ruling council.

Members of the Ruling Council earn 200 renown per hour while logged in, up to
400 renown per day or until they hit cap (see HELP RENOWN). 

As a member of a ruling council, you may use the following commands:

 - Summary of all city ministries gold movement.

CITY FINANCE REPORT <ministry> [<year>]
 - Line by line expenditures and income for a particular ministry.

 - Line by line expenditures and income for credit movement.

    - The syntax is: CITY MUTE <infidel> <TEMP|INDEFINITE> <reason>. TEMP will 
      mute for an hour then wear off. INDEFINITE will mute until someone does 
      CITY UNMUTE on the muted person. The reason will be recorded in the city 
      logs. This is on a trial basis only. Cities abusing this power to mute 
      left and right will find they no longer have access to it.
