The Great Lakes Council (GLC), is an intergovernmental organization responsible for maintaining regional peace and security, developing friendly relations among Great Lakes nations (micronations located in the Canadian Province of Ontatio and the U.S States of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota), achieving regional cooperation, and being a center for harmonizing the actions of nations. The GLC is headquartered on international territory in Paloma City; other main offices are in Charriot'sVille, which the building is shared with the Paloman Embassy to Kapreburg.
The GLC has four principal organs: the General Assembly; the Security Council; the Trusteeship Council; and the Supreme Court of the GLC. The GLC's leader is the Chairman, currently by the Paloman President and diplomat Aidan McGrath since the GLC's founding on the 25 November 2019. The organization is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states.
In fall of 2019, one year after the end of the World Micronational Commitee, the President of the Socialist State of Paloma, Aidan McGrath, wanted a new more organized organization for micronations in the general area of the Great Lakes region. The organisation was formed between the founding member states of Socialist State of Paloma (located in Michigan), the Empire of Kapreburg and the Federal Union of Wegmat (both located in Illinois).
In late December of 2019, the GLC was organized and began to invite members from the Microwiki Community. The organisation expanded adding two nations, the Somcowian Federation and the Grand Duchy of Sayville. Additionally, the organisation also received one independent observer representing no country, that is Anna Telford.
