Inside of the Old Götköping Stock Market, which was coincidentally across the street from the New Götköping stock market, delegations from the traditional Northern Council nations gathered. Götköping was a special city because it represented economic power in the North. Often called the Danzig of the North where stock brokers and economists gathered and oft considered where the reconstruction of Suionia really began. Here the Northern Council would meet, perhaps permanently, as the new major body of international politics in the North. With the failure of the Council of Nations on a multitude of levels, this body might be able to accomplish much of what couldn't be done in Wiese. Invited officially was Arendaal, Batavië, the Scotlands and Telora. Here it was hoped that a more permanent future was possible so also on the table was the expansion of a few other yet to be named states. As delegations sat down it was expected a guest speaker from Batavië would comment. This was seen as special because Suionia had finally agreed to recognize the new Batavian government in full and the guest speaker if anything would hold the olive branch between the two nations.
