The High Council of Aloia is a legislative chamber in the bicameral legislature of the Kingdom of Aloia, and together with the Senate makes up the Legislature. Each state is represented by two Lord Councillors, regardless of population, who serve staggered six-year terms. The High Council chamber is located in the Council Chambers of Concordia Hall, in Zumbrota. The Senate convenes in the same building.

The Council has several exclusive powers not granted to the Senate, including consenting to treaties as a precondition to their ratification and consenting to or confirming appointments of Cabinet secretaries, federal judges, other federal executive officials, military officers, regulatory officials, ambassadors, and other federal uniformed officers, as well as trial of federal officials impeached by the Senate. The Council is widely considered both a more deliberative and more prestigious body than the Senate, due to its longer terms, smaller size, and statewide constituencies, which historically led to a more collegial and less partisan atmosphere.
