The Security Council of the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact (commonly referred as the Security Council) is one of the principal organs of the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact and is in charged of leading the collective forces of the Pact during war. All of the signatories' military forces are not required to abide to the Security Council and instead, the Council acts as a councilor and mentor to the member countries during times of war or conflict. The Council also ensures that no conflicts come in between the signatories or their non-Sunshiner allies. Its powers include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of sanctions, coordinating and ensuring that the military forces of STOP work together, the maintenance of the STOP Peacekeepers, and the monitoring of hostile acts against STOP or its allies.
As the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact is generally an ACT organization, the Security Council's acts do not need to be followed although its participating members have the right to enforce it. The Council is administered by elected councilors and its actions are performed through the Security Assembly.
After the end of the Great Pacific War, President Justin Vuong of the United States of JBR proposed several officers and governmental bodies to assist the Secretary-General. Among the proposed, it included the Security Council. After brief explanation, the Security Council was approved and established by Johann Haupsmann, who was elected as Secretary-General a day before.
The Security Council became the successor of the External Operations, which previously served as the Pact's "optional" department that covered over functions that were not directly given to the Pact (e.g., military affairs). The Council replaced the necessity of presenting military-related bills to the STOP Council through the creation of the Security Assembly. With the creation of the Assembly, it saw an introduction of six bills or resolutions within 3 months of its establishment.
The Security Council became especially active during the Third Midwayan Civil War and Somali War where participating members attempted to oust the Greater Midwayan Empire, the successor to the STOP signatory, the Union of Midway. It also made some effort to stop internal dispute during the Saharan War and the South Caucasus War.
