So would't they have a lot of power?
The only one we see reporting to them is Regius since he is involved in the Scagletti conspiracy to import combat cyborgs into the TSAB. Of course this is done is the very ominous manner of darkened room with screens representing each of the High Council members with "Sound Only" on each. If they were a genuine ruling council to the TSAB, they wouldn't need for the secrecy nor such a sneaky means to accomplish their goals. Plus the only person who knew of their location was their assistance who maintained their machinery.

A council does govern the TSAB, which is the same one that gathered at Ground Force's HQ for the meeting right before the attack by Jail and his forces. That council consisted of the 3 legendary admirals and heads of each TSAB section.

The 'brains' as you refer to them were a means to develop the plot of bringing in combat cyborgs into the TSAB. Originally outlawed due to how they are 'produced,' Regius wanted to bring them into Ground Forces due to his beliefs that GF get shafted so to speak with all the Aces and powerful mages being deployed in other divisions. Thus they were the ones backing Regius and using him as their puppet of sorts to bring both of their goals to fruit. Not to mention they were over a century old which would explain the brain in jar look. The human body can only survive for so long and it was probably easier for them to stay alive with machines supporting their brains rather than their entire bodies. Plus it would have less of a trail to lead back to them with no need for food or other needs other than power and maintainable (which only their aid was able to do). Again I refer you to SEELE from Evangelion. Though they weren't brains but wrinkly old men who become a refreshing beverage. Yummy
