Authority Government Information Database

Authority Government
Information Database



Overview: The Authority must deal with many and varied Entities involved with the anomalous; for the most part these are fringe groups, much like the Authority themselves. However, some Entities operate within the framework of the non-anomalous world, as agencies for nations and international organizations. Dealing with the population-control cult of Malthus is very different form negotiating with the legitimate representatives of China; whether hostile or cooperative, the power dynamics and threat that the latter may pose is radically different. Such Groups are registered within the Authority Global Information Database, colloquially known as the Agencies of Interest. The Database contains entries on these Groups as well as government programs related to the anomalous.

PCAAO1.png

Overview: A paramilitary giant in the present day, the PCAAO has its roots in a bureaucratic collection office. Created in the wake of the Communist victory in the Chinese Civil War, the People's Committee was tasked with securing objects, locations, and persons inherited from China's long history with the anomalous. Operational use of these anomalies was the responsibility of the powerful People's Liberation Army (PLA) Special Directorate. However, after China's flawed and disappointing use of the anomalous in the Korean War (provoking the most violent and effective response in the history of the typically impotent United Nations Anomalous Activities Committee), the PLA's Special Directorate was castigated, its leader arrested, and its methods shamed. Shortly thereafter the PCAAO rose to prominence and gradually replaced the PLA as China's premier anomalous agency.

Backed by the enormous strength and growing confidence of the People's Republic of China, the PCAAO is a valuable ally and formidable opponent. The rise of China has coincided with the PCAAO's expanded influence in Asia and Africa, bringing the organization into the global anomalous community. And yet, the PCAAO is just as likely to cooperate with the ASF in Nigeria as it is to violently assault an Authority dig team in Mongolia; often, it perpetrates friendly and hostile acts in the same hour. Fundamentally, the PCAAO of the 21st century is torn between opposite impulses; the international agency that works for the good of mankind, and the government force that protects China and her people from the anomalous at all costs, often at others' expense. Authority personnel are warned to treat the PCAAO with significant caution; it's often difficult to predict whether the PCAAO will act with cooperation or violent self-interest.

MIo1sOZ.png

Overview: Monarch Security, commonly referred as Military Intelligence Section XIII (MI13), was formed after the conclusion of a decades long government investigation. It was concluded that paranatural occurrences throughout the British Empire posed a significant threat towards the British government and Crown. As a result, Downing Street established a special department under the Directorate of Military Intelligence, designated as MI-13. To face the precedent threat against the occurrences, they were tasked with the security and protection of Great Britain and British Overseas Territories of all kind.

Monarch Security is overseen by a parliamentary committee based at Westminster, named the Defence Anomalies and Security Select Committee. However, the rest of the organization's structure and personnel management remains ambiguous, though it is clear that the organization retains much influence and funding than any other intelligence service body within the British government.

United Nations Anomalous Activities Committee

UNAAC.png

The United Nations Anomalous Activities Committee (UNAAC) is a global regulatory body for "official" anomalous agencies, usually those operating with the backing of a national government (PCAAO, MI13, etc). Established in 1945 with the signing of the International Anomalous Accords, UNAAC's charter directs it to restrict and police the actions of anomalous agencies; actual enforcement of the Accords is weak and mostly left to the collective pressure of UNAAC member organizations during particularly outrageous rule breaking, such as national governments using the anomalous in wartime.

In practical terms, UNAAC is a negotiating table where the Authority carries the most weight. Relatively impotent by itself, UNAAC is valuable as a forum to redress grievances and smooth over competing interests between anomalous agencies in an established, diplomatic setting; conflict between these agencies amounts to fratricide, only benefiting the extreme groups that lurk below. To that end, as well, UNAAC facilitates the coordination of agencies and governments against dangerous anomalous GOIs.

Project Blue Book is a large-scale multinational government agency formed by the UN security council to resist against Incursion and assault by non-human entities and research technologies for use in the defense of humanity. Project Blue Book primarily operates in space however many facilities can be found on earth. Not much is known about Blue Book save for the fact that Project Blue Book is divided into the Xeno Defense Bureau (XDB), Scientific Research Bureau (SRB), and the Engineering and Manufacturing Bureau (EMB).

The RPC maintains a tenuous relation with Blue Book depending on the circumstances, they could either be at odds or working together. Blue Book as an entity receives a great deal of support by the United Nations who feel that Blue Book is "A more loyal alternative to dealing through the UNAAC". Most nations support Blue Book in some way or other whether its allocating funds, providing troops, or hosting bases.
