The State Protection Authority of the Imperial State of Constancia (informally known as the Krypteia) is the primary security, intelligence, surveillance, and counter-intelligence agency of the Imperial State of Constancia, established by Autokratorial Decree bearing date 13.VIII.1679. It is headed by a Director-General who holds office at the pleasure of the Autokrator of Constancia. It utilizes military-style ranks and uniforms, except when ordered otherwise by the Director-General.

Among its earliest duties include protection of the Imperial family and high officials of the Imperial Constancian government and their offices and residences, as well as protection of the integrity of the Constancian currency. They currently possess authority to enforce any Constancian law, and have broad arrest, search, and seizure powers.

It is estimated to formally employ nearly half a million in personnel, excluding informants, infiltrators, and agents.


The Office of Strategic Interests Research Intelligence Service is the intelligence and information collation arm of the Authority and maintains the notorious Erebus database.
