State Office for Information (effective January 1, 2012)
The National Intelligence Service is the national intelligence agency of the East Asian Federation, including military intelligence. The agency was founded in 1997 to fill a growing need for counter-intelligence operations domestically and internationally in the face of rising regional tensions.
It is currently under the administration of the State Office for Defense, but a reorganization effective January 1, 2012 will see it passed into the control of the new State Office for Information, and military intelligence operations split off into the new 37th Signals Intelligence Division of the Federation Air Forces.
The National Intelligence Service's primary duties are to proactively defend the nation from being undermined by external and internal forces and to inform the federal government about possible threats from those forces, so that they may act on information beforehand. The NIS works closely with the Air Forces, embassy staff, and state offices to gather intelligence and perform various operations, including counter-intelligence.
