Governments Of Interest


Governos da Autoridade

Base de Dados Informativa



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 Governments of Interest. The Database contains entries on these Groups as well as government programs related to the anomalous.

People's Committee for the Acquisition of Anomalous Objects (China)

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.
