The State Intelligence Agency, also known as the SIA, is the intelligence agency of the Empire of Austenasia, collecting and analysing information on both foreign and domestic threats to national security.

History

The State Intelligence Agency was founded on 8 August 2009 by Emperor Terry I, who appointed his son Crown Prince Jonathan the Director-General of the secret organisation and gave him complete authority over the SIA as Prime Minister. Immediately before his ascension to the Throne in January 2013 as the now Emperor Jonathan I, the then Crown Prince transferred authority over the SIA from the office of Prime Minister to the Throne.

On 8 August 2017, Jonathan I issued an Imperial Edict publicly acknowledging the existence of the SIA for the first time, and appointing the incumbent Iron Lord Daniel Dankovsky as Director-General.

The SIA routinely runs operations in the interests of the national security of the Empire. Only two have been publicly acknowledged, both of which took place during the Austenasian Civil War: Project Caesar, which examined any susceptibility to invasion of both Wrythe and Zephyria, and Project Imperium, which explored any ideological foundations to strengthen the legitimacy of the claim to the Throne of Emperor Esmond III.
