The Reichsnachrichtendienst (English: Imperial Intelligence Service), also known as the Renadi or RND, and previously known as the Abeldane Intelligence Agency was the intelligence agency of the Abeldane Empire, collecting and analysing information on both foreign and domestic threats to national security.
The Reichsnachrichtendienst was founded on 11 August 2016 as the Abeldane Intelligence Agency by Ava Neasa, Countess of New Douala, who was appointed by the Reichsversammlung after the passing of the Intelligence Act, and was then given the title of Director of the Agency and given complete authority over the AIA along with supervision from the Reichsregierungskabinett.
The AIA would see a number of new directors and operations before the name of the agency was changed to Reichsnachrichtendienst in May 2020, following the enactment of the Intelligence Reform Act by the Reichsversammlung
The RND routinely ran operations in the interests of the national security of the Empire. According to Abeldane law, the RND was required to give out information under the "Freedom of Information", unless it pertains to vital national security reasons. During its existence, two freedom of information requests were made, which resulted in a major lawsuit against the agency.
In the aftermath of the Concordiagate scandal, it was revealed how the Renadi had operated secretly under the direction of Stephen Freayth for most of its history, and had partaken in manipulating Abeldane democracy. It was even revealed that during 2017-2018 the agency had in effect been operating as a secret shadow government.
The agency was dissolved by a unanimous act of the Reichsversammlung on 8 August 2020.
