The Union's Guarding Eyes
A police division in the Rilanga Union tasked with monitoring its citizens.
The Kon Umbigreda served to identify treasonous activity among the citizens of the Rilanga Union. Officially, this was done to protect lawful civilians from Ran-E-Zu sympathizers who might infiltrate places of power or organize terrorist attacks.
Confidential government documents, published after the Final War, revealed that this division controlled every major communication hub within Rilanga territory. They monitored telephone lines, radio transmissions and even had specialists for opening and re-sealing letter envelopes or packages without leaving a trace. What made the work of the Kon Umbigreda especially insidious was the way they recruited friends and family members of their targets, or outright planted their spies in people's social circles.
The Tamak Lul Kon Umbigreda were established in the year 7 NZR, during the time of tension that eventually led to the Final War. The extent to which they spied on the population was only known to a select few government officials. On the surface, they merely responded to lawful citizens reporting their concerns and suspicions. However, rumors soon came up that their definition of "lawful citizen" was rather flexible, and as the Final War began, more and more stories circulated about how they had their eyes and ears everywhere. People became increasingly worried about voicing non-conformist opinions or acting in ways that might draw the attention of the retvusureda, literally the "watchers of everything".
During the Peace Conference, it was decided to abolish this organization completely, along with its equivalent within the Ran-E-Zu Confederation.
