The Mergan Secreto Intelligencia, MSI, is the foreign intelligence agency of Mergany, directly subordinated to the Chancellor's Office. Its headquarter is located in Stanncatt. In 2014, the MSI employed around 3 500 people.
The MSI acts as an early warning system to alert the Mergan government to threats to Mergan interests from abroad. It depends heavily on wiretapping and electronic surveillance of international communications. It collects and evaluates information on a variety of areas such as international non-state terrorism, weapons of mass destruction proliferation and illegal transfer of technology, organized crime, weapons and drug trafficking, money laundering, illegal migration and information warfare. As Mergany’s only overseas intelligence service, the MSI gathers both military and civil intelligence.
