The Commissioners of the Secret Service are the dark horses of the game. They play their games of deception in the shadows and will attempt to subvert others to their cause.

The gamer-run Justice System is a part of the realistic role-play of Rulers of the Sea, but it is also a community self-regulation tool. Governments of all 150+ nations set their own standards of justice and behaviour, and if gamers don’t like it they can always re-locate to a different nation where things are better.
