The Peacekeepers are a Military Police which is controlled by the German Government, and tasked with maintaining order throughout the Empire of Germany. They essentially act as the government's internal security force in the various countries, led by a "Head Peacekeeper" who is the commander of the local garrison. They ensure that the German/Vespers' laws are obeyed, and punish those who break them. Peacekeepers serve as the Germans/Vespers' main instrument of control and repression, by arresting political dissidents. They are somewhat allianced with the German Military Support and Counter-Terrorism Department.
