Noshem

SECURITY THREAT: LOW
An attack is highly unlikely at this time. This is because there are very few people who want to cause harm to Vekllei, and there is little means to conduct an attack on this country.

There are very few violent extremists with the intention to conduct an attack onshore, and the risk factors of an attack have been reduced. You do not need to change your daily behaviour or activities.
SECURITY THREAT: MODERATE
An attack is possible, but not likely. This is because there are a few people in Vekllei and overseas who want to cause this country harm, and may pose a risk to public safety.

The threat from scandinationalists and religious extremists has moderated. The ability for these groups to attack Vekllei have been substantially degraded, and support for these groups has declined. You do not need to change your daily behaviour or activities.
SECURITY THREAT: SUBSTANTIAL
An attack is likely. This is because extremists, including scandinationalists and religious fundamentalists, have support in Vekllei and overseas and may attempt to attack this country.

Rising anti-government sentiment and anti-Vekllei extremist beliefs can create conditions for an attack. It is important that Vekllei people remain aware of their surroundings in busy public places and report suspicious activity.
SECURITY THREAT: SEVERE
An attack is highly likely. This is because Noshem is aware of extremists in Vekllei and overseas who intend to attack this country. The risk of danger to Vekllei people is considerable.

In these conditions, support for extremist beliefs are a serious risk to public safety. Vekllei people should reconsider their need for travel and be aware of their surroundings in public places. All suspicious activity should be reported.
SECURITY THREAT: CERTAIN
An attack is imminent. Noshem are aware of a plan to attack this country. Danger is certain and Vekllei people may need to act immediately to save lives.

Extremists are planning to commit an act of terror against Vekllei and the public may be in danger. Vekllei people should stay away from all public places, cancel plans to travel and shelter in place. All suspicious activity should be reported.
Noshem is part of the Security Parliament

The Commonwealth Intelligence Service (National Intelligence, or Noshem) is the secret service of Vekllei and the Commonwealth’s primary covert intelligence apparatus abroad. It is concerned with intelligence-gathering, surveillance and operations external to the Commonwealth. It is organised into 40 semiautonomous outlines, which each may operate several offices. Noshem’s sophisticated intelligence network and broad mandate contribute to its legendary reputation abroad, and conspiracies of its presence in almost every country.

Noshem is unique in its broad recruitment of foreigners, many of whom are promised citizenship and residency in Vekllei. Many Noshem outlines recruit locally, and manage foreign assets through Vekllei-born supervisors.
