Concord Diplomatic Service
The Concord is deeply involved in galactic affairs, and the Chancellor commands a vast number of diplomatic functionaries in one of the executive branch’s largest departments, the Concord Diplomatic Service. The current Director of the Diplomatic Service is Ihsan Karra, a resident of the Concord Sagittarius Neutrality.
At the foundation of the Diplomatic Service are the ambassadors in each large, settled system of the Concord Neutralities and Protectorates. These ambassadors operate as field agents, and command staffs of as many as 1,000 who keep tabs on various planets in a system, major urban centers, military readiness, local legislation, and taxation. They also work closely with the Concord Investigative Bureau.
The ambassadors assign deputy ambassadors to watch over specific cities, planets, and installations, and to investigate charges and conditions throughout the system.
