04 April, 2017​

By the authority vested in me as General Secretary of the Workers' Party of TCB by the Constitution and the laws of the People's Republic of The Communist Bloc, I hereby order as follows:

1) The following offices shall have the authority to issue security classifications:

  • a: The General Secretary - Shall have the authority to issue, remove and change all levels of classification on any piece of Government information.
  • b: The Minister of Defense - Shall have the authority to issue, remove and change the lower three (3) levels of classification on all pieces of Government information relating to regional security and military affairs.
  • c: The Minister of Information - Shall have the authority to issue, remove and change the lowest level of classification on all pieces of Government information that is not related to regional security and military affairs.​

2) There shall be 4 levels of classification for Government information, split into (in order of seniority):

  • a: “Top Secret” - Any document or piece of information with this classification is to be indefinitely held from public view, and may only be applied and removed by the General Secretary. It is reserved for information that is deemed as, if released, will cause severe damage to the region, to the point of collapse, and endangers the freedom and rights of its citizens. Release of any piece of information, without sanction from the General Secretary, with this classification shall be treated as espionage (cf. Criminal Law Act 2016, s23) and shall carry a minimum sentence of 12 months banishment from the region. It shall also carry a permanent ban from ever holding public office or position of trust within the Communist Bloc.
  • b: “Secret” - Any document or piece of information with this classification is to be held from public view for a maximum of 400 days, and may only be applied by the Minister of Defense and the General Secretary. It is reserved for information that is deemed as, if released, will cause major damage to the region, the PRAF and endangers the freedom and rights of its citizens. Release of any piece of information, without sanction from the General Secretary, with this classification shall be treated as espionage (cf. Criminal Law Act 2016, s23) and shall carry a minimum sentence of 6 months banishment from the region. It shall also carry a 12 month ban from holding public office or position of trust within the Communist Bloc.
  • c: “Classified” - Any document or piece of information with this classification is to be held from public view for a maximum of 160 days, and may only be applied by the Minister of Defense and the General Secretary. It is reserved for information that is deemed as, if released, will cause damage to the region, the PRAF and endangers some freedoms and rights of its citizens. Release of any piece of information, without sanction from the General Secretary or Minister of Defense, with this classification shall be treated as espionage (cf. Criminal Law Act 2016, s23) and shall carry a maximum sentence of 3 months banishment from the region and a 6 month ban from holding public office or position of trust within the Communist Bloc.
  • d: “Restricted” - Any document or piece of information with this classification is to be held from public view for a maximum of 60 days, and may only be applied by the Minister of Information, Minister of Defense and the General Secretary. It is reserved for information that is deemed as, if released, will cause temporary damage to the region, the PRAF and endangers some freedoms and rights of its citizens. Release of any piece of information, without sanction from the Minister of Information, Minister of Defense and the General Secretary, shall be treated as espionage (cf. Criminal Law Act 2016, s23) and shall carry a maximum sentence of 1 month banishment from the region and a 3 month ban from holding public office or position of trust within the Communist Bloc.​

3) “Secret” and “Top Secret” information operates on a need-to-know basis, and will not be shared simply due to clearance.

4) All cabinet ministers shall have clearance to access Restricted information, assuming they agree to the measures in (s5), with the Minister of Defense having clearance to view all levels of classification. The General Secretary shall have the authority to issue any level of security clearance at will, as well as permit members of the cabinet clearance to assign levels of classification, including, but not limited to, those stipulated in this order.

5) Any citizen, when working with sensitive information, may be required to sign an “Affirmation of Security”, giving legal acknowledgement of the conditions outlined in this document. Breach of such a document may be used as evidence in legal proceedings in court, as outlined in (s2). However, the conditions in this order still apply even if such a document is not signed.

  • a) Cabinet members shall not be given access to secured information without signing an AoS.​
