The State Police (Dundorfian: Staatspolizei) is the unified police force of Ostland. The State Police provide law enforcement services throughout Ostland, including the semi-autonomous Touryou State but work closely with local law enforcement to ensure that everyone's needs are met.
The Ministry of the Interior is charged overall with the administration and oversight of the State Police; however the State Police retain a high degree of autonomy due to the nature of Ostland. The Chief of the State Police (also known as the Chief of State Police) is appointed by the Minister of the Interior and confirmed by the Grand Duke.
The State Police were formed when Ostland gained independence from Hulstria and Gao-Soto. It was temporarily changed during the period in which the Independent Crownland administration was established; however it was quickly reverted when the Kingdom and subsequent Grand Duchy was restored.
