History

After the 80 years war against the GMG, the remaining members of the Rheinwehr were forced to withdraw back to New Berlin and surrounding systems. With the military weakened, a period of civil unrest followed causing an increase in criminal activity across Rheinland.

To counter the growing increase in crime against the civilian population, a council of high ranking military officers quickly formed a federal police agency. This agency was responsible for the enforcement of Rheinland law, civilian and trade protection, the staffing and management of Vierlande Prison, the suppression of subversive and rebel groups, and personal protection to the Chancellor.

After several years of hard-won experience, the Rheinland Federal Polizei are an elite police organization.

Today, the Rheinland Federal Polizei (RFP) is the left hand of the Chancellor in Rheinland Territory. They enforce all laws put forth by him and punish all those who break them. This can be anything from breaking the Embargo between Liberty and Rheinland to smuggling contraband within Rheinland space. The Rheinland Federal Police are known throughout their territory to be both strict and ruthless when it comes to enforcing their laws.

Duties of the Rheinland Federal Polizei:

  • Provide police escort to ensure that necessities and luxuries are able to pass through Rheinland space without fear of pirate intervention.
  • Stop and interrogate ships who might have been a witness to or involved in any criminal activity. This activity requires the development of fun and creative detective role-play in game and in the forums.
  • Suppress civilian rebel groups, such as the Volksfront and LWB. If they resist arrest, use all necessary force to remove them from civilian sectors.
  • Patrol Rheinland territories that include New Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, Munich, and Halle.
  • Confiscate and destroy all illegal cargo. Fine the pilot of the ship (see fines below). If they flee or resist arrest, destroy the ship and tractor in the escape pod.
  • Monitor the system channel for spy and encrypted transmissions. Spy transmissions typically begin with “//” or contain the letters “lol”. See below for more information on how to handle spies.
  • Assist the Rheinland Military as needed.
  • Eliminate all Pirates, Coalition, Nomads, Outcasts, Red Hessians, Unioners and all other threats to system security.
  • Protect the citizens of Rheinland by offering assistance and other services

Laws & Fines

Polizei Regulations

  • 1. Any vessel in Rheinland is to be ordered to halt for scan before clearance.
  • 2. Military, Polizei, Civilian, and Freelancer pilot pods are to be dropped by the nearest available polizei officer or to be taken to the nearest station or planet. If the pilot of the ship refuses to drop the pods, destroy their ship.
  • 3. Any form of smuggling is forbidden and punishable. The following actions can be made against smugglers (exported fro Laws of Rheinland):

For the vessels of Fighter, Bomber or Freighter class – cargo confiscation and 1.000.000 SC fine.

For the vessels of Gunboat class or Transport class with 3500 units of contraband in the cargo hold or less - cargo confiscation and 2.500.000 SC fine.

For the vessels of Transport class with more than 3500 units of contraband in the cargo hold – cargo confiscation and 4.000.000 SC fine.

Exact list of contrabands and exceptions of these are listed in Laws of Rheinland.See Laws of Rheinland in „Links” section.

  • 4. Any form of piracy and/or coercion of the citizenry is forbidden and punishable by the destruction of the pirate ship.
  • 5. All sorts of Nomad materials are forbidden in Rheinland space. Ships carrying these materials are to be instructed to relinquish them for destruction or leave Rheinland territories. Should the captain of the ship chose to relinquish them and the items are mounted on the ship, they are allowed into orbital stations only--not planets--so the items may be removed on sealed docks for destruction. Failure to comply with this is punishable with ship destruction.
  • 6. Ship restrictions are to be enforced according to the accurate paragraphs of the Laws of Rheinland. For current restrictions, see Laws of Rheinland in „Links” section.
  • 7.Liberty Embargo Regulations:

Ageira, DSE, Synth, Foods and Orbital Spa and Cruise are allowed to haul the same goods within Rheinland. If carrying other goods, they will be ordered to drop them and to change course to Liberty space. Universal Shipping, as well as any other Liberty companies are banned from Rheinland space entirely.

Ships containing any other cargo are to be turned back home under penalty of death. Destroy their ship if they refuse to take the shortest route home with their cargo on board.

For further explanation of cargo regulations, see Laws of Rheinland.


  • 8. System-wide transmissions that are encrypted or containing sensitive information are the work of spies and traitors. These transmissions usually contain “//” or “lol”. For first offense, warn pilot that encrypted messages or messages of an inflammatory or subversive nature are not allowed in Rheinland space. If the spy continues to broadcast these messages, destroy the ship by any means necessary.
  • 9. Pilots displaying hostile activity are to be shot on sight with prior warning.
  • 10. Pilots of unknown and doubtful activity are to be requested to leave Rheinland. Those who fail to comply in a reasonable period of time will be shot on sight.
