'''BND''' is an acronym for '''B'''undes'''n'''achrichten'''d'''ienst (Federal Information/Intelligence Service).
It is the foreign secret service of the Allied German States. Its HQ is in Pullach near Munich, Bavaria.
During the secession of the South German League (2038 - 2044) the BND was effectively crippled by being unable to decide whether to be loyal to the German government or the Bavarian.
Today the BND closely works with ARGUS.
