* In his United Planet series, Creator/Mack Reynolds gives us Section G of the Department of Interplanetary Justice, Commissariat of Interplanetary Affairs. Spying, covert destabilization of stagnant cultures, and pushing human advancement are among their less 'official' activities. Officially, they're about peace and interplanetary relations.

** And now the ComicBook/{{New 52}} has given us Spyral. We don't know terribly much about them. Their agents have technology that makes their faces impossible to perceive, they use a finishing school to train attractive female agents, and they have a disturbing number of double agents.

* ComicBook/QueenAndCountry started out referring to British domestic intelligence as "Five" (like TheSandbaggers does,) but Creator/GregRucka was embarrassed to discover that most people nowadays [[ShownTheirWork refer to the agency as "Box"]], a nickname derived from the agency's official address, a [=PO=] Box. He promptly corrected the error in the rest of the series.

* ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'' has The Laundry, the UK's EldritchAbomination response team in Creator/CharlesStross novels--supposedly the last surviving section of the defunct real-world [[SoE Special Operations Executive]]. Also their American counterparts, the Black Chamber (for history nerds: the original version of the NSA). In ''The Apocalypse Codex'', they're jokingly referred to as the [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Nazgûl]], and ''perhaps'' officially known as the Operational Phenomenology Agency. Their German counterparts are the Geheime Sicherheit Abteilung (Secret Security Department, also known as the "Faust Force").
