|Department of the New Pacific Order|
|Education of new recruits on what it means to be a Pacifican; answering of any questions and doubts recruits may have with the Order.|
The Imperial Academy of the New Pacific Order was is institution which oversees the questioning and induction of new recruits, who help them study everything that has to do with the Order, from Francoism to our Emperor Lord of Darkness. When recruits feel ready they then take the exam, which would put everything they had learned to the test. The Academy will then grade the exams, and those who pass are welcomed as full members into the Order.
At present time the Imperial Academy forms part of Internal Affairs.
Third Imperial Academy
With the integration of Academy into a new Internal Affairs structure, the department was initially overseen by a Commissar position. The position was not retained for very long before the new, current Academy ranks were insinuated.
After the merger of several internal affairs departments to form a new Internal Affairs super department, the structure was not retained and instead the older ranks and positions were replaced with more specialized leadership positions, with the introduction of the new Master and Guru positions for the Academy.
Second Imperial Academy
Following the re-establishment of the Imperial Academy, the position of Provost was introduced, replacing the old Schoolmaster.
The Imperial Academy was reformed on May 5, 2013 with an announcement by Imperial Officer Angelus Beck. The Academy was lead by a Provost rather than a School Master, with Prodigy being the first appointment. The Academy ran as an independent department until February 6, 2014 when Imperial Officer Qazzian announced it was being merged with other various Internal Affairs departments, to form a new department.
First Imperial Academy
The original incarnation of the Imperial Academy covered a broader range of duties. The Academy Staff were the gatekeepers of the Order and were responsible for running the NPO's application process as well as educating new members with the exam.
During the application process, Instructors, Professors and other staff would ask the applicants questions pertaining to their alliance history, current aid, wars, and other questions relating to their time in Cybernations.
This ended when, on November 5, 2012 the responsibility of processing applications was transferred to the Praetorian Guard in an effort to reduce overlap and streamline procedures. Two months after Lord of Darkness announced the end of the Imperial Academy, the department was fully closed and its remaining duties were split between other departments.
