The Internal Intelligence Institute (Spanish: Instituto de Inteligencia Interna) is the domestic intelligence and security service of the Union of Altivebrio. It split from the Servicio Nacional de Inteligencia in 1978, and it's main responsibilities include internal and border security, providing state security, counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency, internal surveillance as well as jurisdiction over federal and high-profile crimes.
It's headquarters, the Vincente Inspezzio Building is located in Norfillo Street, Nuevo Seville, which was damaged during the War in Central America and subsequently destroyed by the Alconbrian Armed Forces in 2014.
Former President Miguel de Odeo created the Servicio Nacional de Inteligencia in 1926 to improvise foreign intelligence and internal security during, after the Altivebrian hollow victory in the Gorel War of 1925. Beginning from the 1930s, the SNI began engageing in counter-terrorism and covert operations, and it became the agency's main focus, as a result the internal security division was severely under-funded.
In 1972, the SNI failed to prevent the kidnapping of Vice-President and Miguel de Odeo's daughter Delphia de Odeo y Guardiola; who was subsequently killed by the Organizo de Liveri Egaleco in the same year, triggering a national outrage and criticisms on the effectiveness of the SNI. Subsequently, the SNI assassinated a key OLE weapons supplier in Morocco, but the public weren't happy, and President Joseph Vantorres de Claus received pressure from both the public and his aides to split the SNI thereby creating a separate internal intelligence service. In turn, he created the National Security Council. de Claus wanted the newly-created agency to only report to the President, military officers and ministers charged with economy, defense and industries, but the Security Council rejected that, saying that they wanted a say in internal security matters. Joint discussions failed, and President de Claus was unable to create the agency and his term ended.
Newly elected President Emiliano Vincento Huizar prioritized the creation of the state intelligence agency, but had similar views as his predecessor, which delayed the creation. Eventually, it was decided that the SNI would report directly to the Cuadro Nacional, while the III would report to the National Security Council, of which the Vice President of Altivebrio would also be a part. Eventually, the III was created on March 2, 1978. Over 1000 SNI agents and secret police servicemen and veterans were called to work in the newly formed agency. It's first Director, Juan Camiloso was an executive SNI officer from 1957 till 1975.
Most of the administration is done by the Office of the Director, of which the Director and the Deputy Director is a member. The Office is divided into several other branches, managed by an executive Assistant Director. Each branch is then divided into offices and divisions, each headed by an assistant director. The various divisions are further divided into sub-branches, led by deputy assistant directors. Within these sub-branches there are various sections headed by section chiefs. Section chiefs are ranked analogous to special agents in charge.

The III's Operation Rojo began on 1986, and lasted till the end of the war in 2008, being one of the longest internal military operations in the world. The operation aimed at destroying military convoys supplying the Military of Alconbria with weapons, ammunition, grenades, explosives and food supplies.
According to a statement by the III in 2000, supplies worth over $2 billion were destroyed in the period of 1996-2000 alone, and it severely weakened the ALC. However, beginning from the 2002, when the Alconbria effectively to organize itself as a country, and due to Altivebrio's massive territory losses, the operation began to decline but it sill carried on, even well after the signing of the Gvonn Pact.
The last recorded instance of the III destroying Alconbrian military equipment was on 2 January, 2008, where it destroyed newly-arrived supplies of training helicopters and aircraft spare parts.
