Non-official Cover
In espionage, agents under non-official cover (NOC) are operatives who assume covert roles in organizations without official ties to the government for which they work. Such agents or operatives are typically abbreviated in espionage lingo as a NOC (pronounced /nɒk/ NOK).[1] These agents are also known as "illegals" (see Clandestine HUMINT operational techniques). Non-official cover is contrasted with official cover, where an agent assumes a position at an otherwise benign department of their government, such as the diplomatic service. This provides the agent with official diplomatic immunity, thus protecting them if their espionage activities are discovered. Agents under non-official cover do not have this "safety net", and if captured or charged they are subject to severe criminal punishments, up to and including execution

Puppet State
A puppet state is a state that is supposedly independent but is in fact dependent upon an outside power.[1] It is nominally sovereign but effectively controlled by a foreign or otherwise alien power, for reasons such as financial interests.[2] A puppet state preserves the external paraphernalia of independence like a name, flag, anthem, constitution, law codes and motto but in reality is an organ of another state which created or sponsored the government.[3] Puppet states are not recognized as legitimate under international law.[4]Contents1 Etymology of the term 2 19th century 3 World War I3.1 Republics of Soviet Russia/Soviet Union3.1.1 Non-realized republics of Soviet Russia4 Imperial Japan4.1 Nominally sovereign states 4.2 Unrealized drafts for dependent states5
