The Office of Perception, Protection and Guidance (P.P.G., or PPG) was a government organization that promoted American propaganda, while simultaneously censoring any information regarding the true nature of the "European Influenza" and safeguarding government secrets.
In May 1950, the PPG practically censored all public and outside knowledge about the Chimera, their invasion out of Russia, and the subsequent war in Europe through supplanting false news about a European influenza epidemic. This quickly became accepted by the American population, and the PPG subversively replaced all American independent media with government propaganda. The PPG also curtailed and suppressed any bias information towards the government by dissidents, most notably the Alliance for American Autonomy.
- The P.P.G. shares some parallels to real-life, historical American propaganda promoting agencies such as the Committee on Public Information and the United States Office of War Information, which were created in World War I and World War II respectively.
