Control is composed of practiced members of the military, diplomatic, intelligence or economic branches of government (not necessarily U.S.), as well as faculty members from the Korbel School and beyond. Control members approve or reject teams' actions in response to each move, inject or the actions of other states.
In addition, control applies consequences to the teams' decisions. For example, if South Korea says that it has opened fire on North Korea, control can respond with the number of people who are wounded or were killed.
Control also will ensure each state's actions and reactions are within the realm of possibility for that state. For example, North Korea cannot democratize and ally with the United States; that would not happen. NOTE: Teams can only request information from their specific control.
