The Minister of Political Education was in charge of Barrayar's secret police during the reigns of Emperors Yuri Vorbarra the Mad and Ezar Vorbarra. This Ministry was notorious for abuses of power, like the Solstice Massacre, especially under Grishnov. The position and the ministry were abolished when Aral Vorkosigan became Regent of Barrayar.

Barrayaran military ships generally included political officers, whose job appeared to be primarily to spy on the people on the ships.
