The Authority is a highly organized and weaponized military force that controls and shapes the Wasteland how they see fit. Unlike the mutants and bandits that wander the Wasteland of RAGE Earth, the Authority knows what it's doing. They use personal energy shields, recharging stations that refill their energy meters, and utilize cover and tactics. Led by General Martin Cross, also known as the Visionary, the Authority's main purpose is to restore order to the world by any means necessary, including killing unmutated humans. The Authority seems to have an prejudice against Ark Survivors, ruthlessly seeking them out wherever they are found and taking them back to Capital Prime because all Ark Survivors have had Nanotrites implanted before going into deep cryo hibernation. They joined the Axis of Empires and the Imperialist alliance.
