The Spy Expat: Your friends think you work in diplomatic circles, but really they're not sure what you do. Austria has been called a "paradise" for spies and 7,000 secret agents are believed to be active in Vienna alone. Spying is only punishable by law here if it is aimed directly at Austria. But it's perfectly legal to spy on other foreign states. Spies, like other expats here, enjoy the quality of life Austria offers, and we've heard that some find it hard to leave.
