Well, the state CAN exhibit control of all outside links since these tend to be done by trunk lines that usually have to go through them to approve. If there are few ways in or out, just like IRL, it's easier to guard them. I think that's how China keeps its Great Firewall working. Also, with fewer sanctioned passages, it becomes easier to investigate "holes".
