At the top is Big Brother.

Next is the Inner Party -- about two percent of the whole population of Oceania.  They are the brain of the state.  This level has people of every race in it but it's pretty hard for anyone to move up into it from lower level.

The Outer Party must make up about thirteen percent of the population.  It is the "hands" of the state.  Some members of this level can make it up into the Inner Party.

No one who isn't born into the Party has any chance of getting in to it.  Anyone born a prole who has that kind of drive or ability generally stands out and gets killed by the Thought Police.
