The government is totalitarian group of men known as the inner party. O'Brien his high up in the inner party. The inner party holds ultimate power over the outer party and the proles. My guess is that BB doesn't exist, or if he did, he died a long time ago. BB is really just a figurehead, an image for the people to fear, love and worship. He remains an enigma to the people so they have something simple to hang on to. BB is a symbol for the party to exact perpetual control over the people.
