MILITARY OF ADAMMIA
Arguably the oldest official organisation in the Empire of Adammia, the Military has existed since the 21st of April 2013, created to secure Tytannia Province during the first week of the Empire's existence. Today, the armed forces have grown to include 19 servicemen, spread over the Adammic Army, Adammic Navy and Adammic Air Force.
The overall commander of the Military is the Monarch, bearing the title of Grand Marshal. This of course means that HIM Emperor Adam I currently has complete control over the Military.
The Military is always looking for new recruits. In practice, the Military acts as a pool of volunteers who the government can call upon for a wide range of functions - the chances of being involved in a combat situation are extremely slim. Although military service is considered more of an active role than simply being a citizen, anything we may ask our volunteers to do is of course optional. Citizens can apply to enlist in the Military here.

The first time a unit was involved in an official battle was the Western Regiment on the 5th of May 2013, in what is referred to as the Skirmish of Tytannia. During this short, half-hearted engagement, a rogue young citizen damaged an army weapon, prompting a response on the part of the army.
Mixed forces from the former Special Operations unit, the Primoria Battalion and what was at one point the 2nd Infantry Regiment took part in the Skirmish of Astley Meadow on the 23rd of January 2014 in which they fought off an attack by a British insurgent known as Luke against the Emperor.
