The Senate, the upper house of the Legislative Assembly, alone has the power to make war, or declare the nation to be in a state of war, whereupon the elected President assumes the war-time role of commander-in-chief of the Templedom Attack Force.

Apart from the political forces at work, the T.A.F. itself has its own strong tradition and imperatives: it exists first and foremost to protect the Great Hall, the depository of the nation's proud religious and historical treasures and the seat of ecclesiastical power.

Members of the T.A.F. are not required to swear oaths but must be baptized.

Postby Nescala » Sun Mar 18, 2018 9:38 am

The military is divided into three distinct services, distinct from the three arms that exist within other nations' militaries.

Pasıă

The Pasıă, otherwise known as the militia, the militants, or, by some ignorant outsiders, the military, is the force that holds the vast majority of servicemen and women. Unlike the other two forces, the Pasıă swears loyalty to the idea of Nescala as a whole. That is why, if there is a threat to the territorial integrity, sovereignty or wellbeing of the nation of Nescala, the Pasıă is the first and foremost force on the scene. This does include humanitarian, disaster relief and even some social work, and so the Pasıă are a very popular force not just amongst those who wish to serve their country, but also those who wish to serve peacefully in another capacity. The Pasıă have been embroiled in some controversy in their harshness in dealing with defectors, secession movements (of which the most notable is the Ăfesıă secession movement to the south of Nescala, which, after the overthrow of dictator Yĕlĕces Monitu in 1974, has largely ceased to exist) and rioters. The Pasıă is headed by the Czašo Cayegu, or 'figurehead of the people', an ancient title which once stood for the representative of the Ŭțıĕtă, the ancient monarch of the Nescalan people, to the people themselves. It was transferred to a military rank, and is held in tandem with a Marshal, or Fıetă.

Ņoladă

The Ņoladă acts as the police force of the nation. Its loyalties lie entirely with the people of Nescala, and it swears loyalty to them directly. As such, Ņoladă members tend to have an even stronger humanitarian outlook than the Pasıă, and Ņoladă brutality is nearly unheard of. In some occasions, it has even acted as a protection force for the people of Nescala against the other two services, though these days are largely in the past. The Ņoladă comprise of social workers, detectives, humanitarians, a brute-force militant arm and other fairly compassionate people, though all of these somewhat disparate ideas come under the Ņoladă banner. The Ņoladă is headed by a Caĕfă, sometimes translated to 'chief', though their authority is limited, and the Ņoladă generally has free reign to act in a decentralised manner, though cooperation is enforced in matters of national security.

Xurtăfă

The Xurtăfă are the guards of the government. They have the lowest numbers of the three services, but are fiercely loyal to the governing systems of the Republic. Xurtăfă members are often brought up from the most loyal men and women in the Republic, and are often seen during government proceedings, wearing antique ceremonial uniforms. Some of the regiments take on a medieval or renaissance look, with steel helmets and armour, as well as felt robes, usually wearing furs or wool underneath, carrying halberds and pistols, while others seem to adopt a much more napoleonic look, with wool jackets, large rifles and shakos. All engage heavily in ceremonial parades and other special events, with the bright uniforms contrasting with the dulled uniforms of the other services. However, the Xurtăfă also possess a working uniform, still fairly fancy compared with the other services, but much more functional in a modern day setting.

Conserquences of the System

At the end of April 1954, the election season of Nescala finished, with a landslide victory for the extremely libertarian Cayegu party over their adversaries. This result was seen as a victory by many in the nation, with parades in the street celebrating the victory. However, the Pasıă, whether correctly or incorrectly, perceived the victory of Cayegu as a threat to the continued stability of Nescala. On June 5 1954, the Pasıă marched into the Government Complex with very little resistance from the Xurtăfă and arrested all members of the current administration, placing themselves as the ruling body of Nescala. They placed an influential general, Tĕllăs Măfŏra, as Leader, or Cšănară, of Nescala. Their first line of duty was implementing very authoritarian policies. However, the administration proved to be highly meritocratic, and before long, Răcelin Yerdici, a more hardline authoritarian, took the reigns of Nescala. During Yerdici's period as Cšănară, there were numerous street clashes with the populace resulting in more than a few deaths. The Ņoladă took their places as defenders of the people during this time, and often themselves clashed with the combined force of the Pasıă and the Xurtăfă. In 1958, Yerdici enacted a bill severely weakening the Ņoladă.

However, it was not too long that the Ņoladă began to chafe at the Pasıă rule. In December 1961, the Ņoladă, allied with some more libertarian elements within the Pasıă, declared a new government of the people in Moltară, the second largest city in Nescala (after the capital of Czeŗă). After twenty days of sparse fighting, the Ņoladă emerged victorious on 31st December 1961, ending with what became known as the New Year's Accords (Tur Aglu Sıețawă), resulting in the arrest of prominent members of the Pasıă government. Many in Nescala saw this as a victory for democracy and freedom. However, Misıetis Küllo, then-leader of the Ņoladă, unlike what was promised, did not relinquish power to a democratically elected government, instead ruling as effectively the dictator for six years. Unlike the rule of Răcelin Yerdici, however, Küllo expanded social services and jobs. As such, even though many freedoms were curtailed by Küllo's reign, many still consider him to be a champion of democracy to this day.

His rule was cut short, however. In 1968, possibly motivated by the release of Yĕlĕces Monitu, a prominent Pasıă partisan, the Pasıă yet again mobilised to take back the government. The Ņoladă government had never moved into the Government Complex, due to the prevailing view amongst the Ņoladă leadership that the Küllo dictatorship was simply a transitional period. As such, even without the support of the Xurtăfă, the Pasıă stormed the Ņoladă complex and round up the leadership. Instead of sending them for trial, Yĕlĕces Monitu personally ordered Misıetis Küllo to give one final order, making official the release of many Pasıă prisoners, before shooting Küllo and numerous others in the head. Notably, Monitu ensured that the order specifically excluded Răcelin Yerdici and Tĕllăs Măfŏra, amongst others, from being removed from custody.

Yĕlĕces Monitu quickly moved to take power in the capital, but by that point, news of Măfŏra's takeover had spread. Monitu's first address to the people of Nescala made official the dissolution of the Ņoladă. However, the provisional Caĕfă of the Ņoladă, Nadŏr Ziše, also moved quickly to discredit the new Pasıă government as little more than revolutionary upstarts, pretenders and murderers, and declared the current leadership of the Pasıă defunct. This caused a six-year civil war, between the Ņoladă, with their capital in Moltară, assisted by numerous Citizens' Militias (Cayegufă Pasıoŗ), and the Pasıă forces, ruling from the national capital of Czeŗă. By the end of the first year of the Civil War, a democratic secessionist movement, referring to themselves as Cayegišıo Ăfesıă, or the Republic of Afesia, also joined the conflict. Afesia had been angling for secession since the beginning of Misıetis Küllo's rule, and declared themselves, from their capital of Cžubrŏdă, to be independent. Pasıă forces changed notice from the Ņoladă towards the new Cayegišıo Ăfesıă, and instigated a number of brutal raids against the newly formed Ăfesıăn People's Army (Ăfesıu Cayegufă Lexă). While the Ņoladă were able to hold off Pasıă attack, Cayegišıo Ăfesıă fell to Pasıă forces by the end of 1971. Pasıă turned their attention back to Ņoladă.

Fighting became intense, with many different battles raging throughout the Nescalan countryside and in cities. Yĕlĕces Monitu instituted a number of authoritarian policies, which led to widespread repressions. However, while fighting was still raging in 1974, the Xurtăfă declared their own counter-coup, and, with their knowledge of the Government Complex, managed to neutralise the Pasıă forces and take Yĕlĕces Monitu prisoner. Using a combination of high-ranking Ņoladă prisoners and Pasıă communication equipment, the Xurtăfă successfully called a ceasefire and called both factions, as well as the now almost defunct Cayegišıo Ăfesıă, to the largely neutral city of Ottină-ficsă to negotiate terms. When all factions arrived, the leadership of all three factions were placed in Xurtăfă custody, and trials were arranged for all of them.

The Xurtăfă-controlled trial found the leadership of both the Pasıă and the Ņoladă to be guilty of war crimes, murder (owing to the Xurtăfă insistence that the war was not valid), abandoning post (owing to both parties' disavowing their core aims and failing to protect both the nation of Nescala and her people) and treason. For extreme abuses of human rights, five members of the Pasıă, including Yĕlĕces Monitu, and one member of the Ņoladă were sentenced to death, and were executed at midnight on September 14. All other high ranking members of both organisations, including Nadŏr Ziše, were stripped of their membership to both organisations and imprisoned. Many of the members of these organisations were later released as both new evidence of innocence and some placed on parole for good behaviour. As for Cayegišıo Ăfesıă, since they acted largely in self-defence, and were deemed by the Xurtăfă to have acted in the interests of a democratic Nescala, they were fined a total of NP3,000,000 (much was paid by the millionaire financier of the Cayegišıo Ăfesıă, Tollos Mădŏfa) and new laws were passed to make secession punishable by much stronger sentences.

However, despite their intention to declare a transitional government in order to reform both the Pasıă and the Ņoladă to a more useful state, the Xurtăfă declared their Captain, Mikon Nülară, as the ruler of Nescala. All in all, Nülară's reign was fairly successful. He is largely to credit for the recent industrialisation and prosperity of the Nescalan nation, and he expanded many useful social services. Though he was remembered as rather a classist, looking down on the lower classes, he was remembered as a fairly decent leader, with his detriments and victories mostly evening out to present a rounded reign. After his death in 1988, democracy was restored, and the organisations have remained at peace, sometimes even in cooperation, since that point. However, those years of civil strife and coups just remind the Nescalan people that sometimes a military system with three separate loyalties can be dangerous. The three loyalties still exist, and it is simply to be hoped that nothing like this ever occurs again.

Like civil servants, military officials are constitutionally-bound to take the Phrygian Oath. The Phrygian Oath provides that the person:
  • Respect the core principles of democracy and democratic liberty (Principia Democratica).
  • Uphold the text and spirit of the body of the Constitution (Corpus Constitutionis).
  • Respect and defend the dignity and majesty of the nation, the government, and people (Majestas Populi).

The oaths provides that those obligations be given in that order, each in order of precedence.
The Republic of Serrono (Seronan: Hermu Seronid) is a federation of ten provinces (hermisa), two federal municipalities (faüx), two regions (herutte), and one autonomous federation (pe foëpta). It has a population of 15 million. Its official language is Serronan.

The Ktathrian military swears allegiance to our head of state, The Empress. She is the commander in chief and it is written into our constitution that no member of the military can be disciplined for following an order of the Empress, no matter what that order may be.

The only exception to this is that our Rangers (our environmental police, though officially classed as one of the armed forces) swear allegiance to the Empire. Since their function is to protect the natural environment, they are not technically commanded by The Empress (though She does appoint their commander).

Most of our military is mindless, and controlled through magic. Another sizable chunk is feral; they too are controlled by magic. There's also the vampiric thralls; they too are controlled through magic, and their loyalty is exclusive to Mukuro Sadoko.

The remaining sentient undead swear loyalty to the goddess Daemusari first, and the Mukuro sisters second.
The Mukuro Clan is not representative of my, nor anyone else's views.

Just two sisters, an ancient ghost, and a supernatural army against the world. NS Stats not used; they are killed and reanimated instead.

Everyone in the military, swears absolute loyalty to the dictator-warlord. This is technically a religious oath because the current dictator is destined to join the gods of the nation's dominant religion as a guardian of the nation, but actual worship is optional outside of the proper veneration necessary when speaking to them as other religions are allowed despite the gods being proven real and seen multiple times.

Previously, the Lysborger military and police would swear an oath to God, the King/Queen and the people. This worked well until Vanita the Evil (our last queen) married the king and killed him, starting a 5-year reign of terror.

After Vanita's stepdaughter, Princess Natalya finally got rid of the evil queen, she made the military swear an oath of personal loyalty to her, and her alone. Some of the soldiers refused to swear loyalty to the princess and stayed loyal to Vanita. Natalya quickly ordered them to be discharged and executed for treason.
