Military of Sabia and Verona
The military of Sabia and Verona is organized into a single land force known as the National Guard (dogasennañ, in Sabian). The National Guard was created in June 2017 as a merger between the Royal Aeronaval Service and the Royal Auror Corps. The National Guard is under civilian control, with the King as Commander-in-Chief. The Secretary of Defence, a government minister (currently Noa Dargany), oversees the Guard's operations. The professional head of the Guard is the Head Captain, who answers to the Defence Secretary.

The first military branch created in Sabia and Verona was the People's Land Army, formed in 2012 following a failed revolt in the then-young nation. The People's Navy and the People's Air Force followed after. The Land Army was abolished in 2015, while the Navy and the Air Force were merged into the Royal Aeronaval Service in 2016. The Royal Auror Corps, the national police force, was part of the military from 2015 to 2017.
The National Guard has historically used a penal conscription system, in which inmates are recluted for certain tasks in the military. It does not have nuclear, chemical or biological warfare capability. It has not established any partnerships with other regional or national military powers as of yet.
Before the creation of the SVRAF, Sabia and Verona was under protection of the Royal Army of Juclandia by law, although the Juclandian armed force never set foot in Sabioveronese soil.
The Royal Armed Forces were officially created as the Sabioveronese Regional Armed Forces through two different Legislative Bills, bill #027 of February 2013 and bill #033 of April 2013, both uniting the already existing Gendarmerie, created when Sabia and Verona was proclaimed a Juclandian overseas territory in October 2012 and the People's Regional Land Army, created by King Ciprian of Juclandia in December 2012. As well, the bill #029 that created the People's Navy is considered part of the foundation of the SVRAF. The Armed Forces of Sabia and Verona were to serve and protect the Sabioveronese people in times of peace and truce and defend the regional territory and integrity in times of war and conflict.
In March 2012, Prime Minister Osez Kóvérsz commissioned the creation of 9 ships that would become the People's Navy. By April, 2012 the People's Navy of Sabia and Verona counted with over 20 ships, with Noa Dargany as Admiral of the Navy. Later that same month another commission, this time from the Legislative Courts would mandate the creation of the People's Air Force and the elaboration of at least 15 aircraft. The aircraft created initially all were Weinstein models, but soon a Sabioveronese manufacturer, Starlynn would design its own planes that were adopted by the Air Force.
When Sabia and Verona became province of the Federal Union of Juclandian Lands, the Regional Armed Forces became the Royal Armed Forces and swore loyalty to the new Sabioveronese monarch, Isadora of Annenak. On 26 March 2014, Queen Isadora approved the renaming of the Royal Gendarmerie to the Royal Auror Corps.
