The People's National Liberation Army (PNLA), commonly known either as the People's Army or the Liberation Army, is the unified armed force and sole legal military organisation in the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia. Unlike most unified armed forces, both of its divisions are land-based. Established officially on August 30th 2009, the PNLA is the successor to the People's National Guard for the Defence of the Revolution and the Proletarian People of Erusia, the paramilitary branch of the ruling Erusian National Communist Party that was outlawed by the Supreme People's Court for being unconstitutional.
Although the Liberation Army is nominally independent of the Communist Party and falls under the de jure ultimate authority of the Standing Committee of the National People's Assembly and the National People's Executive Commission for State Defence, in reality the Party maintains tight de facto control of the Army by ensuring all of its senior commanders - and most if not all of its personnel - are members of the ENCP. As such, the People's Army falls under the jurisdiction of the Communist Party's Central Military Commission.
