His Majesty's Armed Forces, commonly known as the Florenian Armed Forces, are the military forces of the Kingdom of Florenia. The Florenian Armed Forces are comprised of Florenia's two uniformed services: the Royal Army and Royal Navy. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces is the Monarch, King Eran, who is represented in his duties by the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense.

The Armed Forces are tasked with the defense of the Kingdom and all troop formations of the uniformed services. The Royal Army, which is responsible for defense by land, and the Royal Navy, which is responsible for marine defense, work hand in hand to exercise their duties. Due to the fact that the Royal Army is the only branch with actual manpower, the Royal Army is currently responsible for the maintenance and operation of the Navy's fleet. The fleet, launched on Floren Pond, which comprises most of the Kingdom's territory, consists of two vessels; one canoe and one kayak. The ideal manpower for the fleet is three individuals. However, the fleet can hold, at its maximum capacity, up to five individuals. It patrols the pond and Florenia's borders that lay along its coast, as well as the Princes Islands.

The Ministry of Defense is responsible for the upkeep and management of the Armed Forces. The Minister of Defense is appointed by the Prime Minister and, as a government minister, is a member of the Cabinet of Florenia. The Royal Army and Navy were founded by subsequent Acts of Parliament on 31 December 2011 and 1 January 2012. The Ministry of Defense had its position of leadership outlined and solidified in the Ministry of Defense Act 2012, which received royal assent on 11 August 2012. On 22 July 2014, the Military Organization and Commissions Act 2014 was passed, which granted virtual independence from Parliament to the Armed Forces with regards to day-to-day management, policy, and operations.
