The Commonwealth Armed Forces, formally the Armed Forces of the Crown of the Kingdom of Cheskgariya and the Grand Duchy of Litvania, are the national armed forces of the Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth. They consist of two elements - the Commonwealth Army and the Commonwealth Navy. The forces are unique in their lack of an air branch, an aspect deemed useless in a micronational theatre by its founders. They are commanded in an official sense by the crown, but in a practical sense by the Commonwealth General Staff. The current Chief of the General Staff is Frederick I, Grand Duke of Litvania.

Command structure

The Commonwealth Forces are commanded by the General Staff, an institution consisting of the most senior officers nominated by the head and confirmed by the crown. The General Staff is tasked with the continuous study of all aspects of intermicronational military operations, in order to ensure the up to date and continuous security of the Commonwealth. It currently has 3 members.

Army

The Army is the largest and most significant component of the Forces, in charge of protecting the Commonwealth's territorial claims from external or internal threats. The army is commanded by an appointed Field Marshal, a senior officer (most often a general) who has shown exceptional knowledge or skills of military operations, strategy, tactics, or organisation.

Navy

The Navy is the smaller, less significant component of the Forces, tasked with patrolling, surveying, and defending against maritime threats. It is commanded by an Admiral of the Navy, an appointed citizen or other functionary who possesses an interest in maritime sports, naval operations, or other related fields.
