The Ministry of Defence, often abbreviated to MoD or Defence Ministry, is one of the crucial government ministries in the Cabinet of Essexia. It has existed as an official ministry in recorded history since the 1st January 2019, however it is likely to have existed prior to this. The Ministry, and its respective ministers, have been controversial in Essexia, due almost entirely to the power it holds to declare martial law- a prerogative held since 2019 and exercised twice.

The incumbent Minister of Defence, who in charge of organising and funding the armed forces, is Lord Jack.

List of Junior Departments

The Ministerial Reform Act established a number of Junior Ministries under the Defence Ministry, in order to cope for the Essexian Armed Forces' broad responsibilities and logistical networks. These are:

  • Department of Logistics
  • Department of Defence Research
  • Department of Training

The Department of Logistics is responsible for the acquisition, management and movement of equipment within the Armed Forces.

The Department of Defence Research handles the research and development of new defence technologies. It is headed by Ben H (Essexia), who is considered one of Essexia's most proficient technophiles.

The Department of Training manages the enrolment of individuals into the Armed Forces, as well as the teaching and training of defence personnel.
