History

The Defense Division (Sabian: sennañitrañ) is one of the divisions (ministries) that make up the government of Sabia and Verona. It is considered one of the most important ministerial agencies in the Sabioveronese government, as it is in charge of overseeing the Kingdom's military, as well as the National Intelligence Service (DST), Sabia and Verona's foreign and domestic intelligence agency.

The Defense Division was originally founded as the Ministry for Defense on 1 July 2013; the first Minister for Defense was General Boris Tovinski, who served in Napoléon Bleuberrie's second government. Bleuberrie formed the Ministry to oversee the national military, at the time composed of several branches.

The Defense Division has been one of the few ministerial agencies that have remained unchanged since its establishment; every single cabinet since the second Bleuberrie government has had a defense minister or secretary. Among its chief responibilities are the protection of Sabia and Verona's sovereignty, its territorial integrity and its people, and the enforcement of the law. Since the National Guard acts both as the Kingdom's only armed group, it shares the responsibilities of both a military and civic force, and thus law enforcement is part of the Defense Division's portfolio; tasks pertaining to civic protection and the rule of law are usually enforced jointly with the Justice Division.

Since 2018, the Secretary of Defense has been Harmê Betram de Asra, who serves in the 11th government under Andrew Blackhorse. Bertram de Asra previously served as Defense Secretary in the 8th government.
