The Delveran Armed Services, or DAS, are the uniformed armed defense and disaster relief forces of the Grand Republic of Delvera. The DAS are controlled by Delveran High Command and governed by the Delveran Military Regulations. They include the Grand Republican Army (GRA), Grand Republican Navy (GRN), and Grand Republican Air Force (GRAF), though because of lack of personnel and equipment, the latter two have never been formally established.

Regulations

The DAS are governed by the Delveran Military Regulations, descendants of the Lavrasian Military Regulations first codified in 2012. These statutes govern all aspects of the military, from uniforms to organizational structure to code of conduct.

Leadership

Delveran High Command oversees all administrative and operational procedures of the DAS. High Command is composed of the Supreme Commander and Adjutant Supreme Commander, Chiefs of Staff and Adjutants Chief of all service branches, and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers of all service branches, the Commandants of all Provincial Militias, as well as any other service member(s) the Supreme Commander deems appropriate.

The Supreme Commander is appointed by the First Consul and confirmed by the Council of Governors. The Adjutant Supreme Commander is chosen by the Supreme Commander. The other members of High Command are determined solely on the basis of rank. Thus far, the Supreme Commander and Adjutant Supreme Commander have always been the two highest ranking officers in the DAS.

Training

Unlike many micronational militaries, the DAS conduct regular military training exercises and maintain equipment, weapons, and fortifications for the purpose of actual physical defense in the event of war with another micronation. Several DAS personnel have received external education in military tactics, survival skills, and disaster relief, which they attempt to pass on to other service members. Macronational military books and texts are also consulted in training.

Active duty officers of the Grand Republic are required by regulation to attend and graduate from the Lavrasian Military Academy before receiving their commissions. However, the Academy has never been formally established, though no new officers have been needed since 2013, making the program unnecessary in the Grand Republic as of yet. A basic outline of graduation requirements and a logo were developed in 2012 by David Sarkozy, who hopes to one day open the Academy.

Armament

The DAS maintain a large arsenal of airsoft weaponry for the purpose of training and possible micronational war. Primary armories are located in the Province of Lavrasia, the Territory of Zancudo, and the District of Neosho. The weapons and supplies within are continuously upgraded and replaced by service members, ensuring readiness in an emergency.

Symbols

Standard Unit Patch

The DAS is represented by the Gadsden Banner, a historic American Revolution flag and a symbol of civil rights activists in the United States. The banner was chosen because of its vibrant color and defiant message to potential adversaries. The standard DAS uniform patch was chosen for its connection to the flag through the symbol of the snake, and also for its likewise vibrant coloration.

The "Delveran Military Anthem" and "Salute to the Grand Republic March" are official songs of the DAS, as stated by regulation.

Trivia

  • The only operational branch of the DAS is the Grand Republican Army (GRA).
  • Though the primary focus of the DAS is defensive warfare, it can also be mobilized to aid in disaster relief.
