The Istrian Royal Armed Forces are formed by three sets of arms: the Terrestrial Armed Force, the Navy and the Air Force. They are under the jurisdiction of the National Major State, directly subordinated to the Ministry of National Defence. In war times, the Monarch is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
The Ministry of National Defence is spending on researching and evolutioning the techniques of war even though Istria is a member of the Halcyon Convention, that defines the microwars.
Recent operations include anti-terrorist prevention measures, anti-pyro attacks, honorific presence at the military ceremonies.
In the time of Her Majesties government the first armed forces was the National Guard. This was supposed to protect at all cost Her Majesty and her family. Later the Beletristic 1st Army appeared. This army was the first terrestrial force of the Kingdom. Other important armies that appeared are the Waters Guard(Guarda Acquale) and The Skies Guard(Guarda del Aero). The city of Garda is the most important city from that point of view, most of the army being centered there and having much influence in the Vacaresti Region.
The Military was reformed after the fall of the Dristorian Empire to maintain the integrity of the nation. This included terrestrial, navy and air force but wasn't consolidated until 2012. Garda and Vacaresti remain the most important cities from the military point of view.
The structure of the Armed Forces of Istria includes the Armed Forces themselves and also the Secret Service that does confidential investigations on suspicious state activity.
The State bodies responsible for the Armed Forces are:
- HM Queen Maríe I
- Dave Norton (Minister of National Defence)
