The Marshal of the Republic is the highest rank in the Roscamistan Army and is only given to the most experienced military officers. The rank was bestowed by Adam Flannery to Andrew Brotherton on 13 November 2021 as he fitted the requirements and is equivalent to a five-star general in the United States and a Field Marshal in the United Kingdom.

Origin

The rank was created when Adam Flannery was continuing his reforms of the Roscamistan Defence Forces in late 2021. He began to create a draft of ranks, which at first was rejected by President Andrew Brotherton. Eventually with Brotherton’s help, Flannery devised a system of ranks similar to the United Kingdom’s armed forces.

Originally the rank of Marshal of the Republic was meant to be a six-star rank, with it being higher than a proposed five-star rank of Field Marshal. Flannery eliminated the rank of Field Marshal, and proposed to make the rank of Marshal of the Republic an honourary one. President Brotherton then made the rank an active one rather than honourary.

Duties

A Marshal of the Republic can command a maximum of half of the active army soldiers and a minimum of a quarter of the active army. They also hold precedence over all other military officers other than the Chief of the Defence Staff and the Commander in Chief (though if they are the Commander in Chief they hold precedence over all, regardless of rank.)

Requirements

The position is one of a few officers that cannot be appointed at the will of the Commander-in-Chief, the person who wishes to be promoted as to follow a set of requirements, which are:

  • Must be a full General to be promoted.
  • Must have been engaged in 3 battles or wars at least.
  • Be of the Catholic faith as required by the constitution (Can be overridden by the President when promoting a non-Catholic Christian when it is deemed necessary).
  • Not be in any hostile militaries.
  • Not be a marshal in any other hostile militaries.

On 9 March 2022 it was announced by President Andrew Brotherton that the requirement to not be in any other paramilitaries other than the Roscam Liberation Front was to be abolished, and all future paramilitaries to forcibly to incorporated into the Roscamistan Defence Forces.
