History Skirmish of Tytannia
Astley Meadow Insurgency

The Military of Adammia is an armed force responsible for protecting the Empire of Adammia and asserting its claims. It is comprised of the Adammic Army, the Adammic Navy and the Adammic Air Force. It is managed by the Ministry of Defence. The military became prominent in Adammia when it took part in the Astley Meadow Insurgency, however, participation in conflicts is considered an extremely rare activity. The military generally focuses on ceremonial functions, training, and assisting with civilian projects. The military is fairly large by micronational standards, with 17 servicemen, most of whom are in the Army.

History

The Military of Adammia was originally created by Emperor Adam I on 21 April 2013 with Decree I. When it was first founded, its only branch was the Adammic Army. It very quickly reached three recruits in the Army. On 5 May 2013, the Army was involved in the Skirmish of Tytannia (an ultimately inconsequential event). After this, the Military fell into inactivity for several months until the Emperor revisited it on 6 August 2013 with Decree XI, which reformed the internal procedures, and also created the Adammic Navy and Air Force.

October 2013 saw the arrival of the first Air Force unit, the 1st Paper Air Group. In January 2014, there was a surge in recruitment levels to the Army. The military was mobilised around this time when the Jagstonian Plains and Astley Meadow were claimed by the Empire, followed by the Astley Meadow Insurgency, the only notable conflict that the military has taken part in to date.

Though the armed forces still grew with the addition of troops from Borealia forming a new 2nd Infantry Division in July 2014 (at which point the size of the armed forces peaked at 16 members), the military remained largely inactive throughout the rest of the year. Whilst the Air Force was given its own remote-controlled quadcopter by the Ministry of Defence in November 2014, the Army faced drastic cuts, with almost half of its troops being fired, due to the fact that they were no longer needed as the Astley Meadow Insurgency had ended and communication between them and High Command was proving difficult.

The military sat largely dormant for much of 2015, although a couple of new recruits were obtained throughout the year, including Commodore Sir Dan Pettinger who helped set up the Air Force headquarters at AAF Dearneland and became the Air Force chief-of-staff. The Emperor and his military advisor, General Sir Will McCracken, focused on improving the military's structure in order to prepare for future recruitment drives. This resulted in the Defence Act 2015, which formally established the roles of the Ministry of Defence and the Military High Command. The Defence Act was intended to be accompanied by a Military General Manual, which set out further procedures for the internal management of the military; however, this document was delayed, and was eventually published in September 2016.

In 2016, new recruits were obtained when El Grandens and Kappania joined the Empire, but this was offset by the loss several months later of Borealia following the Borealian Independence Referendum. The claiming of Alluria led to another increase in troop numbers in late 2016 and early 2017, and the size of the military surpassed its 2014 record, reaching 17, when Pererria joined the Empire in June 2017.

Structure

The Military is led by the Grand Marshal, who is automatically the Monarch. The Adammic Army is led by the Field Marshal, the Adammic Navy is led by the Grand Admiral, and the Air Force is led by the Air Chief Marshal. All of these postions are currently occupied by the Emperor.

The Military is controlled by the Ministry of Defence. The MoD sets general defence policy, can procure equipment, owns the military bases located in Adammic provinces, can create sub-units of any of the branches of the Military, and controls the mobilisation status of those units.

High Command

High Command is the headquarters of the Military, responsible for implementing the defence policies set by the Ministry of Defence and planning operations from a military (as opposed to government) perspective. Under the Defence Act 2015, it by default consists of the Grand Marshal, the head of each branch, all Generals, Admirals and Air Marshals, and any other staff the Grand Marshal sees fit to appoint. These extra staff currently include the Chief of Staff of each branch, and all Colonels, Vice Admirals and Air Commodores. High Command currently operates on Facebook Messenger.

Current composition of High Command:
