The Imperial Armed Forces of Millania and New Granada is the National Military Force of Millania. The Emperor of Millania is the military's commander in chief, and helps formulate defence policy through the Ministry of Homeland Security, which is in charge of day-to-day operations. The Armed Forces consists of the Imperial Army of Millania, Imperial Navy of Millania, Imperial Aviation Force of Millania, and the notable sub branches of the Imperial Guard of Millania, Millanian Maritime Aviation Squadron, and the Millanian Naval Infantry Force. Although the National Police Force of Millania is technically not part of the military, it is controlled and administered by the Ministry of Homeland Security, and has a highly militarized structure not found in most of the world's law enforcement agencies, such as a distinction between enlisted and officer ranks. The Imperial Armed Forces is known for its service in the Granadine-Cornosian Wars. In peacetime, the Armed Forces are mainly used for the internal defense, police, and border security force of Millania.

Army

The Imperial Army of Millania (Spanish: Ejército Imperial de Millánia) is the land military force of Millania and the largest and oldest service branch of the Armed Forces of Millania. It is responsible for carrying out land-based military operations along with the Millanian Naval Infantry Militia (Infanteria de Marina) and for protecting the Millanian Empire against domestic or foreign threats.

The modern Millanian Army has its roots in the Millanian Common Armed Militia (Ejército de los Comuneros), which was formed on 16 October 2017 – before the establishment of the present day Millania – to defend the provisional government at the time. After the Millanian Declaration of Independence, Emperor Santiago Ramá I created the Greater Granadine Army, to replace the disbanded Common Militia.

Navy

The Millanian Navy, officially the Millanian Imperial Navy (Spanish: Armada Imperial de los Reinos Unidas de Millánia y Nueva Granada), also known as the "Armada", is the naval branch of the Armed Forces of Millania. The Navy is responsible for protecting Millania and its interests in its rivers, lakes, and seas (as well as a few small land areas under the Navy's direct jurisdiction) by means of naval force.

The Millanian Navy has a strength of 3 personnel as of October 2018.

Naval Infantry

The Millanian Naval Infantry Force is a force that not only serves alongside the Army to defend the land, but also doubles as the Navy itself. This exists because the Millanian Army needed support during the Granadine-Cornosian Wars.

Aviation Force

The Millanian Aviation Force or FAM (Spanish: Fuerza Aérea Millániana) is the Air Force of the United Kingdoms of Millania. The Millanian Aviation Force (FAM) is one of the four institutions of the Military Forces of Millania, charged with working to exercise and maintain control of Millania's airspace and to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and order.

Maritime Aviation Squadron

The Millanian Maritime Aviation Squadron is the Naval Air Force of the United Kingdoms of Millania. It is charged with working to exercise and maintain control of Millania's marine airspace (and exclusive economic zone) and to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and order.

Imperial Guard

The Imperial Guard of Millania is a force devoted to the protection of the Government and Imperial Family of Millania. The Imperial Guard is unique in a sense that it consists of only three regiments the size of Brigades. The Guard is instead headed by a Primus Pilus, the equivalent of a Four-Star General.
