The Ministry of Defense of the North American Confederation is a government department responsible for implementing the defense policy set by His Majesty's Government, and is the headquarters of the North American Armed Forces.

The Ministry's principal objectives are to defend the North American Confederation and its interests and to strengthen international peace and stability. The Ministry also works with the General Inspector to manage the day-to-day operations of the armed forces, contingency planning and defense procurement.

History

Despite the Confederation's founding in November of 2010, the establishment of the Armed Forces did not occur until the 1st of January 2011, with the establishment of the Ministry of War. General Juan Carlos was immediately appointed to the position and helped to lead the North American Confederation through the Micronational War on Terror. Despite initial military successes abroad, domestic issues led to General Carlos's resignation following the Emperor's abdication in April of 2011. With the loss of the Minister of War, the North American Confederation found itself without a viable head for the Armed Forces and soon collapsed into the period known as the Interregnum.

With the appointment of the Marx government in May of 2015 came the reformation nearly every ministry of government, including Ministry of War. On the 26th of September, Prime Minister Marx appointed General Jacob Benning as the newly reformed Minister of Defense.
