Component forces and their organization

Principality of St. George Ground Forces

The Principality of St. George Ground Forces (SGDF) are mostly used for patrolling/monitoring the borders of the country. Because of the introduction of drones, the SGDF now, usually, uses only those for patrolling. Since the Principality of St. George does not share borders with any enemy nation, the SGDF has never been used to respond to military aggression/insurgency that could threaten the sovereignty of the nation. However, the members of the forces are trained mostly in various survival, surveillance and counter surveillance scenarios.
