The National Armed Forces of Roscamistan are the unified military forces of the Roscami Federation, founded over a period of several months in 2021. It is led nominally by the President of Roscamistan as Commander in Chief, with the chief of defence being the Chief of the Defence Staff.

Command and Administration

The Armed Forces is overlooked by the Ministry of Defence and the Defence Secretary and is nominally directed by the President as Commander-in-Chief. The day to day running of the armed forces is managed by the Defence Staff, led by the Chief of the Defence Staff. The Armed Forces can be command solely by the Commander-in-Chief in times of emergency.


The Armed Forces is led by the President, who is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. The professional head of the Armed Forces is the Chief of the Defence Staff, who is head of the Defence Staff, the body appointed by the President that serves as the high command. There are also three chiefs of staff, one for each of the three branches of the Armed Forces.


The civil administration of the Armed Forces is done by the Ministry of Defence, headed by the Defence Secretary.

Defence Staff

The Defence Staff is the commanding authority of the Armed Forces, being the highest authority giving orders to officers. Its members are appointed by the President as Commander in Chief on advice of the Defence Secretary and the Ministry of Defence. The Defence Staff is made up of 8 members maximum. The leading member of the Defence Staff is the Chief of the Defence Staff, who is also the highest military officer in the Defence Forces. The current roles that are ex officio members are:

  • Commander in Chief: in war times, the Commander in Chief is the chairman of the Defence Staff, appoints the members of the Defence Staff
  • Chief of the Defence Staff: the normal chairman of the Defence Staff in peacetime, and gives orders to the many officers
  • Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff: deputy to the Chief of the Defence Staff
  • Defence Secretary: the senior minister of the Ministry of Defence, and is advisor in military matters to the President along with the Chief of the Defence Staff
  • Army Commander: chief of staff of the National Army
  • Naval Commander: chief of staff of the National Navy
  • Air Commander: chief of staff of the National Air Forces

There also two extra members for the special branches of the Army and the Navy.

Provincial Defence Brigades

The militias are army units in the provinces. The militias are lead by the commander, and in some of the provinces, the Governors are also ex officio commander of that militia. Militias are responsible to the Ministry of Defence, the Defence Secretary and the Chief of the Defence Staff. Militias are created and abolished at the will of the Defence Ministry and the Defence Secretary. The current militias are the Mervustan Militia (Mervustan), the Greater Roscam Army (Greater Roscam), Motofian Defence Force (Motofia), the Connemara Rangers (Connemara), the Galway Defence Regiment and the National Galwegian Collinite Army (Galway City).


Like most militaries, the National Armed Forces has ranks, which all of its active members have. All enlisted members start off with the rank of Private, and enlisted officers start off with Officer Cadet. All the service branches have ranks. The highest ranks in the Defence Forces by rank are Marshal of the Republic (army), Fleet Admiral of the Republic (navy) and High Marshal of the Air Forces (Air Forces).
