“Our imperative is to protect our citizens, not to wage war. We attack only as a last resort.”
The Military of the Cyrannian Republic (Officially, the Republica Cyrannica'l Regha'sam) is the marshal force of the New Cyrannian Republic, formed soon after the Declaration of the Republic in the fifth month of 03 NE. Consisting of the naval Starfleet, the ground-based Army and the enigmatic New Republic Intelligence, the military is a large though efficient body tasked with the defense of the Republic, the exploration of space and the protection of the Republic's allies. The Republic Starfleet is the largest and arguably the most important arm of the Republic Military, responsible for the protection of the vast stretches of space under the Republic's banner. However, Starfleet places a much heavier emphasis on peaceful exploration than its predecessors and its neighbours, with exploration vessels similar to those used by Rambo Nation being used in deep-space and extra dimensional exploration.
Conversely, the Army of the Republic is an elite force created solely to protect the Republic against the various threats that it currently faces, including the warlike races of the Rihanae Pact and the deceptive Bisistar Domain. Relying on the very latest in advanced military technology and armed with an indomitable spirit, the beings who fight in the Army of the Republic are willing to fight, and die if necessary, in the protection of the Republic they serve.
Behind the Naval and Ground forces of the military lies the New Republic Intelligence Service (NRIS), which is responsible for the gathering of information regarding potential threats to the Republic, whether they be from a single individual, a foreign government or a far-away conflict. Though not as pervasive as its Imperial counterpart, Republic Intelligence is nonetheless a force to be feared. Officially overseen by the Republic Senate, NRIS is also responsible for carrying out covert operations both within Republic territory and outside it. For these reasons, Republic Intelligence, while by no means a secret organisation, tends to remain out of the spotlight lest the citizenry begin asking questions they may not like the answers to.
The military of the New Republic was formed soon after the creation of the government and was in many cases a merger of various already existing groups such as the militaries of the Republic in Exile and the various other remnants of the United Republic of Cyrannus that were disunited after the creation of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus at the conclusion of the Great Cyrannus War. Though initially centred on Apatalore in the Quadrant Galaxies, the Military soon moved its headquarters to Mou'Cyran after it was established. From the massive military complex in the middle of the Ionian Ocean, Republic Command soon established a more definitive hold over the three main arms of the Republic Military including the Navy, Army and Intelligence service. Initially, the Republic used almost exclusively old United Republic of Cyrannus weaponry and machinery though they quickly designed starships, vehicles and weaponry updated to modern Cyrannian standards, primarily to compete with the Empire should war ever come to the Republic's lands.
As the Republic expanded into the Coru Secundus region of the Cyrannus Galaxy, so do did its list of potential adversaries. As well a facing off against the occasional Neraida incursion, the Republic faced a more immediate threat in the form of the Rihanae Pact, an organisation consisting of the Jenassian Regency and the Regellis Star Empire. Though these battles would primarily be naval in nature, such as an important battle over Mou'Cyran itself, the Republic would face its first large land engagement on the new Ermitant homeworld of Venetia alongside many of its allies both within the Mou'Cyran Accords and outside it, including the Brood of War, Algolurn Popular Republic, Indoctrinate Collective, Naakjian Confederation, Delpha Coalition of Planets and Rambo Nation.
The Republic Army is the main land based force of the New Republic as well as the second largest branch of the Republic Military after the Naval forces. Due to the emphasis that the Republic places on space combat, the Army functions primarily to defend Republic worlds against the threat of attack by a foreign power though it also serves alongside the Navy during planetary invasions or liberations, most famously during the Great Battle of Venetia, when the Republic Army fought alongside the Indoctrinate Collective, the Brood of War and others to liberate the world from the Bisistar Domain. Though ultimately reporting to the overarching Republic Command and serving at the will of the Senate, the Army is led by General of the Army Anqual Gahan, a Mon Nahdar with a noted hatred for the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus. In the early years of the Republic's existence, the Army retained equipment mainly stemming from the United Republic of Cyrannus though it later invested in more advanced designs for both its soldiers and vehicles.
Republic Intelligence ServiceEdit
An enigmatic and somewhat shadowy organisation, the New Republic Intelligence Service is the largest and most important intelligence agency acting in the name of the New Republic. Officially overseen by the Senate, in truth NRIS is a primarily independent organisation which only ostensibly acts under the supervision of the civilian assembly. Though not as pervasive as its Imperial counterpart, Republic Intelligence is nonetheless a force to be feared. NRIS is also responsible for carrying out covert operations both within Republic territory and outside it. For these reasons, Republic Intelligence, while by no means a secret organisation, tends to remain out of the spotlight lest the citizenry begin asking questions they may not like the answers to.
“A dutiful organisation formed to safeguard the interests of the Republic and her citizens.”

- The Republic Military, despite its might, still pales in comparison to the military of the Empire.
