The Zamastanian Armed Forces (ZAF), or Zamastanian Forces (ZF), are the unified armed forces of Zamastan. This unified institution consists of three professional service branches: the Zamastanian Navy and Marines (forming the Zamastanian Naval Forces), the Zamastanian Army and the Zamastanian Air Force. The forces are managed by the Department of Defense and controlled by the Secretary of Defense. The Commander-in-Chief is the President of Zamastan, to whom members of the forces swear an oath of allegiance. The Armed Forces are charged with protecting Zamastan and its overseas territories, promoting Zamastan's global security interests and supporting international peacekeeping efforts. They are active and regular participants in the Coalition of Crown Albatross' global peacekeeping missions, and also operate with combined international forces through the Western Euronia Defense Alliance. Current end strength is authorized at 2,826,500, including 1,671,500 Regular Force members, 1,145,000 Reserve Force members and 110,000 civilian employees. The number of filled positions is lower than the authorized strength.

History

The history of the ZAF dates back to 1802, when the National Zamastan Liberation Front was formed to fight against the occupying Skithan Empire during the Zamastan War of Independence. Most of the NZLF was composed of freed-slaves and abolitionist colonists, though about six months into the conflict, standardized recruitment methods spread over the colony. The army modernized around 1805 to form a standardized military force similar to most western nations. The Navy and Army debuted on September 3rd, 1805, and the Air Force debuted on September 21st, 1924 with 10 planes. The 1808 adoption of the Constitution of Zamastan gave the Congress the power to "raise and support armies", to "provide and maintain a navy" and to "make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces", as well as the power to declare war. The President of Zamastan is the Armed Forces' commander-in-chief.
