[b]King Alaric I von Ösel[/b]
Born on December 17, 1980 as Alaric Völund von Ösel, he is the first man to be elected to the Prussian Monarchy. He spent his childhood studying linguistics, martial arts, and political theory, receiving his diploma two years early. He went to college at the University of Riga, triple majoring in Political Science, Horticulture, and Political Philosophy, with minors in European History and Philosophy. He served in local councils on Ösel during the German and Livonian eras, and rose to prominence by restoring the region's independence. He was subsequently elected King with 54% of the overall vote, and is credited as the main author of the Prussian Constitution. His title was changed by Diet vote to King six years later. King Alaric is fluent in Russian, Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Latin, French, Norwegian, Nordlandic, Greek, and English, having found a love for language in his early years. He is a liberal nationalist, and supports a strong government that respects the rights of its citizens, which he is determined to provide.

[b][u][size="4"]Politics[/size][/u][/b]
Under the Royal Constitution, political parties are not given official recognition by the government and are given no role in governance, in the interest of promoting national identity. Party politics do exist, however, though they act as more of a way of raising campaign funds than coherent coalitions; it is very common for legislators to cross party lines on votes.

[b][u]Nationalistische Partei Preußen[/u][/b]
Ideology: Liberal nationalism
Chairman: Sigimund Schräder
Diet Seats: 22
Motto: Stability, prosperity, and liberty!
Overview: The Nationalists are the single largest and most-supported party in the Kingdom. Their basic platform encourages a sense of national identity, with each citizen looking upon others as his social equals, while respecting the personal liberties of its citizens. They call for equality, tolerance, and personal freedom. They support a strong government that respects the rights of their citizens to live their lives as they choose. The NPK also displays certain socialistic tendencies, including high taxes on the wealthy and certain restrictions on big business. They seek to maintain friendly relations with all of Prussia's neighbors, especially Germania and Slavorussia while distancing the nation from radical regimes.

[b][u]Demokratische Leutes Partei[/u][/b]
Ideology: Socialist
Chairman: Willamar Foth
Diet Seats: 23
Motto: The People are our Authority!
Overview: The DLP comprises most of the leftist thinkers of the King, from radical communists to moderate socialists, though history has seen a shift from its Leninist roots in favor of more moderate socialism. Although it was once viewed as the most fragile party, the DLP has risen to be the second largest party in Prussia, though their rise to power is now challenged by the emergent Monarchists.

[b][u]Freie Leutes Organisation[/u][/b]
Ideology: Libertarian socialism
Chairman: Sigibert Ebner

Motto: Free your mind, free your life.
Overview: The FPO is considered one of the more extreme parties in Prussia. They typically run on a platform of getting government out of the people's lives and freeing the working class from corporate overlords. Critics say that the FPO's points are moot on account of the government's staunch refusal to get involved in peoples' lives beyond to assist them. The FPO opposes all expansion of government, and would prefer to establish a state with no government, and maintain only the military as a way of protecting the people. They do not want Prussia to get involved abroad at all. Since the first election, the FPO's support has waned as the Nationalist-led Diet continues to keep the peoples' liberty at heart. It is not unknown for FPO members to flip over to the DPP or NPK.

[b][u]Nordlandische Partei[/u][/b]
Ideology: Nordic socialism
Chairman: Gunter Fuhrmann
Motto: Nordlandic then, Nordlandic forever!
Overview: The NRP advocates the reestablishment of the Nordlandic state and the implementation of a Nordlandic cultural identity. Their 'Nordic socialist' ideas are essentially just another word for fascism; they support a powerful government with complete authority in all matters. They seek to abolish the elective monarchy and instead have the monarch select his own successor. They also support relations with the Großdeutsches Reich.

[size="6"][center][u][b]Documents and Legislation[/b][/u][/center][/size]

[quote][center][size="5"][u][b]Constitution of the Kingdom of Kurland[/b][/u][/size][/center]
Preamble
We the People of the State of Kurland, in the interest of our lives, material welfare, and the expediency of good governance, do hereby establish the sovereign Kingdom of Kurland.

Section A: Sovereignty, The Monarch, and The Succession

Article I. Establishment of Sovereignty
The Kingdom of Kurland hereby asserts her independence, and shall henceforth recognize no foreign ruler and tolerate no foreign influence upon her land. It is the duty of the King, Diet, and the Military to uphold the freedom of Kurland and defend it in peace and in war.

Article II. The Monarch
The King or Queen is the supreme authority within Kurland, drawing that authority from the people, and represents the State personified. It is his or her duty to give their utmost effort for the betterment and protection of the State, and therefore, anything not specifically designated to another official falls to the Monarch. The Monarch appoints the Ministers of every department and the board of the High Court. The Monarch may not modify existing laws or enact new laws without it passing through the Diet.

Article III. The Succession
The Monarch shall be elected by a general election, and will rule until abdication or death. Upon death, a Regent from the administration will be appointed to oversee the election and govern the nation until the new Monarch is crowned. In order to be elected, an individual must be over the age of twenty-five, have held political office for five years or have served in the officer corps for at least two terms. A person who does not fulfill these requirements may still enter the running if a significant portion of the population indicates support for their campaign. A simple majority is required to win the election; if no single candidate received a majority, then the three Candidates with the most votes shall proceed to a second election, in which a mere plurality is required. In the event of a narrow victory, another Candidate or government official may call for a recount of the votes.

Section B: The Diet, The Chancellor, The Court, and The Regency

Article I. The Diet
The Diet is the legislative body of the Kingdom, and shall be comprised of one house containing members from each County in Kurland. The Counties will be assigned one Legislator per one hundred thousand legal citizens. A Population Census should be conducted every five years to ensure fairness. Elections will also be held once every five years, and Candidates for each seat require approval from a majority of their County‘s Voters. All Legislators are bound to their County, and the Graf and County Councils may, at any time, call for the impeachment of one of their legislators, which requires 2/3 of the total vote to be successful. All members of the Diet are required to attend a Legislative Summons, which are issued by the Chancellor to call together the assembly. Any member of the Diet may propose legislation, though their motion must be endorsed by at least four other Legislators before going up for vote. All motions must achieve majority votes to pass, but will not come into effect until enacted by the Monarch. The Monarch is free to veto any legislation from the Diet, but a Royal Veto may be overridden by a ¾ supermajority. The Monarch may also dismiss the Diet during a State of Emergency for a period of up to one year. At the end of this one year period, the Diet reassembles, and may repeal any laws enacted by the Monarch during that time.

Article II. The Chancellor
The Chancellor is the Head of Government and President of the Diet. He or she is elected by the General Populace to preside over assemblies of the Diet. He or she may call the Diet together at any time.

Article III. The Court
The High Court of the Kingdom of Kurland will consist of a High Judge and a six-man Board of High Justices that shall preside over all national criminal cases and Constitutional debates. The High Judge is selected from amongst the Justices, and is the only one actively involved in the cases. The rest of the Justices observe the case and vote with the Judge on the verdict once all evidence has been presented. In criminal convictions, the Monarch may issue a Royal Pardon to the convicted, usually with certain Terms of Pardon.

Article IV. The Regent
Upon the death of the Monarch, a Regent shall be appointed from the Ministries or the Military to preside over the next Royal Election and govern the nation with limited authority until the end of those elections. The Regent must acquire legislative approval to exercise any of the Royal powers.


Section C. The People, The Military, and Party Politics

Article I. The People
The People are the source of the Government’s authority, and it is with their good blessings that the Government rules. The People vote for their members of the Diet, the Chancellor, and the Monarch, and as the People are the ones who put the Government in power, the Government is not permitted to pass any legislation that would interfere with the personal lives of the people. By accepting their position, each official recognizes that it is not the place of the Government to dictate how individuals live their lives.

Article II. The Military
The Military consists of the Kurlandic Army, Air Force, and Navy, and is the primary defense of the Kingdom against foreign threats. The Military is subordinate to the Minister of Defense, who is in turn subordinate to the King. In the event of widespread dissent, or if an unpopular leader refuses to abdicate, it is the duty of the Military to topple the regime and rebuild it as the People demand.

Article III. Party Politics
Having recognized the problems that come of direct links between political parties and legislations and defining political parties as any organized group of individuals with similar religious, economic, or political goals, no political party shall receive official recognition from the Government, though they will not be explicitly banned unless found guilty of treason or conspiracy. Under no circumstances should this article be changed to allow for official recognition of political parties.

Section D. The Constitution

Article I. Amendments to the Constitution
The King, Chancellor, or any member of the Diet may, at any time, propose an amendment to the Constitution, which will require 2/3 approval from the Diet and the signature of the King. Any Amendment may be repealed by the High Judge within six months of passing if deemed unconstitutional. The Judge’s veto may be overturned in a national referendum, in which the People decide whether or not to pass the Amendment.

Article II. Suspending the Constitution
No government official may suspend or abolish the Constitution under any circumstance.[/quote]

The authorization shall be for a limited time. The order shall be issued by a panel composed of three judges. When time is of the essence, it may also be issued by a single judge.
To avert acute dangers to public safety, especially dangers to life or to the public, technical means of surveillance of the home may be employed only pursuant to judicial order.

Interferences and restrictions shall otherwise only be permissible to avert a danger to the public or to the life of an individual, or, pursuant to a law, to confront an acute danger to public safety and order, in particular to relieve a housing shortage, to combat the danger of an epidemic, or to protect young persons at risk.

Property entails obligations. Its use shall also serve the public good.
Expropriation shall only be permissible for the public good. It may only be ordered by or pursuant to a law that determines the nature and extent of compensation.

In case of dispute respecting the amount of compensation, recourse may be had to the ordinary courts..

Article XVI. (Socialization).

Land, natural resources, and means of production may for the purpose of socialization be transferred to public ownership or other forms of public enterprise by a law that determines the nature and extent of compensation. With respect to such compensation the third and fourth sentences of paragraph (3) of Article 14 shall apply mutatis mutandis.

Article XVII. (Citizenship; Extradition).

No Kurlander may be deprived of his citizenship. Citizenship may be lost only pursuant to a law, and against the will of t

Paragraph (1) of this Article may not be invoked by a person who enters the royal territory from a member state of the European Communities or from another third state in which application of the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms is assured. The states outside the European Communities to which the criteria of the first sentence of this paragraph apply shall be specified by a law requiring the consent of the Diet. In the cases specified in the first sentence of this paragraph, measures to terminate an applicant’s stay may be implemented without regard to any legal challenge that may have been instituted against them.
By a law requiring the consent of the Diet, states may be specified in which, on the basis of their laws, enforcement practices, and general political conditions, it can be safely concluded that neither political persecution nor inhuman or degrading punishment or treatment exists. It shall be presumed that a foreigner from such a state is not persecuted, unless he presents evidence justifying the conclusion that, contrary to this presumption, he is persecuted on political grounds.
In the cases specified by paragraph (3) of this Article and in other cases that are plainly unfounded or considered to be plainly unfounded, the implementation of measures to terminate an applicant’s stay may be suspended by a court only if serious doubts exist as to their legality; the scope of review may be limited, and tardy objections may be disregarded. Details shall be determined by a law.
Paragraphs (1) through (4) of this Article shall not preclude the conclusion of international agreements of member states of the European Communities with each other or with those third states which, with due regard for the obligations arising from the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, whose enforcement must be assured in the contracting states, adopt rules conferring jurisdiction to decide on applications for asylum, including the reciprocal recognition of asylum decisions.

Article XIX. (Right of Petition).

Every person shall have the right individually or jointly with others to address written requests or complaints to competent authorities and to the legislature.

Article XX. (Restriction of Certain Basic Rights by Laws Respecting Defense and Alternative Service).

Laws respecting military and alternative service may provide that the basic right of members of the Armed Forces and of alternative service freely to express and disseminate their opinions in speech, writing, and pictures (first clause of paragraph (1) of Article 5), the basic right of assembly (Article 8), and the right of petition (Article 17) insofar as it permits the submission of requests or complaints jointly with others, be restricted during their period of military or alternative service.
Laws respecting defense, including protection of the civilian population, may provide for restriction of the basic rights of freedom of movement (Article 11) and inviolability of the home (Article 13).

Article XXI. (Forfeiture of Basic Rights).

Whoever abuses the freedom of expression, in particular the freedom of the press (paragraph (1) of Article 5), the freedom of teaching (paragraph (3) of Article 5), the freedom of assembly (Article 8), the freedom of association (Article 9), the privacy of correspondence, posts and telecommunications (Article 10), the rights of property (Article 14), or the right of asylum (Article 16a) in order to combat the free democratic basic order shall forfeit these basic rights. This forfeiture and its extent shall be declared by the High Court.

Article XXII. (Restriction of Basic Rights).

Insofar as, under this Basic Law, a basic right may be restricted by or pursuant to a law, such law must apply generally and not merely to a single case. In addition, the law must specify the basic right affected and the Article in which it appears.
In no case may the essence of a basic right be affected.
The basic rights shall also apply to domestic artificial persons to the extent that the nature of such rights permits.
Should any person’s rights be violated by public authority, he may have recourse to the courts. If no other jurisdiction has been established, recourse shall be to the ordinary courts. The second sentence of paragraph (2) of Article 10 shall not be affected by this paragraph.[/quote]

[u][b]Prussian Armed Forces Command Structure[/b][/u][/center]
[u][i][b]The Monarch[/b][/i][/u]
[img]http://www.comicbookmovie.com/images/users/uploads/17374/CharlieHunnam.jpg[/img]
Incumbent: Alaric Völund I von Ösel
The King of Prussia is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Prussia, and is the only individual in the nation able to order extended troop deployments and military commitments. He may order military deployments of up to one year without the Diet's approval, but is required to seek legislative approval after that point. He has the right to overrule any decision made by the Grand Marshal and Minister of Defense, and may choose to take command of the military personally. The monarch appoints both the Minister of Defense and Grand Marshal, and can implement, approve, or overturn all military reforms.

The current King, Alaric I, does not involve himself heavily in military affairs, often relegating military duties to the more experienced von Reval or Minister Protz. He tends to support any motion to improve the overall quality of the armed forces, and is open to new ideas on how to make the military more effective, but other than that, remains uninvolved in most matters.

[u][i][b]Generalfeldmarschall[/b][/i][/u]
[img]http://i2.listal.com/image/468960/600full-maximilian-schell.jpg[/img]
Incumbent: Emelrich von Reval
The Generalfeldmarschall is the highest ranking officer in the entire KAF, and is the only one to be appointed by the King. The Generalfeldmarschall is ultimately in command of all military forces, though he must acquire approval from either the King or Minister of Defense in order to deploy troops abroad. He reviews all high-class military reports from the Coast Guard, Army, Air Force, and Marines. He must report on a weekly basis to the present King, and provide the monarch with all compiled reports.

The current Grand Marshal, Emelrich von Reval, is a veteran of German military campaigns, and served briefly as a reserve general in Livonia, refraining from active duty on account of his preference of German authority. When Alaric von Ösel was elected Herzog, he was able to convince von Reval to return to military service, taking overall control of his armed forces. Critical and authoritative, von Reval is constantly probing his subordinates for weaknesses, cutting out weak points and rebuilding strong ones wherever he finds them. He has high expectations for new military recruits, and encourages company-grade officers and drill sergeants to cut subpar recruits, though these recruits may still attempt to enlist in the coast guard or air force. He holds air force personnel to a similar level of training and discipline as the army, cutting slack only so they can master piloting or maintaining their equipment. The coast guard, being a branch of the Heer, has training that focuses on coastal patrol, rescue missions, and occasional military action, rather than focusing completely on combat training. The Marines, on the other hand, have the most rigorous of training programs, requiring up to ten months of intense training to become an active-duty Marine. After five months, the recruits are assigned to Reserve companies, but must complete the last five months of training to be placed on active duty.

[u][i][b]Minister of Defense[/b][/i][/u]
[img]http://i2.listal.com/image/807136/200full-.jpg[/img]
Incumbent: Sigifrid F. Protz
The Minister of Defense is charged by the King to act as a liaison with the military, processing most reports and dealing with many matters in the King's stead. The Minister may approve deployments of up to 90 days, but unlike the Monarch, requires the agreement of the Grand Marshal to do so.

Minister Protz is a former field-grade officer in the Livonian army, and therefore has a decent understanding of military affairs, having also graduated from the national military academy. He is full of suggestions and ideas, but is often dismissed by the Grand Marshal, who does not wish Protz's involvement in any way beyond am advisory role. As such, Protz usually concerns himself more with the intelligence side of things, so as to have something to present to the Marshal during meetings.

[u][i][b]Director of Intelligence[/b][/i][/u]
[img]http://i2.listal.com/image/844054/120full.jpg[/img]
Incumbent: Wilhelm K. Sommer
A subordinate to the Ministry of Defense, the Royal Intelligence Service is partly bound to the military, and often has to coordinate with the intel corps to accomplish missions, except in high-level cases. The Director will provide the Marshal and Minister with all pertinent information on matters of military and defense. Any orders to the Director by either the Minister or Grand Marshal can be overridden by the King.

Little is known about the current Director Sommer, aside from that he once owned a small technology business that ran efficiently until his resignation and that he served briefly as a Livonian Air Force intel officer.

[center][b][u][size="6"]Prussian Heer[/size][/u][/b][/center]
Under Grand Marshal von Reval, the Prussian Army has adopted strict disciplinary requirements, demanding higher physical standards of its new recruits.

Army recruits are required to attend seven months of boot camp, and are placed on reserve duty after three of these months, but must complete all seven to assume active duty. These recruit reserves will only be deployed in times of emergency.

The first three-month segment will be dedicated almost entirely to physical fitness and breaking the soldiers in to the military lifestyle, with only basic training in weaponry and tactics. Recruits will also be educated in army culture and terminology, and perform various drills regularly. Once the required fitness test is completed, the recruits will be placed in the reserve duty and then proceed on to the second, 4-month segment, which covers all combat exercises and improves the recruits' performance, while maintaining their previous fitness.

Recruits are required to maintain their fitness, and so must pass a physical fitness benchmark each month. This continues on into standard service. All personnel outside of boot camp must pass these tests every three months. Personnel are required to perform 25 pull-ups, 50 push-ups, 75 crunches, and a 4 mile run completed in 45 minutes, and must achieve this benchmark before exiting basic training. Failure to improve with the group may result in a trooper being dismissed from the service.

Recruits are also trained in hand-to-hand combat with bayonets, knives, weapons of opportunity, and no weapon at all. A four-stage mixed martial arts program will be part of the second half of training, the first level, Novice, teaching the basics of unarmed and melee combat and rudimentary punches, kicks, strikes, bayonet and knife use, chokes, locks, counters, and restraints and manipulations. The subsequent Apprentice, Fighter, and Master ranks each teach more advanced combat techniques, the last of which teaches recruits how to kill an enemy with their bare hands. Recruits are required to master every aspect of each rank before moving on, and so will advance at different paces.

[i][u][b]Generaloberst[/b][/u][/i]
[img]http://www.firstworldwar.com/bio/graphics/lettow.jpg[/img]
Current: Luitger W. Habich[/center]
The Generaloberst is the highest ranking officer in the Prussian Heer, equal to the Luftmarschall of the Luftwaffe and subordinate to the Grand Marshal. The general field marshal is in charge of all things to do with the army, but adheres to the orders of the grand marshal and King whenever they see the need to step in.

Generaloberst Luitger Habich is a veteran of the German, Swedish, and Livonian armies, but only saw active combat in the German army. He climbed his way to the top of the Army hierarchy of Prussia, and has proven competent in all ways, but he is being threatened in his post by the up-and-coming Brigadegeneral Týr Bernat, recently promoted for his service in the Prussian Expeditionary Force, though publicly the reason was simply 'outstanding service on behalf of the Duchy.'

The Prussian Army is divided into two corps of 60,000 men, which are in turn divided into 10,000-men divisions, each of which consist of two regiments of 5,000. It makes use of a variety of weapons, primarily of German, American, and Russian origin

[u][b]First Corps[/b][/u]
Strength: Six divisions equaling 60,000 soldiers, 600 tanks, 1,200 APCs/IFVs, 1,200 SPA, 1,800 towed arty, 300 helicopters, divided equally amongst the divisions
Commander: Generalleutnant Reinhard L. Brotz

Commandant: Heinrich Dietrich von Hesse[/center]

The Commandant is the highest ranked official in the SEK, and is recommended by his predecessor or the Grand Marshal and approved by the monarch. He or she is in charge of coordinating between the different Marine units, and is the only head of a military branch allowed to deploy troops on a moment's notice during times of war.

The current commandant, Heinrich von Hesse, is a veteran of several foreign wars, serving in the Slavorussian, Swedish, Livonian, and German armies before offering his services to the Prussian government. He assisted in the organization of the army and Marines, and on account of his merits, was appointed Commandant of the Special Deployment Forces by Grand Marshal von Reval and King Alaric I. He is a bold leader, but not brash, and unless timing is critical, will get to know his enemy as much as possible before deploying his Marines.

The Special Deployment Forces, commonly referred to as Marines or SEK, have the most rigorous of training programs, aside from the Raiders, requiring up to ten months of intense training to become an active-duty Marine. After five months, the recruits are assigned to Reserve companies, but must complete the last five months of training to be placed on active duty.

Marine recruits are required to attend seven months of boot camp, and are placed on reserve duty after three of these months, but must complete all seven to assume active duty. These recruit reserves will only be deployed in times of emergency.

The first five-month segment will be dedicated almost entirely to physical fitness and breaking the soldiers in to the military lifestyle, with only basic training in weaponry and tactics. Recruits will also be educated in military culture and terminology, and perform various drills regularly. Once the required fitness test is completed, the recruits will be placed in the reserve duty and then proceed on to the second, 5-month segment, which covers all combat exercises and improves the recruits' performance, while maintaining their previous fitness.

Recruits are required to maintain their fitness, and so must pass a physical fitness benchmark each month. This continues on into standard service. All personnel outside of boot camp must pass these tests every three months. Personnel are required to perform 40 pull-ups, 75 push-ups, 100 crunches, and a 5 mile run completed in 35 minutes, and must achieve this benchmark before exiting basic training. Failure to improve with the group may result in a trooper being dismissed from the service.

Recruits are also trained in hand-to-hand combat with bayonets, knives, weapons of opportunity, and no weapon at all. A four-stage mixed martial arts program will be part of the second half of training, the first level, Novice, teaching the basics of unarmed and melee combat and rudimentary punches, kicks, strikes, bayonet and knife use, chokes, locks, counters, and restraints and manipulations. The subsequent Apprentice, Fighter, and Master ranks each teach more advanced combat techniques, the last of which teaches recruits how to kill an enemy with their bare hands. Recruits are required to master every aspect of each rank before moving on, and so will advance at different paces.

The last month for SEK training is devoted to mastering the basics of various services, including first aid, mechanics, electrical, armor training, and touching up on areas that each squad is lacking in based on the drill sergeants' and CO's judgement.

Luftmarschall: Eadgar D. Klein[/center]
The Luftmarschall is the highest ranking Air Force officer, in charge of all things of or relating to the Luftwaffe. He deals with the acquisition and deployment of the aircraft inventory, occasionally doing so for the Heer's helicopter inventory. He is subordinate to the Grand Marshal and equal to the Generalfeldmarschall of the Heer.

Luftmarschall Eadgar Klein is rather fresh when it comes to leadership, having no former military or combat experience, unlike the army and SEK commanders. However, he has proven his worth countless times, acquiring fighters and strike aircraft easily and ensuring that all malfunctions in any plane is fixed immediately. He often holds meetings with other high-ranking Luftwaffe officers to get fresh perspectives, and because of this and his skill, Grand Marshal von Reval tends to leave him and the Luftwaffe to their own designs.

[center][b][u][size="6"]The Raiders[/size][/u][/b][/center]
The remaining 3,320 soldiers form the Raiders, the special ops of the Kingdom. Raiders are selected at an early age from the Royal foster care system and placed in the custody of the Army. While in military custody, the children are given an education, healthcare, counseling, and whatever else is necessary. It is mandatory for all students to participate in sports; football (soccer), rugby, basketball, gymnastics, martial arts, boxing, wrestling, and, when older, free running.

Students begin karate, basketball, and football at age 5; they begin gymnastics and rugby at age 8; boxing and wrestling begin at age 13; students learn to free run once they turn 15.

Upon reaching the age of 16, when they are deemed mature enough to make their own decisions, students must pick two choices; they can either continue their training and ultimately become a Raider, or they can choose to exit the program and reintegrate into civilian society, with financial aid from the government.

At age 20, students graduate from the Raider Trainee Program and move on to the actual training. Raider Boot Camp is a brutal, two-year ordeal, and only the best of the students make it through. Those that fail may still be assigned to Task Forces in the Army and Marines, and may resign after a two-year term of service. At the end of training, one of the final tests is for a trainee to kill a man with his bare hands; for this test, the NKPD transfers convicted murderers set for execution to the Raiders. Those that make it through boot camp are sworn into the Raiders, and those that proved to have the best leadership and combat skills are chosen to command the Raider teams. Each team consists of 50 men, though they may be deployed in coordination with one another under the overall command of the most skilled officer.

Raiders are considered separate from the normal military hierarchy, and unless specified otherwise, are not answerable to any Marine, Army, Air Force, or Naval officer under the rank of Brigadier General or equivalent. Currently, the lifetime training program is in progress, and until then, the Raiders will consist of volunteer Marines and soldiers put through a total of three years of training, though they will be available for deployment after one year.

[b][u]Organization[/u][/b]
The Raiders are answerable directly to the monarch, though their training is handled by the Ministry of Special Tasks and they acquire their own equipment with minimal assistance from the rest of the army.

There are a total of 4,900 Raiders at this time. There are four Raider Groups of 1,225 men each, which are broken down into two Combat Units of 610 men each. The two Combat Units are further divided into 50-man Raider teams, which is the typical deployment of Raiders. At the direction of the Team's commanding officer, these teams can be divided into 10 man squads. Master Sergeants will usually lead these teams, but if a lower-ranking Raider outperforms and leads better in the circumstance, he may be appointed by a meritocratic selection, which can take effect immediately. Usually, this will be accompanied by a field promotion.

The Raiders are based on the island of Vormsi, which is to be converted into a full Raider facility as funds become available.
