Druk Yul - National Factbook (No comments other than from OP please.)

Rules for RPing with Maelstrom:
1. You recognize I have what is posted in this fact book or talk to me about what is presented here so we can reach a consensus on equipment and "toys".
2. We may choose to use nukes, but if we do and it has to be a shared decision, then we use the in game damage that would be delivered by our nukes. The equivalent tech and infra damage do remain. Instead, if you target troops and tanks you will wipe out whatever is deployed in the area of effect or up to 10% of existing troops and tanks if targeting a military base. If you target a civilian center, you get the rp morale effects, but only kill 5% of existing troops and tanks.
3. All rp must be collaborative and co-operative.
4. If we begin to disagree over the course of a story arc and cannot reach agreement we may agree to clear the story as if it never occurred or seek arbitration. If the dispute cannot be resolved then the events are erased. Dice and games can also be a fun way to resolve impasses. I like chess.

Tech level: 2014
Defcon: 5
Military Statistics:
Current Troop count: 850,000
Current Tank Count: 85,000:
Every company is accompanied by a sky guard area defense vehicle as part of its hq unit. A standard Druk Yul company is 1000-1200 troops
The standard Druk Yul tank platoon is 4 tanks. 3 Platoons and a headquarters with 2 tanks, a M113A2, 2 M998 HMMWV's and 2 2.5-ton trucks with trailers make up a Company. There are 4 Companies in a Battalion. Armored Battalions are matched 1:1 with Infantry. The matched infantry battalion will be hard or soft dependent upon the terrain it is required to operate in. In extreme terrains, mountaineer battalion with engineers. Every company, regardless of type, is accompanied by a battery of support artillery using either Howtizers or MRLS launchers. Tracked artillery is used in the most difficult terrains as far as they can be maneuvered.
Aircraft: 630, 630 active, 0 long term storage and care.
Stealth Aircraft: 60 total, 60 active for training and discipline of the wing, 0 long term storage and care.
Space Planes: 5, 5 active, 0 long term storage and care. (Experimental Prototypes)
Standard border defensive, passive.. generic:
Active border defenses include remotely manned trigger able devices of a wide variety, including sensor triggered weaponry. Borders are also covered by motion sensors.
Ocean waters have been heavily mined including underwater pre-stationed torpedo mounts. The mounts are tethered to a special antenna network which permits identification of friendly ships by specific encrypted iff broadcast that rotates daily and is managed by the Druk Yul Navy. The Oceanic defense zone is 200 km deep including shore to ship missile batteries, gun emplacements at key locations, tactical radar stations and tastefully hidden bunkers on the beaches every half-kilometer
Air defenses include a large number of flak batteries, surface to air missiles, anti-missile defense systems, and thel laser defenses linked into a mutli-layer radar network that includes Doppler, traditional sweep radars, oth-b which can see the approach of stealth aircraft at a distance, phased array systems all orchestrated by a joint identification program similar to AEGIS and which is heavily emp shielded and using Dream Plague encryption systems. It is likely the most advanced air-defense network the world has ever seen. Secretly, behind closed doors, the high command refers to it as "Light Show."

Information and Communications Systems (Cyber-warfare)


Dream Plague


Druk Yul's national military data infrastructure is protected by the "Dream Plague" a hunter-seeker white-hat virus that scans each computer.. makes sure it is properly encrypted by national standards, validates all files to ensure they meet military protocol, and locks down anything that doesn't meet the protocols until they can be authenticated by someone in the high command as a valid data library. It also actively encrypts all incoming and outgoing information with a daily variable 256 bit key based on an unpublished cipher that uses random data points to construct itself and never repeats rendering all Druk Yul military information near impossible to intercept or decode. Every month the filing system of all computer systems in the Druk Yul military architecture shuts down for 3 hours to totally re-encrypt the entire file system with a new key.


Dream Plague aggressively seeks out undocumented programs on the system and renders them inert, restricting all permissions until the file is logged in the standards protocol of the core Dream Plague database which is only accessible by at most 10 people at the head of the Druk Yul government. Dream plague is operational on EVERY Druk Yul military system that contains more than 1 mb of data.


Dream Plague automatically spreads itself to any device connected to the Druk Yul military architecture.. meaning if a spy puts a usb key into a Druk Yul system, that key will become useless to the spy without the 256 bit key that Dream Plague utilizes.


OOC Note (Your characters don't know this stuff): Dream Plague is not actually an AI. It's based on RL tech. Therefore, is not optional recognition. It claims to be an AI to frighten potential spies into thinking that Druk Yul actually has such a thing.
