|This page (or section) is a work in progress by its author(s) and should not be considered final.|
The Royal Tavari Armed Forces is the military force of Tavaris, consisting of the Royal Tavari Army, the Royal Tavari Navy, the Royal Tavari Air Force, and the Royal Tavari Marshals.
Until 2016, Tavaris had a policy of mandatory conscription of all 18 year old citizens. After 2016, the Royal Tavari Armed Forces switched to a voluntary service model. During conscription, all citizens, male and female, were required to serve a total of 36 months in the Tavari military, except those in the Akronist clergy or employed by registered shrines of the Tavat Avati Shrine Association. After serving 18 months in fully-active service, citizens entered into what was called statutorily "active reserve status" for another 18 months. These people continued semi-regular training exercises and were eligible to be called upon in the event of a crisis. The last conscripted Tavari completed their service on December 31st, 2019.
In times of national invasion, all able-bodied citizens aged 30 and under can be called back into "active reserve status" and immediately begin training; reserves would be drawn from as needed to defend the country. Voluntary membership in the reserves is referred to as "non-active reserve status."
In 2020, Tavaris budgeted to spend the equivalent of SH$77,223,809,169 on the Royal Tavari Armed Forces, or approximately 3.5% of GDP. Of this, SH$8.8 billion was allocated to the Royal Tavari Marshals, leaving SH$68,398,230,987 (or 3.1% of GDP) for the remaining sectors of the Armed Forces.
The Empire counts 599,238 people in active duty status. This figure includes members of the Royal Tavari Marshals (including the national police, border guard, and coast guard) which are not always counted among global militaries as active duty. Excluding these individuals, in 2020 the total number of active duty personnel was 362,206. The total number of Tavari serving in the reserves was approximately 1,440,000 in 2020.
