THE IMPERIAL ARMED FORCES
The Imperial Sarovian Armed Forces (ISAF) is the biggest government employer in the New Sarovian Empire. It is the oldest institution other than the monarchy itself and consists of land forces known as the Imperial Army and naval forces known as the Imperial Navy. Its purpose is straightforward – to defend the borders, honour and prestige of the Empire from enemies anywhere and anytime. The Armed Forces are chaired by the Supreme War Council (abbreviated as the SWC) and it serves as the advisory body to the Emperor in all military aspects. The Supreme War Council is subdivided into five administrative departments, which help with the bureaucratic nature of the Armed Forces. The departments oversee all forces from any part of the Empire and from all branches.
