The professional Burgoignesc Security Forces are composed of volunteers, male and female citizens aged from 20 to 34 (in special cases up to 50) years. A permanent navy, air force and Revenue Guard are maintained, but there is no permanent professional land force, within Burgundie proper. Each of the four counties Burgundie, Dübenneck, Wintergen and Zelthaus maintain a standardized militia program, that can be federalized by decree of the Viceroy.

Army of Burgundie

Main article: Army of Burgundie

Because of its non-permanent status, the majority of Burgundie's Army is best suited to fourth generation warfare, which is the basic doctrine of force. It relies entirely on small unit tactics and small, fast armored vehicles. This doctrine is born from the Viking origins of the nation, that surmise that all citizens are soldiers and that standing armies are too expensive for the threat levels that Burgundie has historically encountered.

Standardized Militia Program

Young Burgundians receive their federal conscription orders for training at the age of 18, or after they have completed their high school studies. About two thirds of the young Burgundians are found suited for military service; for those found unsuited, various forms of alternative federal service exist. Annually, approximately 42,000 persons participate in the militia program which consists of a 3 month basic training period, three 30 day special skills training (sabotage/explosives, amphibious operations, long-range shooting), a two month tactical decision making class, a two month review training period, culmination in a month long exercise. Four week-long leaves are provided as part of the program. Once the "year of service" is completed and voting citizenship is attained, citizens can volunteer to continue their participation in the Standardized Militia Program. Participates receive the following benefits: 100% of the first higher education degree paid for, non-competitive status for federal jobs, a $500 tax break/annum, $10,000 stipend/annum and access to housing programs/preferential lending rates.

Defense Intelligence

There is no public record of a military intelligence service in Burgundie, but conspiracy theorists have pointed to the over-funded Department of Ornithology as a likely cover for such an operation.

Department of Defense Wide Joint Activities

The Department of Defense-Wide Joint Activities (DoDwJA) is the newest branch of the Burgoignesc Security Forces that oversees and mediate issues that span multiple branches, namely: logistics, services, contracting, strategic planning and development, R&D, and international commitments (like the LUDC).

It overseas the navy's Sealift Command, the Air Service's Airlift Command, and the Army's Transportation Command which overseas federal highways and rail networks. It coordinates all requests for movement of personnel, materiel, and goods to ensure the utmost efficiency of movement.

It also took over administration of non-combat assets previously administered by the Air Services Naval Services Corps making it one of the largest hospitality entities in world. It also provides the framework of non-proprietary fights that constantly connect the Burgoignesc Metropole to its disparate global footprint, through Thatalocraccy Express Airlines. The airline is just a contract mechanism that is then divvied out to successful bidders to provide a small portion of their airfleet, pilot and mechanical cadre to support the airline but in so doing, join as members of the Airlift Command Ready Reserve who cana be mobilized in times of National Emergency.

DoDwJA also contains the Expeditionary Initial Airfield Resources Program (ExInAir) which is basically the 21st SeaBees, to rapidly establish airfields for use by Airlift Command to supply cbst operations all over the world.

DoDwJA additionally had the Expeditionary Initial Port Facilities Program (ExInPort) to rapidly establish/reconstitute ports for use by Sealift Command to supply combat operations all over the world.

DoDwJA maintains "ready to deploy" and "forward deployed" stockpiles of essential warfighting supplies in order to reduce delivery times for critical combat necessities and also why the Burgoignesc Security Forces maintaon a minimum of 60/40 reserve to active ration on all systems/supplies. Conspiracy theorists have concluded that there is not a single square meter of land that is more than 2000km from a DoDwJA stockpile. When pressed during a press conference a spokesperson laughed this off as impossibly expensive to maintain, but took no further questions as they were due in parliament for budget negotiations.
