The professional Burgundian 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.

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.

Established in 1148, the Revenue Guard is an Burgundian law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance.

It is responsible for dealing with financial crime and smuggling; it has also evolved into Burgundie's primary agency for suppressing the drugs trade.

The Revenue Guard also maintains a number of specialized units:

  • International Waters Fast Action Team- also known as Dolphin Team Whiskey, or Delta Tango Whiskey, this team has special dispensation from the League of Nations with limited legal powers in international powers, primarily search and rescue missions but of note they have the "powers to maintain a safe working environment, by the means deemed vernacularly appropriate by the team leader". In the events resulting in the loss of life, the team is required to brief the League of Nations Security Council.
  • Fire Brigade of Burgundie- the brigade des engenhaire-pombiers Burgundie (BEBB), (Eng: Fire Brigade of Burgundie) is a militarized firefighting unit of the Revenue Guard. It oversees all multi-jurisdictional firefighting activity in Burgundie.
  • Penal Service Department- administers all of the batalhons penaux (Eng. penal battalions) across the various overseas territories of Burgundie.
  • Imperial Revenue Guard- a hold over from the days of the Holy Levantine Empire, the Vectigal Praesidio Imperium (Eng. Imperial Revenue Guard) conduct the business of the Revenue Guard in Burgundian Latium.
  • Burgundian Maritime Navigation Administration- maintains the infrastructure, collects and disseminates the data relevant to maritime navigation in and around Burgundie.
