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.
Army of Burgundie
|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.

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.
