History Military history of Iokuma
Ranks Military ranks of Iokuma
The Zhautakar (Iokumese: Xâutakâr, "Citadel of Zhautan") in the unified military force of Iokuma. The military operates with a parallel military system, with two separate yet co-equal armed forces under the same command structure. These two subordinated arms are the Shovijedak and the Uharajedak, which operate as the external and internal military forces of Iokuma. The externally-facing Shovijedak consists of three branches; the Marovak, Shonavak, and Iyavak. The internally-facing Uharajedak consists of just two branches; the Izhonovak and Vajavak. The Ta'Zhazhan serves as the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, and coordinates with the Sphere of Household Preservation to development and execute the military policies of the nation. The highest-ranking military official is the Ta'Zhadak, a position which is currently occupied by TBD TBD of the Zhautakar. Additionally, the Hakikatar operates as a semi-independent reserve component of the military, providing trained military personnel from all XX hakiyonin of the country to the common defense Iokuma.

Iokuma's maintains the largest unified military force in the world, with nearly 4.5 million active personnel, and another two million reservists as of 2020. Furthermore, the military operates with a budget of $816.761 billion for the year of 2020 according to the nation budget presented to the Ta'Zhazhan the previous year. Most of the budget is allotted to the maintenance of personnel salaries, and the vast weapon stores throughout the country for the rapid mobilization of the population during wartime. Though the vast size of the population has always afforded the state with a large pool of volunteers, conscription remains a legal measure by which to obtain additional combat and support personnel. Because of the unique cultural developments in Iokuma over the last eight centuries, only women are permitted to serve in the military, with military service being mandatory for all barren women in the population from the age of thirteen. To date, no man has ever served within the ranks of the Zhautakar since its founding in 1398, making it the only such military force in the world where men have not served in some capacity as uniformed personnel. The Zhautakar has been a unified institution since its founding in 1398, making it one of the oldest organized military forces in the world still in active service. It was modernized in 1837 during the TBD, and was most recently reorganized in 19XX when the Iyavak was established as an independent branch of the military, with distinct formations separate from the Marovak and Shonavak.

The armed forces have played a distinct role in the history of Iokuma, helping to expand the borders of the nation during its formative years, as well as defending its sovereignty during the various points in the country's history where the European powers attempted to partition the country in 1884. Following the successful defense and expansion of the country in the immediate aftermath of the conflicts, the Iokumese military emerged as one of the most experienced fighting forces in the world, and the largest military force on the continent of Africa. Decades-long initatives to bring Iokuma's military forces to meet the Europeans on equal ground would further bolster the capabilities of the Zhautakar, and help establish Iokuma as a truly independent power on the world stage. Iokuma would remain a non-aligned power throughout Great War I, exploiting the weaknesses of the European powers to seize vast swathes of East Africa for itself, as well as cementing the reputation of the armed forces as one of the world's premier military institutions. Today, Iokuma maintains several military bases overseas in friendly states and international flashpoints where a military presence is required for the national security of Iokuma, as well as several so-called "black sites" where its intelligence forces operate against terrorist elements in the global War on Terror.

Iokuma has not disclosed its nuclear capabilities to the international community, and is not a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The Iokumese military is believed to have successfully developed nuclear weapons in 1981, with some nuclear weapons experts claiming the country has a stockpile between 100–500 warheads, a claim with Iokuma has neither confirmed nor denied. Regardless of the status of its nuclear capabilities, Iokuma possesses a vibrant nuclear power grid, and is well within the threshold of developing an arsenal of nuclear warheads and the delivery mechanisms for them if pushed to do so. Iokuma has unofficially sworn itself to a "no first use" policy in the event that a nuclear conflict becomes inevitable, leading some within the international community to believe the country does indeed possess a nuclear arsenal.
