Royal Rashian Army
The Royal Rashian Army, also known as the Royal Army, is the standing army of the Rashian Empire. Established by the first Rashian Emir, Nassim al-Rashia, the Army has a long-standing tradition of acting as the military arm of the Empire both within and without its borders.
The Royal Army was created not long after the first settlers came to Dania from Hasia as a trained force that would act in defense of Bashashar and the other settlements. As the Rashian Empire grew in power, so did the need for a strong military. In the 12th year of his reign, the Emir Khalid al-Rashia expanded the military in order to allow for extra-territorial ventures. A few years before, the Empire had come into conflict with the Baldic Khanate: a small but very militant country found to the south east. Emir Khalid’s enlarged military would allow him to counter the incursions that the Baldics were making towards the Rashian southern colonies of Alahu and Harid.
Due to its central location in the southern oceanic region, the Rashian Empire has found itself involved in many quarrels and a few wars with nearby nations, and as such its military has proved of vital importance. Many Rashians consider a military career the most prestigious available so are attracted to the Royal Army as well as the Royal Revenue Service
