Forze Armate Florentiana ~ Florencian Armed Forces
The Florencian Army dates back to the Republic of Florencia and has fought in numerous engagements over the years, particularly as an appendage to the Yardistani Anarchic Corps, and often under the umbrella of the Shirerithian Armed Forces. The army is an umbrella that includes the land forces, navy, and a small air force. It now forms a part of the State Guard maintained by the State of Modan.
The FAF headquarters are located in Capitolia, opposite the Governor’s Palace; although it has three other bases on Florencia. The army is an all-volunteer force of active-duty personnel, numbering 10,062 as of 1621 AN.

Aeronautica Florentiana ~ Florencian Air Force
1st Squadron Cesare (1st Wing)
The Cicogna (Stork) is a Tellian "short take-off and landing" (STOL) aircraft formerly manufactured by the Officine Meccaniche d'Tellia SA before its liquidation following the collapse of the Minarborian portion of the Tellian Condominium. Designed for short-range reconnaissance and light transport, the aircraft is primarily used for army liaison and communication flights.
No-one knows the origins of this bizarre road worthy autogyro, which was discovered in 1642 during a raid on the compound of a local smuggler who had absconded from Lich justice. As a road worthy vehicle, the contraption is able to land on the coastal road of northern Florencia, and return to base under its own power, its undercarriage being in a robust tricycle configuration. Usually attached to supporting the Carabinieri.
Carabinieri ~ Florencian Police
~1,200 police officers
