North Frequesuan Trust
The North Frequesuan Trust is SiegeTank's nation in SDN_World.
The North Frequesuan Trust (NFT) is an economic and political union of 2 member states, located primarily in Northern Frequesue. It was established by the Treaty of Incorporation on 4 July 2013 by the founding states San Dorado and Coilerburg. The founding rules and principles of the NFT are written down in the Statute of Investment.
The NFT operates through a hybrid system of subsidiarity and supranationalism. In certain areas it depends upon agreement between the member states. However, it also has significant supranational power, and is able to make sweeping decisions for all member governments.
Chief Executive Officer
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the most powerful office in the NFT, as the head of the Syndicate, the executive branch of the North Frequesuan Trust. The CEO's title is that of President. The President is responsible for allocating portfolios to members of the Syndicate and can reshuffle or fire them if needed. He determines the Syndicate's policy agenda and all the legislative proposals it produces.
The President is appointed by the member governments for five year terms. Once elected, the President, along with his Syndicate, is responsible to the member governments who can censure him. The current President is Sidney Hank, who took office in January 2014. Hank is the first President and has a mandate until the end of 2019.
The Syndicate is the executive branch of the NFT. The body is responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the NFT's treaties and the general day-to-day running of the Trust. The Syndicate operates in the method of cabinet government, with 27 members, whose title is that of Commissioner.
The members of the Syndicate are nominated by the President, then confirmed by the member state legislatures (respectively the San Dorado Board of Directors and the Corporate Congress of Coilerburg). Members of the Syndicate serve terms of five years each, and concern themselves with intergovernmentalist and supranationalist matters, such as economic integration, cooperation on law enforcement and justice, regional development, defence and external economic-political policy.
The Overseas Departments
The Overseas Departments consist broadly of NFT-administered territories outside of the member states. These territories have varying legal status and different levels of autonomy and reside directly under the Syndicate, although all have local representation, and the right to vote in Presidential elections. Overseas Departments have existed since 2015, when Syndicate policy dictated that Paradise be incorporated as an a Overseas Department.
From a legal and administrative standpoint, departments are very different from member states: according to the NFT Statute of Investment, member states are allowed to make their own laws, except for some specific areas (like defense, international and intracorporate relations, international trade and currency, courts and administrative law), as provided in the Statute, that are reserved to the Syndicate. The Departments however are governed by autonomy statutes that put them directly under management of the Syndicate and its local appointees. Therefore Syndicate regulations generally apply (civil code, penal code, administrative law, social laws, stockholder laws et cetera).

The City Defence Forces (short form: Citidef) is a reserve military force composed of militia members or units under nationally recognized active armed force service for the Corporate Republic of San Dorado. Their task is to assist police forces during periods of heavy urban unrest. Citidef occasionally is involved in light combat duties in support of NFA units. Citidef forces are composed of six independent mechanized battalions subordinated to the Central Command. Their equipment consists mostly of light armoured vehicles (M-113 APC, M-114 Dunecat, M-115 Antlion) and light helicopters (UH-1 Bad Penny) with some towed gun support.
Coilerburg Defence Forces
The CDF are a citizen-militia made up mainly of army veterans who now combine a military role or career with a civilian career. They are not normally kept under arms and their main role is be available to fight when a nation mobilizes for total war or to defend against invasion. CDF troops train one weekend every month. Their equipment is generally fairly top-notch, owing mostly to the fact that the disbandment of the Grand Army after the ill-fated invasion of Sabika resulted in an enormous amount of excess military materiel, which is now being employed and maintained by the CDF.
The Coilerburg Constabulary is the national gendarmerie of Coilerburg, policing both the military and civilian populations. The Constabulary is a branch of armed forces, and is technically the first corps of the Coilerburg army, although it has not fought with the army since Iler’s War. The Corps is highly visible: In times of civic unrest their distinctive blue-black uniforms are a common sight everywhere. They have a reputation for being tough but comparatively fair, although there have been notable incidents where the Constabulary have acted with what was later deemed to have been ‘excessive force’. SWAT teams, riot control teams, special crimes divisions and the Presidential honour guard are all parts of the Constabulary, as well as a Mobile Unit Division: two brigades trained specifically to deal with national emergencies.
Armed Interdiction Police
If the Constabulary Corps is generally well-liked as a tough-but-fair police force, its San Doradan equivalent is almost universally feared and loathed. Its members comprise the dreaded Armed Interdiction Police Squads, frequently simply referred to as ‘Apes’ by the populace of the Sprawl. AIP make up the special, highly mobile task forces needed to keep the peace when riots break out in San Dorado. They also provide SWAT teams and counter-terrorism units. The AIP is organized in precincts that exist distinct from the Metropolitan Police. In times of war AIP officers are mobilized to fight in the defence of the corporation, and their training looks more like that of soldiers than of police officers. The sight of them screaming through the streets on their armoured riot bikes is enough to make all but the boldest rioter turn and run.
