The Metaparliament Defence Force is the military organisation charged with protecting the constituents of the Metaparliament. While the MDF is officially an enormous military force, 99% of their number is comprised of inactive reserve units.
The Metaparliament has maintained military forces ever since its foundation more than four thousand years ago. However, until 4012, only 307 years ago, the only centrally-controlled military that the Metaparliament had were the Avendins, an elite corps of manufactured spirit-robots that never numbered more than 100,000. In 4012, a centralised military structure was created to supercede the almost entirely decentralised ad-hoc local defence forces. However, the centralised military was to remain small.
The MDF is an all-volunteer military force and has been since its creation. Generally, the MDF has been comprised almost entirely out of inactive reservists with a small corps of permanently-deployed elite spirit-soldiers.
Currently, the MDF has few operations.
