- De-facto motto of the Republic of Korea.
We are the Republic of Korea (Korean: 대한민국), also known as Unified Korea, a sovereign state located in East Asia. Under the leadership of President Jong Jin-park, The Republic of Korea is officially a unitary presidential constitutional republic. Following the constitution of the Republic, the free and democratic rights of the Korean Race will be protected and enforced.
Korea enjoys being one of the most powerful nations in Asia, and the Korean people enjoying a high standard of living and a stable capitalist economy. The People and Korean nation are protected by the Republic of Korea Armed Forces, who will do their duty to defend the liberties and freedom of the Korean Peninsula.
Formerly, the Korean Peninsula was divided in two by the Korean Demilitarized Zone, with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea set in the north and the Republic of Korea in the South from 1949 to 2015. After the Korean Revolution of 2012-15, the DPRK's Juche government was overthrown and a unified Korean nation was formed, under a democratic government.
Following the collapse of the imperialist government in neighboring Japan, the Republic of Korea launched a full scale military operation and de-facto annexed the island nation. Previously enemies, Japan and Korea are now best friends and work together to accomplish their goals.
Republic of Korea Armed Forces (대한민국 국군)
The Republic of Korea Armed Forces is the military force of the Republic of Korea. Created in 1948 following the division of Korea from North and South, the military was always put on high alert in case of a DPRK invasion or attack. The Armed Forces has seen much action in the past years, from the Korean War to Vietnam to the Gulf War, aswell as the ever lasting war on terror.
The Republic of Korea armed forces boasts a total of 1.1 Million active personnel from all branches. The Republic of Korea Reserve Force boasts 4.5 Million reserve and paramilitary personnel. They are citizens and conscripts, who work both a civilian career and a military career. If Korea mobilizes for Total War, the Reserve Force will answer the call to defend the Korean nation and race.
The primary mission of the Republic of Korea Armed Forces is to:
- Conduct military operations to commence either offensive or defensive strategies
- Turn the tide of combat in favor of the Korean nation
- Protect the harmonious and sacred beliefs of the Korean people
- Conduct humanitarian aid and disaster-relief missions in the event of catastrophic disasters, prevent and halt traitorous and intolerable terriorist attacks on the Korean homeland, to defend the sovereign rights of the people and to serve justice to those who have been condemned
- Deploy troops to other unstable nations and war zones to help establish solid peace and deter any major conflict
- Protect Korea's electronic hardware from hackers and foreign forces with the assistance and guidance of the Republic of Korea Cyberwarfare Command
- Protect and secure the land, maritime and airspace borders of Korea
The Republic of Korea Navy (Korean: 대한민국 해군) is the official naval force of the Republic of Korea. They are instructed to carry out missions to defend the nation against the enemy, to protect and enforce maritime law, anti-piracy and maritime border protection.
The ROKN is steadily becoming a powerful force to be reckoned with. Far from a world power, but enough to deter potential enemy attackers. Fielding modern ship classes and modern weaponry, they are capable of rivaling the world's most powerful navies. They won't be afraid to defend Korea's waters.

Republic of Korea Army Special Warfare Command (대한민국 육군 특수전사령부)
The Republic of Korea Army Special Warfare Command is the military command of the Republic of Korea Army responsible for special operations and warfare that is out of reach of the Army. The ROK-SWC is also known as the "Black Berets", noting the black berets that are worn by ROK-SWC operators. The Black Berets were mainly inspired by the U.S. Army Special Forces "Green Berets", and would work in conjunction with them - mainly to deter the former DPRK's militaristic actions.
The Black Berets previously had a known size of around 10,000 personnel. However, after the fall of the DPRK that number would soon grow. The former DPRK's Korean People's Army Special Operations Force had a staggering 180,000 personnel, however when the DPRK regime fell most were either pressed into ROK-SWC service or were retrained. Now the ROK-SWC has a size of around 92,000 personnel, however the exact number is kept a closely guarded secret by the Korean government.
The ROK-SWC worked with the United States Forces in Korea (USFK) for many years until the fall of the DPRK. The aftermath brought a strong anti-American sentiment within the new unified Korean population, which lead to the United States pulling out all military personnel and equipment from the Korean Peninsula. The former U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps bases are now utilized by the Republic of Korea Armed Forces. The Japan Self-Defense Force also maintains and uses the installations as well.
The Republic of Korea Special Warfare Command ranks as one of the most secretive units in Korea, the National Intelligence Service taking the crown of 1st place. However the ROK-SWC is second in terms of how much of their info is classified and protected by the government. Not much is known about the personnel themselves, but it is rumored that they are trained chiefly in unconventional warfare tactics such as:
- Direct action.
- Special reconnaissance.
- Information operations.
- Guerrilla warfare.
- Hostage rescue.
- Fire support.
While unconventional warfare tactics makes up the majority of a ROK-SWC operator's training, this doesn't mean that they lack in the field of conventional warfare as well. The ROK-SWC is ranked as being one of the most dangerous special operations unit in Korea, even "out ranking" the ROK Navy SEALS and the ROK Airborne Troops. However this doesn't mean that the ROK-SWC's "rivals" are weak. Training to become an ROK-SWC operator includes 7 months of intense training, which includes a 7 week period known as "Hell Training" for its near impossible and insane requirements. A 72 mile march within 24 hours is expected.
ROK-SWC operators are also tested in different hostage scenarios, such as torture and interrogation. This is the period when most recruits want to drop out. If you passed, the operator will be sent to remote islands to learn survival skills and guerrilla warfare.
The ROK-SWC is mainly conducting surveillance (in conjunction with the NIS) on potential enemies of Korea, unstable countries or countries currently at war. They are instructed to study the enemy's every intent and action, thus why they have earned their reputation for being the best of the best in Korea, and possibly Asia. Due to their experience with counter-terrorism operations the ROK Army Command will most likely deploy ROK-SWC units to countries who are labeled as state sponsors of terrorism (check foreign relations tab).
In conclusion, the Republic of Korea Army Special Warfare Command "Black Berets" is a formidable force, crewed by Korea's finest soldiers and operators. They stand ready to defend the freedom and liberties of the Korean people and nation, and will not cease their operations until either the enemy submits, or is destroyed. Approach like a Ghost, Strike like Thunder, Vanish like Smoke.
Republic of Korea Air Force (대한민국 공군)
The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) is the official aerial warfare service branch of the Republic of Korea Armed Forces. It is comprised of 200,000 active personnel, citizen/employees, air guards and 3,500 aircraft. The ROK Air Force pledges to protect Korea's airspace, to conduct close air support, cyberwarfare operations, missile defense, search and rescue and humanitarian aid.
The Air Force has also seen its' share of engagements, from the Korean War to the global war on terrorism. The current Air Force Chief of Staff is General Jeong Kyung-doo. Notable commanders include Chang Sung-hwan, from 1962-1964. The current Commander-in-Chief is President Jong Jin-park.
National Intelligence Service (국가정보원)
The National Intelligence Service is the Republic of Korea's most secretive and mysterious service branch. They are tasked with gathering intelligence, to counter enemy intelligence, to counter-espionage, conduct surveillance, cyber warfare and protect the sovereign rights of the Korean people. Established in 1961, it was first known as the Korean Central Intelligence Agency from 1961 to 1981. It was then renamed the Agency for National Security Planning from 1981 to 1999, when it was bestowed it's current name.
They are not afraid to use force to make potential enemies disappear without a trace. To help fight the global threat of piracy, crime and espionage, the agency does whatever it can to thwart their opponents. These actions conducted by the agency has led to their spotty track record throughout the past years.
It is estimated that there are 51,000 employees currently working for the NIS. The NIS itself is based off of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States of America, and their motives are somewhat similar to theirs aswell. The NIS carries out many operations, the majority of them being covert and clandestine. It is highly speculated that the NIS conducts heavy internet surveillence operations on the population, as well as domestic surveillance on people.
This has been heavily debated for many years, since 2012. President Jong Jin-park has refused to give a direct statement on the matter, however he has stated once in an interview that the NIS is "the most secretive agency in the world. They gather what information they can, when they need it.".
Controversially, the NIS has been accused in the past for spying on Korea's neighboring nations as well. The NIS has also been accused of abducting people they consider "high value targets" and imprisoning them for long periods of time.
This lack of trust shown within the agency and the overall negative opinion that the Korean people hold against the NIS has brought up possible option of dissolving the agency altogether. However, President Park has not spoken about that subject since 2016 and it appears the NIS is here to stay for now. It has been stated by the President that he intends to "fix the problems that the NIS currently has", possibly hinting a "purge" within the NIS ranks.
Agents carry a K5 pistol as a sidearm, with weapons like the K17, K17A and K9 reserved for organized raids and other combat operations. The vehicle fleet consistes of black, armored SUVs and sedans, most of them manufactured by Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz. Helicopters are also used by the NIS. The agency is headed by the mysterious Director Lee, who is only known by that name. His personal details remain unknown, except that he has headed the NIS since 2007.
The current mission of the NIS is, as stated:
- Collection, coordination, and distribution of information on the nation's strategy and security.
- Maintenance of documents, materials, and facilities related to the nation's classified information.
- Investigation of crimes affecting national security, such as the Military Secrecy Protection Law, the National Security Law.
- Investigation of crimes related to the missions of NIS staff.
- Planning and coordination of information and classified.
The Republic of Korea will join coalitions to help stop major threats, to build friendly relations or to gain military advantages whenever possible.
Allies of the Republic of Korea have been specifically chosen by the President himself. This should be taken as a great honor, as Korea does not simply choose random nations as allies. Allies of Korea will be fully respected, and Korea expects to be treated likewise. Political views between Korea and her allies are not shared.

- Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
- United Mexican States
- Japan (de-facto puppet state)
- State of Israel

State Sponsors of Terrorism
State Sponsors of Terrorism is the term applied to nations by the government of the Republic of Korea who blatantly show support, endorse or promote domestic and global terrorism. This term was borrowed from the United States in order to designate countries who are a threat to global peace and security.
This term is also applied to nations who have unstable leaders and governments who commit human rights abuses and crimes against humanity on their own population or to people abroad.
