Caluran Municipal Troop by Pyrosity Caluran Municipal Troop by Pyrosity
The Calur Confederacy's equivalent of the national guard, municipal troops serve as the primary form of lawkeeping and internal security throughout the Confederacy. Whenever able, they are trained by an advisor from Frontrange, and share some of the same equipment - having bought most of it from Frontrange or Balor in the first place. They are not as heavily armed and armored as Frontrangers, and units often vary between experienced veterans and raw recruits - but they are more than able to keep peace in the nation they hold so dear.

Calur is not only the largest nation of the modern world in area, but it is also one of the youngest. Born from the fires of civil and inter-colonial war between what were once colonies of Balor, Rossent, and Daube, the region declined into such a complex and volatile power struggle that the parent nations of the Old World abandoned it entirely. It was just 50 years ago that Calur was able to finally raise one flag in unison.

In the aftermath of these wars, Calur's military forces were exhausted, their many highways mined and broken, and their once impressive cities even now still have areas of ruined urban rubble. Unable to afford cleaning up its own mess, Calur's saving grace is her expansive steppe and plateau farmlands, which provide her with a surplus of food and other crop resources. Calur formed close ties with her southern neighbor, Frontrange, to exchange this surplus for military aid in both defending the nation from possible invation from Koshya via Anchortop, as well as deterring raiding parties, bandits, and privateers of the Soaring Heights native lands.

Despite the troubles the Calur Confederacy faces, it remains an extremely ambitious nation, expanding its borders westward with fervent vigor and looking to the development of cutting edge technology to further its goals to become a leading world power. The people of Calur believe in their divine right to a destiny of imperial scale.
