The Mervustan Militia is the military unit based in the Province of Mervustan, and is commanded by the Governor of Mervustan, currently Doros Patusky since 19 September 2021. The militia was formed by the joint prerogative of Doros Patusky, the then First Secretary of State in the national cabinet, and Evan Irwin, also known as Viscount Mervustan, the incumbent Prime Minister of Mervustan at the time.
The idea of a military unit in the most important and strategic province of Roscamistan was brought up by Doros Patusky as he wanted to do reforms in many aspects, especially the Defence Forces. Over a small period in September 2021, he tried to get people to help him. He got the help of the Prime Minister of the province, Evan Irwin. However, one of the main problems to this was that James Irwin, Evan’s brother, was opposed to the idea of a large military unit so close to him. Eventually James Irwin saw the benefits over the downsides, and joined the unit upon its creation on 19 September 2021. Due to his work keeping Mervustan loyal to the Central Government, Patusky became the first Governor of Mervustan. He made his position of Commander of the militia an ex officio role of the Governor.
The unit is commanded ex officio by the Governor of Mervustan, with the Lieutenant Governor of Mervustan as his lieutenant. The militia is ultimately under the control of the Ministry of Defence. The Chief of the Defence Staff gives orders to the militia commander when necessary.
