The Electorate of Styrland, located in northern Unkerlant, has a great military tradition. Upon returning from the Crusades, the Prince Zlobo, inspired by the military Orders he witnessed in the Holyland, built the first military academy in Unkerlant. The Unkerlant Military Academy for Martial Prowess and Study was built. Every Unkerlantian general worth mention, both good and bad, has walked its halls. Unfortunately, due to Unkerlant’s chronic xenophobia, most new ideas that would normally flow into the country via foreign literature or military thinkers, never make it across the border. So, Unkerlant is a bit behind the times in military matters.
Despite this, Styrland is full of martial pride, and almost daily military parades are held in both Veckholm and Asstryia, overseen by Elector General Freidemene of Asstryia.
In battle, Styriland troops look magnificent with their parade ground precision and resplendent uniforms. If only their fighting capabilities matched their looks.
