Country Overview

Himaldesh is a large neutrally aligned growing constitutional democracy in Asia. Himaldesh is recognised as a nuclear-armed state with a large and capable military. Whilst neutrally aligned on the world stage, Himaldesh has recently begun to court partnerships with the West, whilst continuing to engage with non-Western powers like Donovia. This provides Himaldesh with potential advantages in countering Olvanan influence in the region.

Country Capabilities



The Himaldesh Army (HA) is by far the largest component of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Himaldesh (AFRH). The HA currently consists of 1.8M active duty personnel and approximately 980,000 reserve personnel. The HA is organised into five regional commands (Northern, Central, Western, Eastern, and Southern). Additional ground forces that can fall under the HA command includes the Himaldesh Roads Group (HRG), paramilitary forces, armed police and border guard forces. The HA is a generally well-equipped force with relatively modern equipment of 20 to 30 years old. The HA regularly conducts multi-lateral exercises with regional neighbours to enable interoperability. This has enabled the HA to be a capable cutting-edge force in Southern Asia.
