Paramilitaries


The Banners of Kheshiga (kashuns) are rural and sparsely populated special administrative divisions with substantial autonomy. They are a political concession to the mostly nomadic freedom fighters from the Eastern Alliance and Karashor Confederacy. The government grants grazing rights, unrestricted travel outside of special military corridors, and guaranteed housing for ethnic Turks and Mongols within each banner.

The Noyan families, descended from the generals and military leaders of the Eastern Alliance and Karashor Confederacy, rule the banners, electing a military governor from among their own for a 10 year term. That individual, known as a marshal, answers only to the Khan.

Each Banner has a regiment of soldiers, functioning as gendarmeries, border guards, and general security forces.
