The Khoronzonite Armed Forces, abbreviated as the KVS, make up the Earth's largest ever military force, serving not only to defend Khoronzon and its interests from threats, but to actively extend its grasp over the world and secure the place of its people as the masters of the Earth. The KVS is highly pervasive in Khoronzonite life, glorified by active members and civilians alike as "the Hand of Destiny" that will bring about the coming Golden Age through conquest and cleansing. All Khoronzonite students undergo a two-year conscription period at the end of secondary school as part of their education, and upon completing it, they may either be assigned to full service or be placed in the reserve force; in the latter case, they are called to yearly refresher training in order to maintain their competence and militaristic devotion, and remain updated on current equipment and doctrine.

The KVS is directly controlled by the Ministry of War, with its Minister, Vasilias Lathi, holding the position of High Marshal, the highest rank for a military officer whose authority is surpassed only by Emperor Narcissus, who ultimately serves as Commander-in-Chief. It is comprised of three main branches - the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force - along with a number of lesser branches such as the Stellar Guard and cross-branch organisations such as the Promethean Circle. The Army is the largest branch by a somewhat significant margin, though the Navy and Air Force boast considerable strength as well and are major forces to be reckoned with in their respective environments.

The Khoronzonite Army is mainly built around its massive primary infantry force of Phalangium-type biosynths - purpose-bred soldier "drones" equipped with natural armour, camouflage, and weaponry, replacing most citizen personnel in unspecialised infantry roles. Despite being only subsapient, and this considerably less individually useful than conventional soldiers, the use of Cordyceps-type biosynthetic neurosymbionts grants them superhuman reaction times and group coordination, which, combined with their vast quantities and low logistical strain, more than compensates for their cognitive deficiency. Multiple Phalangium derivations exist to serve different roles, with varying weapon types, mobility, and defences, and their natural tools may be augmented or replaced with artificial components such as firearms or reinforced plating, but ultimately they all fall within the same niche of front-line footsoldiers. Humans, androids, and other construct types mainly serve in support roles or as more specialised units.
