Advanced warfare is defined as a war in which The Dictatorship is playing a mainly defensive role.

Def-Con xXx is a localized Defensive Condition level and has only been used on a national scale in one incident.

Def-Con 10, referred to as the "Absence Protocol" is the Defensive Condition that is set when The Dictatorship has lost no less than sixty percent (60%) of its military and law enforcement personnel. Upon reaching Defensive Condition Level Ten, the remainder of The Dictatorship's nuclear fission missiles, nuclear fusion missiles, and Neutron missiles would be launched at all non-ally nations' capital cities as well as all non-ally nations' ten (10) most highly populated cities. The remainder of The Dictatorship's biological missiles, chemical missiles, and bio-chemical missiles would be launched at and detonated randomly in all non-ally nations' airspace.
