Also not all the soldiers have white skin, I just used that skin as the majority of people have Asian characteristics and white skin but 45% of them don't and have more brownish skin and look Inuit

Every adult, including both males and females (It used to be only males), must join the military and have military training. P.E is also required for people who want to graduate high school and they must take it during all their years of school to make them fit when they will eventually join the army. At least once a month, every adult will serve in the military for a day or more, but after that, they return to their normal life and job. This has always been the North Polean way, except for the part of females having to serve too which is fairly recent. Children in schools also learn how to make guns and disassemble and rebuild them, which helps the NIU as they don’t have to buy foreign guns abroad when they can just buy them once and learn how to reproduce them. Some schools have also been introducing classes on how to make military helmets and military uniforms. The NIU also engages in gun trafficking, especially at the Alaskan border, and even though there have been efforts to stop it, it still continues. That is how so many U.S made guns get into the NIU even though the U.S does not trade much with the NIU.

Because in the early days of the NIU there were few trees (and at present there are more but still not a lot), so the NIU would go on expeditions to lands in North America that had them to get wood and they would sometimes run into conflict with the natives.
Chainmail armor is armor made from small metal rings that are linked together. It was popular through the 3rd century BC and 16th century AD. This is one of the main pieces of armor the Norse wore and it was the main armor the North Poleans wore.
Lamellar Armor is armor made from rectangle plates and could be made from a variety of materials, from steel to leather. It was worn through most of Asia and Eastern Europe. Lamellar Armor was not the main armor used but it was used by the Norse who gathered them from the Baltic lands. Some in the NIU would wear this armor and it would be seen as an elite armor.
Most Common Outfit
The most common outfit would be chainmail under a fur coat, due to the cold of the Arctic.
Snow goggles are eyewear worn by the Inuit and the Yupik peoples. They are worn to prevent snow blindness (Photokeratitis) and they were made from wood (mainly driftwood), bone, walrus ivory, and reindeer antlers. This would be worn alongside armor a lot of the time.
Norse swords looked different from other European weapons, as they tended to have a smaller handguard, but not all of them were like this. They were around 90 centimeters long and they were sometimes decorated with patterns. The hilts of the swords were in many shapes made out of metals like silver and gold and iron, bones, or antlers. The blades had blood grooves running along the middle which saved materials and made the sword lighter.
Spears were the most commonly used weapons of the Norse. Some spears were barbed spears which were spears that had what can be described as wings at the bottom of the spearhead. Spears could also be used for throwing. Most spears had a wooden shaft and the spearhead was made of metal.
Inuit spears were usually made for hunting. The tip of the spear would be made of stone, ivory, or bone. This changed when the Norse arrived and they started using Norse spears for war. They also used spear throwers made of woodThe most well-known spear the Inuit would use would be the harpoon. They had a foreshaft made of Ivory and the tip would be made of stone, ivory, bone, antler, or an animal's fang and the spear had a rope attached to it. Even when the Norse arrived harpoons would still be used for hunting fish, but the tips would be made of metal.
The Norse used bows for war and hunting and they were in the shape of a D, made from young trees. Some were 190 centimeters long and 3.8 centimeters wide. They had a single string notch cut into their right side just below the bend. The string was tied to a lower end with a complicated multiple knot. They also bent the tips of the bow which was achieved by steaming the wood. However, Inuit bows were mainly used instead due to them not being able to find most of the material used to make a Norse bow not being found there.
Some of the Inuit bows were in the shape of a C but some were in the shape of a D, It depended on the various Inuit cultures. The Inuit lacked the more elastic timber to make a bow in their climate but they were able to still make very deadly bows. Using spruce wood for the bow would not work due to it not being that elastic but it could still be used for the belly of the bow. Driftwood and animal parts were also used. The back of the bow was made of caribou sinews twisted into cables. Glue made from animals was used to attach the sinews to the back of the bow. Due to the mechanical properties of the sinew-backed bow, it needed frequent adjustments. This could have been done by twisting the backing tables using short rods of wood or animal material like bone or ivory. These unique bows were powerful enough to kill a polar bear.
The arrows were also unique as they could kill little animals without leaving much of a hole in them. Arrows used to be made from sharp animal parts and the heads were decorated and the size of the arrow depended on what you were trying to kill.
Axes were basically just a wooden pole with a pointy edge made from metal, that mainly being iron. Most axes were just used for cutting down trees but some were used for combat. Some axes were also decorated.
These knives could be in numerous different shapes but had a wooden handle and a blade, some bigger than others.
Inuit Snow Knifes
The Inuit snow knife gets its name as it is what the inuit used to make igloos. Before the arrival of the norse the edge of the snow knife was made from bone or horns.
These shields were made of thin planking which formed the circular shape of the shield and a dome in the middle made of iron These shields were also mounted alongside ships. They would also be commonly decorated. These shields were usually 80-90 centimeters long in diameter. Sometimes these shields would also be covered in animal skin.
Norse Longships were 65 feet wide and weighed 20 tons. They were long, narrow, and wide and built for speed. They went from 30-35 kilometers per hour. These were some of the fastest ships for their time.
The Uniforms from 1455 from 1803 were a white waistcoat, black coat, and red hand bands, and a black beret. Later on in the 1600s, Tricornes were worn and military generals started wearing wigs. Uniforms from 1455-1922 were not commonly worn in the NIU and traditional Inuit fur coats were preferred due to the cold environment of the arctic. However, I will be showing the uniforms that were worn when the weather was right anyways.
NIU model 1512
The NIU model 1512 was a flintlock pistol that was 14 inches long. It could shoot up to 82 yards. Over the years this gun was improved upon to shoot further.
NIU Cannon model 1532
This was a cannon that could shoot at 750 yards but usually shot at 467 yards. It was 3 feet and 670 pounds. When there were other cannons made after this it would usually fire at 1,000 yards until the cannon made in 1798.

NIU model 1665
This was a shorter musket that was 35 inches with a short barrel. It however could shoot a target a maximum of 150 yards but usually shot at 87 yards away and it replaced the model 1555 until 1801. There were a lot of advancements to this gun up until 1801 where it was replaced.
NIU Cannon model 1798
This cannon weighed 1,587 pounds, 5 feet, and shot at a distance of 2,823 yards, very far for its time.
NIU model 1801
This was a flintlock musket that, if the marksmen was trained well enough, could shoot to 900 yards. It was 44 inches long.
As with the previous section, traditional Inuit fur coats were mostly worn but these were some of the uniforms worn when the weather was right.
Military Uniforms from 1807-1820
These uniforms were inspired by the Napoleonic era but did not last long. They were like the uniforms from 1455, they had a black coat with a white waistcoat underneath. The generals wore tricornes with a wig, while normal soldiers just wore a black beret.
Thor's Thunder was a blunderbuss invented in 1802, there were previous ones made but none as powerful as this one. It shot up to a range at 60 yards. It was 30 inches long.
Military Uniforms from from 1820-1920
They wore a warm black cotton wool-padded jacket, with a Shako, sometimes with or without a red feather. Black berets and black ushankas were also worn. These were worn more commonly as they were warmer than previous uniforms. General wore bicornes with no wig or gold, unlike previous uniforms. Wearing gold was especially controversial as it symbolized someone of a higher status and that was seen as too feudal. They finally got rid of them in 1820.

The NIU1911 is a recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol that uses the .45 ACP cartridge and is 7.5 inches long. It was made in 1911. It is based on the Colt 1911, but with some changes. It shoots 55 meters. It holds 7 rounds. This weapon would be used by the NIU unit 2003. As time goes on there would be different variants of this gun.

Military Uniforms from 1920-1970
NIU military uniforms consisted of a black helmet, a black webbing harness, and a white cotton wool-padded jacket. It would also sometimes use a helmet called the shell helmet (and you will see later in 2000 there would be another helmet made with this same name). The outfit also came with a hood.

Introduction to the modern military
The NIU has a small military of 10,000 people. Everyone in the NIU has military training at some point in their life, but unlike most military training, it only lasts for 6-ours each day and you are allowed to go home once you are done with the 6-hour training. The members of the military route every month. There are almost no restrictions on weapons that the public can have except for nuclear and chemical weapons. You can own a tank or a fighter jet if you wanted to. People also learn how to make guns in school and some schools have introduced making military helmets as well. Also, reserves are a bit different than other reserves as the reserves will be doing their normal jobs and be called into action if there is a war. Soldiers are very rigorously trained and a lot of them believe that if they die they will go to Valhalla so they do not fear death, so they are willing to fight to the death and have a sense of honor. You will see all the military unifroms for each branch under the military uniform section.
The Army has 5,000 troops and 25,000 in reserve. One thing one must do is be in the arctic water for 20 seconds, be pepper sprayed, and be trained in combat and NIU martial arts.
The Navy has 2,000 troops and 15,000 in reserve. One thing one must do is similar to the army but you also have to swim in frozen water.
The Air force has 2,000 troops and 15,000 I'm reserve. The training is far less brutal than the other units. You mainly just need to know martial arts and how to fly.
Stealth Special Unit.
The SSU has 1,000 troops with 8,000 in reserve. There are many sub branches like the navy and airforce and the training is the most painful. One of the things all must do to become a member is be shot in the leg to know the pain of being shot. This branch was made in 2000.
The standard uniform is called the “NIU Combat Uniform” and protects the wearer very well from the conditions of the arctic. They wear two helmets, the shell helmet which is a small helmet that is able to fit the wearer's head and a helmet on top that comes from Canada called the “CG634 helmet”. They also wear a mask and goggles called the “Nanook’s protecting mask and Goggles” or the “NGPMG178”, however a normal arctic resistant white mask and goggles are also worn, and sometimes a hood is also worn.
The CG634 was made in 1997, the NIU Combat Uniform and the shell helmet were invented in 2000, and the NGPMG178 was made in 2006.
This is the uniform for the army and sometimes the navy.
The outfit on the very right shows the shell helmet and the NGPMG178.
This is the uniform for the airforce branch, it comes in white, green, and black. White is used when it’s cold and green when it is warmer. The black one is used by the Special Stealth Unit (SSU).

The Sedna 2000 Cruiser is 230,000 pounds and it goes 70 km/h and it was made in 2000.
The Urban Uniform is made for Urban combat. The name of this uniform is called the “NIU Urban Combat Uniform” and “NIU Urban Combat Helmet”. This uniform was invented in 2005. This is a uniform for the army branch.
It isn’t always snowing in the NIU so there have been uniforms made to blend in with the grass and dirt. This uniform is called the “NIU Natural Combat Uniform”. The grass in the NIU usually isn’t that green so neither is the uniform. This uniform also uses a USA “ECH” or a “NIU Dent Helmet”. They also wear a tactical mask and goggles. The “NIU Natural Combat Uniform” was made in 2000, along with the Dent Helmet. The “ECH” was in service in the USA in 2012 and it was smuggled into the NIU. These are uniforms for the army branch, except for the one pilot uniform you will see which is for the air force.
The NIU Dent Helmet is the uniform on the far left and right.
Special Stealth UnitUniform
The “NIU Special Stealth UnitUniform” is called just that. They are used by a specially trained unit that is very well trained in stealth and combat. They wear the “NIU Stealth Uniform'' and a black CG634 along with a tactical mask and goggles. This uniform is used by the SSU.
The Sniper Uniform either consists of a white or brown ghillie suit or the “NIU Arctic Conditioned Sniper Unifrom”. The “NIU Arctic Conditioned Sniper Uniform” was made in 2003. This uniform is used by the army and sometimes the navy.
NIU Arctic Conditioned Uniform on the far right.
