The Augustin Alliance Joint Task Force, or JTF, is the military and diplomatic branch of the AA, with contributing nations from all four member regions. It is headed by the Director, followed by the appointed Lt. Director. Unlike raiding and defending organizations, the JTF is neutral (sometimes labeled "independent"). It serves to further the interests of AA regions in foreign lands through the use of force. It may raid or defend, conduct diplomacy missions, or assist developing regions, depending on the needs of the region and the discretion of the command.

The JTF is a gameplay organization, which means it is completely separate from roleplay. In other words, it is not affected by any nation's statistics, factbooks, or forum posts. Instead, military gameplay centers around regions, and is the closest thing to a war feature that NationStates offers players. For information, see this thread, or send a telegram to an officer. Sound interesting so far? Keep reading!
