The New England Defense Force (NEDF) is the national armed forces of the New England Republic, and consists of the Army, Air Force and Coast Guard. The President is the commander-in-chief, however, it would be custom for the Prime Minister to control the military and its operations during time of war. It is however one of the President's few executive privileges to have ultimate authority over the Defense Force.

The President with advice from the Prime Minister and House of Delegates appoints a Chairman of the Defense Council as the day-to-day manager of the NEDF. The Chairman, in turn, then appoints the chiefs of the three service branches. The Minister of Defense controls the administrative, civilian side of the NEDF. Parliament, as with all other departments, controls the Defense Force in the sense that it can cut off funding at any time or impeach any of its commanders, from the President to a normal squad leader.

As a general rule, the Defense Force would never invade another nation. New England's pacifist personality ensures the NEDF remain within New England as a purely self-defense organization. It can, however, be deployed when assisting allies abroad.
