The Washingtonian Navy (WNV) is the second largest and naval branch of the Washingtonian Armed Forces, the others being the Army and Air Force. The Navy was established in 1863, before which the small flotilla of mostly transportation vessels remained under the firm control of the then-decentralized Army. In 1863, when King George III signed off on General Mark Boyd's plan to modernize and "weaponize" an effective naval force, the "Army Naval Forces" came into being. It remained under effective Army custody thereafter, however the Navy officially became a fully independent force in 1908 when then Acting President General Abraham Quincy signed the Navy Decree.

The flotilla of the Navy consists of twelve capital ships (including four submarines) and several smaller craft, around 4,000 combatant personnel and a further 3,000 civilian personnel (most of whom work for the Defense Ministry). The aircraft carrier WNS Beauchemin is the flagship of the Navy and previously belonged to the British Navy as the HMS Invincible. She was acquired as part of a larger armament procurement transaction in mid-2005, and subsequently underwent extensive modernization and refurbishment. The Navy owns multiple jet aircraft, all of which are stationed on the Beauchemin. The Air Force is responsible for land-based military aircraft. Today, the Navy mostly handles Washingtonia's coast guard law enforcement needs, and occasionally deploys on goodwill tours and peacekeeping operations along the African West Coast.

The Navy is organized into two fleets and one further group assigned to protect the capital Foundersville. The entire force is commanded by the Commanding Admiral, currently Adm. Rhys Barby.

The commander of the CGOR is currently Commander Duncan of the House of Concord. The CGOR is based at the Naval Headquarters in Foundersville.

Naval Installations and Support (NVINS)

Naval Training (NVTRAIN)
