The Holy See lies in Saint Basilsburg, the capital of Jinavia. Being a part of Imperium, its military defense is provided by the whole military of Jinavia. However, the Jinavian Church still retains some military units, in order to ensure its autonomous protection and foreign actions.
The command is exercised by the Captain General of the Church, usually a retired (but he can also be formally assigned to the duty) General or Flag Officer of Imperial Armed Forces, assisted by the General Staff of the Church Militias, provided by the Military of Jinavia.
The current Captain General of the Church is the Lord Marshal of the Empire (retired) Baron Karl Maria Gonzaga-Krauf, while the Chief of Staff of the Church Militias is the Brigadier General Pietro Colonna.
