Purpose and Task of the Military of Denmark

The purpose and task of the armed military services of Denmark is located in Landkongress Regeriet (LR) 321.586 - The Military Services Act of 2001, in force since March 1, 2001.

Its primary purpose is to prevent conflicts and war, preserve the sovereignty of Denmark, secure the continuing existence and integrity of the independent Commonwealth of Denmark and further a peaceful development in the world with respect to human rights.

According to the act, the primary task of the military is to protect the Commonwealth of Denmark and her consitutencies under any circumstances, including terrorist attacks as defined by LR 345.342 - Terrorism and Acts of Terrorism Against Denmark or her Consitutencies of 2003.

Branches of the Danish Military

Royal Danish Army — Hæren (HRN)
Royal Danish Navy — Søværnet (SVN)
Royal Danish Air Force — Flyvevåbnet (FLV)
Danish Home Guard — Hjemmeværnet (HJV)
Greenlandic Home Guard — Hjemmeværnet Grønland (HJVG)
Norwegian Home Guard —  Hjemmeværnet Norge (HJVN)
Swedish Home Guard —  Hjemmeværnet Sverige (HJVS)
Finnish Home Guard —  Hjemmeværnet Suomi (HJVSu)

Accounting for the Fiscal Year of 2007 for the Danish Ministry of Defence

The Danish military economy is the second largest economy in the Danish National Budget (under the 2006 Finance Law) with a total expenditure of 5.3% of the Danish Gross Domestic Product (GDP Adjusted for Gameplay at 22.3% decrease [total GDPs of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland]: $762.24 bn // Variance of $218.76 bn from IRL) or approximately $40.39 bn. 

Approximately 95% (or $38.37 bn) of the budget goes directly to running the Danish military including the Home guard. Depending on year, 53% (or $20.34 bn) accounts for payment to personnel, roughly 21% ($8.06 bn) on acquiring new material, 2% ($767.4 mil) for larger ships, building projects or infrastructure  and about 19% ($7.29 bn) on other items, including purchasing of goods, renting, maintenance, services and taxes.

The remaining 5% ($2.01 bn) is dedicated to maintaining the Ministry of Defence and its ministers.

Additional Income Supplement: As of 02 June 2008, the Danish Revenue Authority has published the Danish Taxation Report for 2008 revealing that it has included a new 5.2% tax for the creation of new military services.  The military's projected revenue from taxation is approximately $1,461.77 per citizen (total population of the Commonwealth: 24,526,477) or $35,852,068,284.29 (in additional revenue per year).

The new total military budget sits at approximately $72.29 billion USD per year.

According to LR 392.192 - The Military Services Enlistment Act of 2008, the Danish government no longer mandates men of the eligible ages of 18-48 to be enlisted in the active military service of the Commonwealth of Denmark, however this Act has established a 4,500 DKK sign on bonus as well as an extra 589 DKK per year in active military personnel's paychecks.

According to LR 120.39 - The Military Services and Military Selection Denmark Act of 1999, the Danish government makes it known that individuals who are between the ages of 18 and 48 may apply to be in any branch of the Danish Armed Forces or work as military personnel in offices over the age of 48.  The maximum cap year for individuals in the Danish Armed Forces is 65.  An individual who retires with the Danish Armed Forces at age 65 will receive their military paycheck for the rest of their life, plus all military benefits for spouses and children under the age of 21. 

Differences in Serving in the Danish Armed Forces and the Greenlandic Front: Per LR 495.873 - The Danish Armed Forces Act Establishing Forces in the Territory of Greenland of 2008, the Danish government will pay any Danish citizens from the States of Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, or the Territories of the Faeroe and Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands, 40,000 DKK to serve in the Greenlandic Front.  The Danish government will also relocate your family, free of charge and offers discounted lodging at the military base at Søndre Strømfjord.  Service personnel in Greenland will also receive a 1,000 DKK bonus in each paycheck as well as free travel back to your state of origin.

Differences in Serving in the Danish Armed Forces and the Finnish Front: Per SE (Suomen Eduskunta) 342 - Compulsory Military Service Act of 2001, all men and women ages 18-46 must be enlisted in the Danish Armed Forces, Finnish Front.  Failure to comply with this regulation could result in imprisonment or charge with treason.

Danish Men and Women of Eligible Age to Serve in the Armed Forces: Per LR 120.39 - The Military Services and Military Selection Denmark Act of 1999, the following figures have been declared as official for the counts of military service men for the Commonwealth of Denmark:
