The Labuepé Armed Forces were formed in 1781 by Bembowvowe Litokqkobémwvéwvébé III during the coup against Callid. The only branches at the time, the Democratic Army of Labuepé (Demokratik Makomédé de Labuepé) and the Democratic Navy of Labuepé (Demokratik Makomédétridénéyhifé de Labuepé) were relatively powerful, especially the Democratic Army of Labuepé, which was outstanding at combat in the rainforest, which is where it was mostly seen fighting. The navy had started out great, possesing many captured foreign vessels, however the navy was disbanded in 1785 due to it's extremely weakened state after the revolution, and was costly in the Labuepé'ée Civil War, due to the unimportance of naval warfare in the civil war.
In 1804 after the Labuepé'ée Civil War ended, the Labuepé Navy (Labuepé Makomédétridénéyhifé) was officially established using captured foreign vessels, but had developed their own ships in the years following. The Democratic Army of Labuepé would also be renamed to the Labuepé Army (Labuepé Makomédé) in 1804. The navy would never create ships that were great, and would never become a very powerful branch of the army. The Labuepé Marine Corps was also formed in 1804 under the navy, however, in 1917 it became seperate from the Navy.
In 1910, famous Labuepé'ée scientist Dridtuewvepeukadaro Alkadir Muhammadu Qeirenébeirekh would start creating concepts for many planes, and tried to create a plane a monoplane that could fly a distance longer than 10km. His first monoplane, the Qeirenébeirekh III he created was flown for the first time in 1912, and had flown 25km. This flight became famous across Labuepé. Qeirenébeirekh was able to create the Qeirenébeirekh Flight Engineering Company, which the government took interest in, even after the presidency was abolished. In 1917, Qeirenébeirekh Flight Engineering and the Labuepé Government had started working together to create combat worthy planes. The many engineers that worked on these many planes, most notably Qeirenébeirekh, Aran, Markos, and Jovanović, were all amazing at aerospace engineering. In 1920, the Official Labuepé Air Force (Labuepé Makodémé Éiro Lafficialé) was established, along with the government owned Labuepé Arms Organisation, and supported by the Labuepé Arms Organization and Qeirenébeirekh Flight Engineering Company. The Official Labuepé Air Force had established a great name for itself in the mid 20th century with their amazing engineering, and their great reputation is still alive today.
Prime Minister Muhrazaini Ejiguwagayé created a paramilitary force in 1948 that was named the Special Police (Taipégoré Qifoum). The paramilitary force was very popular in parliament, especially with the more right wing parties. However in the 60s, the Special Police became controversial after Ejiguwagayé's career became very disliked. People argued that the Special Police were deployed too often, and had created police brutality. In 1971, Prime Minister Kaleb Ormo had created the Ministry of Homeland Security and the Labuepé Coast Guard (Labuepé Koh Kagaré), as well as renaming the Special Police to the Labuepé National Guard (Labuepé Taihurdik Kagaré). The Coast Guard and National Guard would become reserve branches of the Labuepé Armed Forces. The Labuepé National Guard has been used only for extreme situations inside the Labuepé borders.
Today, the Labuepé Armed Forces is focused on growing so that they can contribute to overseas conflicts that the Labuepé government believes should be intervened.

The 2nd Constitution establishes that the Prime Minister has the most power in the Armed Forces, however the Parliament is the only one able to decide any major military actions such as declaring or concluding war. The Prime Minister appoints a Chief Commander General that shares nearly the same power as the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister also appoints a Secretary of Homeland Security that manages the reserve branches of the Armed Forces.
The Chief Commander General and Prime Minister have power over all the military branches of the armed forces, however, the Chief Commander General must appoint a Chief Commander of each military branch.
The Chief Commander General is the head of the Joint Chief Commanders Council. The Joint Chief Commanders Council (KKPJ) is a council consisting of the Prime Minister, the Chief Commander General, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Chief Commanders of every military branch (the Chief Commander of the Army, the Chief Commander of the Navy, the Chief Commander of the Air Force, and the Commander of the Marine Corps). The KKPJ is responsible for planning and coordinating operations for the Armed Forces. The KKPJ meets in the La Solandé in Litokqkobémwvéwvébémiji.
