With the ratification of the CSA Consitution, the CSA officially established the Christian States Armed Forces:
- Christian States Army
- Christian States Air Force
- Christian States Navy
- Christian States Marine Corps
The Christian Republican Army currently stands at around 240,000 soldiers.
The Christian Republican National Guard serves as the reserve for the armed forces and stands at around 1,900,000 men. Women are only permitted to be on the military bases as wives, daughters, aunts or as widows.
Society is reeorganized along a militarized and cult-Christian regime style of interpreting the Holy Bible. Women are only permitted to read literature that is not considered to be "anti-Christian" and in the U.S. English language while men are permitted to read foreign literature in any language. Only men along with childless unmarried women can acquire employment.
The CSA economy is a free-market economy based mostly small business, agriculture, and manufacturing. Women have no opportunity for a separate economy or authorship over the household finances; this is done simply by freezing their electronic bank accounts.
Its extremely low taxes created a misogynistic environment where the wealthy kept most of their cash to themselves and prevent laws from being passed that could have created true gender equality.
