Interactive map of active military personnel in each country. Supported countries only.

The number of military personnel on active duty that are currently serving full-time in their military capacity.

Military service is service by an individual or group in an army or other militia, whether as a chosen job or as a result of an involuntary draft. A nation with a fully volunteer military does not normally require mandatory military service from its citizens, unless it is faced with a recruitment crisis during a time of war.
