@DeadBeatWalking@TheSovereignGraveI mean, I was maybe toying with the idea of going a mediterranean route initially and using the ancient greeks as a model for some of my nation, who had legitimate military academies. I changed my mind before I read that bit, but I didn't know my initial idea would have been outlandish or odd, say.
Gonna be perfectly honest here, my original comment about outlandishness was just a joke. I actually agree that it's not that odd.
EDIT: Plus I have about as much actual authority as anyone else.
