The National Defense Readiness Condition System (or NDRCS) is the Amissopian equivalent to the U.S. DEFCON system. It is a measure of how prepared government agencies should be for potential threats to the Federation.
There are five levels. The Federation can only be within one level at a time, and may be moved between the five levels by discretion of the Minister for the Interior.
Currently, the Federation is at NDRCS Level Five. There is no current threat to the nation, and usual levels of caution and preparedness should be maintained.
- NDRCS Level One: There is an immediate and grave threat to the nation, and all resources must be mobilised immediately to prevent against the total destruction of the Federation.
- NDRCS Level Two: The nation is in clear danger. Total destruction of the Federation is unlikely, but nevertheless government agencies should be on high alert and be prepared to mobilise resources on short notice.
- NDRCS Level Three: There is a confirmed threat against the nation. Government agencies should be prepared to mobilise resources within a few days in the event that the threat becomes urgent.
- NDRCS Level Four: A threat cannot be ruled out. Elevated levels of preparedness and caution should be exercised by government agencies.
- NDRCS Level Five: There is no present threat to the nation. Usual levels of preparedness and caution should be exercised by government agencies, but normal operation of the government should continue.
