RANK STRUCTURE:
The State of Heraklea is a multi-stellar nation ruled by constitutional stratocracy.  As a result of the military society that the modern state has become, the entire population exists within a rank structure.  At the top of society and the height of political power are the flag officers.  Beneath them are the non-flag commisioned and warrant officers, then senior non-coms, junior noncoms, and junior rates (the term “rate” is used in place of where most states would use the term “enlisted” as no one enlists in the system).  The system of warrant officers run parallel with non-flag officers up to the rank of captain.  The rank system of the state goes as follows:

GradeRankGradeRank
O-16Grand Admiral
O-15High Admiral
O-14Fleet Admiral
O-13Admiral
O-12Vice Admiral
O-11Rear Admiral

Flag ranks (with the exception of the Grand Admiral) are further subdivided into a system of seniority with flag officers "of the Red" over "of the White" over "of the Black."

Rating System:

The "Rates," Heraklean citizens of equivalent rank to "enlisted" in foreign militaries or "working class" in the civilian sectors, are divided into a variety of job specialties called "ratings."  Not every rate has a rating, but a rating is required to advance past "Leading Rate" and become a non-commissioned officer.  The following is a list of ratings of the State of Heraklea:
