The Kazulian Navy (Kazulianisk: Marinen) is the naval arm of the Kazulian Armed Forces. It is considered the third largest arm of the Kazulian Armed Forces behind the Home Guard and the Army. While Kazulia is proud of its land combat traditions, it cannot be neglected that they have developed naval traditions over the course of their history. Today the Kazulian Navy focuses on protection of Kazulian interest at home and abroad.

The Kazulian Navy in the modern era was once considered the pride of the former armed forces, this was due to Kazulia being seafaring people since the settlement of the first Kazulians on the Western Coast. Over the past several centuries focus has been shifted from naval warfare to the land component of the armed forces. The Kazulian Navy does however remain among the leader in retention rates for men and women signing profession contracts and it remains one of the largest fleets in Dovani. Through the early 41st century the Kazulian Navy underwent rapid modernisation by the Department of Defence, it would undergo massive modernisation several more times before coming to its resting state currently.

The Kazulian Navy is headed by the Inspector-General of Kazulian Navy (Kazulianisk: Inspektør-Generalsekretær av Marinen) who is head of Kazulian Naval High Command (Kazulianisk: Kazul Maritimt Kommandoen). The Inspector-General is typically granted the rank of Admiral (Kazulianisk: Admiral) but has, at several times of great conflict or strife, been granted the prestigious rank of Admiral of the Fleet (Kazulianisk: Admiral av Flåte). Kazulian Naval Command is the day to day operator and planner of the navy and models itself very closely after the Defence Council.

The Kazulian Navy is headquartered at Joint Defence Command Headquarters in Skalm. It is commanded by an Inspector-General who commands Naval Command.
