Glorified Warlords, most of the regional governments (except for Beijing) are like mini dictatorships, I don't trust the military so I put my money on the Royal Guard which are the only military force completely loyal to the Beijing Royal Government. Corruptions are an endemic plague on military funds so a lot of the army is underfunded and understocked.

My Integrity levels are dropping, and Corruption beginning to take root, so I too need to weed out the bugs.
