The Balawai militia was the Korunnai name for the law-enforcement and military forces of Haruun Kal's Representative Council government. It was a part of the Ministry of Justice, and was headquartered in the Ministry of Justice Building in Pelek Baw. As of 21.5 BBY, it was under the command of Colonel Lorz Geptun.
During the Summertime War, the militia was engaged in a protracted conflict with native Korunnai guerrillas such as the ULF, a struggle often marked with atrocities on both sides. After the end of the war, the militia remained, but was downsized and limited primarily to law enforcement. Many former militiamen joined the Republic Army to serve in the Clone Wars.
Even at the height of the Summertime War, the militia's written bylaws forbade threatening civilians.
As of 21.5 BBY, the militia forces included:
- At least 25,000 conventional troops
- At least 200 arpitroops
- At least 36 Ground Assault Vehicles
- At least 76 Turbostorm-class gunships
- DOKAWs, spy satellites, and communications satellites
- Troop shuttles
- armored groundcars
Each militia regular was equipped with Graylite body armor, a Merr-Sonn Devastator vibroknife, and a BC7 Medium Blaster Carbine. Each platoon had a MM(X), and every sixth soldier had a backpack flamethrower.
