A military organization under the direct command of Japan's Defence Ministry. Triggered by military conflict between China and Vietnam over the Spratleys in 2003, it was formed by the Japanese government which had no military force of its own (the ground, naval and air divisions of the original Japan Self Defense Force had all been incorporated into the UN Military). In episode 25' "Air", under orders from the Japanese government, the JSSDF committed roughly an entire division in an attempt to directly occupy NERV.
