Episode

The DOOP Army (sometimes known as the Earth Army) is the protector of all members of the Democratic Order of Planets, such as Earth. Its motto is "Join the Army, What Are You Chicken?". The Army is often led by legendary 25 Star General Zapp Brannigan and doesn't seem to care about human life, sending wave after wave of its troops to their deaths on often fruitless missions based on decisions that arguably lack tactical credibility.

Troops

Men can sign up and drop out at any time, unless, of course, war is declared. Women, however, were forbidden to join the Army before 3008, as they had been known to distract male soldiers, specifically Zapp, with their uniforms. It is likely this restriction has been dropped, though, as two female soldiers are seen on board the Nimbus during the anti-tentacle blockade of Earth. Earthican Robots are implanted with a Patriotism Circuit, which, in case of emergencies, can be activated, forcing them to serve the DOOP Military. The DOOP Army Soldiers wear green uniforms whilst battling on ground, and red uniforms (similar to those of Zapp and Kif Kroker) whilst fighting in space. The troops also get a 5% discount at Earthican stores.

Weapons

The primary assault weapon used for ground troops is a type of laser gun requiring a Jack-In-The-Box style wind-up charging. This charging comes complete with music. The Commander of the Army, Zapp Brannigan, has access to Earth's missiles and other weapons ready to be used during an invasion. The flagship Nimbus is another powerful resource.

Members

There are waves and waves of DOOP army members, but these few have played more important roles.
