How does one set up a strong military for beginners use and how does one play the war game?
Also, how do federations work and how can deploy nukes?

I can answer all these.
WATCH YOUR BUDGET WHILE DOING THESE! COUNT THE DOLLARS AND PULL OUT YOUR CALCULATOR.
>Buy ammo at good qualities, don't upgrade any ammo that isn't airforce ammo
>Buy weapons at low qualities (except for army units, then you buy high) (if you have the time(), then buy a high level of 'any quality' 'best price' weapon upgrades.
>Upgrade fighting levels and set all weapons to a high 330-400 level. It will upgrade over many months. Upgrade the ammo quality of airforce units, but not army units. Army units cost 200x to upgrade just a FEW levels than they cost to produce.
>Fight C3's to learn how to fight. The "Win a war in 10minutes" should help you get started. Talk to Aries about strategies.
>TO DEPLOY NUKES, select a city, base, or the capital, select land-based arms and select the # to launch. DO NOT DO THIS AS THE SECURITY COUNCIL AND I WILL COME AFTER YOUR NATION.
>Federations support eachother and work together as a team. The Union (The best and largest federation on WG) has the most supportive members.

"beginner" is a pretty broad term.
what i'd recommend, is setting up 20 Interceptor wings, and 10 Helicopter wings, and max upgrade them. if you upgrade them to 450, then later on, when you have trouble, you can double them, with the extra being 330Q, and end up with 40 I-wings at 390. Its unlikely that another newb will have enough Offensive air wings that have a high enough Quality to match, that is if you can get federation air support, which you can set up with your own countries.
Set up about a dozen large and small supply units, with LT, and LTA. If you manage to fill your garrisons, you'll need more of these.
as far as garrisons. for your capital, cities, and bases, you'll need nuke D. 10 NDB, with 50 missiles each. as far other weapons, thats gonna depend on your available funds, and manpower.
further with garrisons, its unlikely that you will fill each garrison. focus your heavier garrisons in your capital, cities, and bases. for starters on those, try 100 each of AAMB, DMB, and MIB. with maybe 100 Armored Vehicles, or light tanks. And default ammo.
for your factories and forts, if you can, do the same. and for your towns and countries, try setting those with 50 ish Light tanks, to prevent the bad guy from taking over empty territory.
try to spread out your targets, especially the ones with tanks. to get maximum blockage of enemy troops. you can do this via the map controls. this is something that must be done before war is declared.
keep in mind. for any serious threat, you'll need a federation. as the garrisons i've mentions are rather light.

Thank you for your help you guys. i'm still a bit confused about some things here and there will ask more questions later.
When building ones' army, is the economy hurt? For example if my profit per month is 20B and I start working on maintaining an army, will my profit go down?
If so how do I make it so that my economy isn't hurt.
Why are nuclear weapons not allowed to be used? I do not see the point in having them but not using them. Would it be just for deterrence?

Yes, your economy is hurt, but not as much, or its just me. I spend 8B roughly on military, and I have a Defense Rank of 41, with 650,000+ troops. It counts as roughly 33% of my total spending, but I get away with a 6B-10B profit. Also, most of your profit right now is Beginners Booster which helps you earlier in the game. Also, nuclear weapons can be used, but only in a PvP fight, but the Security Council may bite your butt if you use them excessively. But here's a Simcountry LAW: The best way to make money is through Raiding, you can get 2.5T profit if you fight a War Level 3 CCC.

make sure to buy 120 military supplies, and services. the lower your gov salaries, will also save allot of costs. trying to buy High Quality weapons and ammo, and upgrading, to have a more consentrated fire power, as opposed to over whelming, will also help.
in theory, you should only be facing off with those of your same build up level. for defense against those stronger than you, search out a federation, of your same temperment, that can assist you with air defense.
additionally, for upgrading focus on your air defense, thats where you'll get the best bag for your buck.
