"Herzogtum" was introduced in one of the Entertainment Bibles. It's just
the German word for "Dukedom" and the EB had the Zeon military down as
"Zion Herzogtum Korps" -- ZHK -- in direct correspondence to the
Federation's UNT ("United Nation Troops"). Please note that "Nation" is
singular, in keeping with the notion of the Federation as a unified world
government, as Mark noted.
