Obviously all Admins on Uncyclopedia are Rank; this goes without saying. However, recent historical research by the Uncyclomedia Foundation has revealed that due to some obscure passage in the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights and the Act of Parliament that created the Royal Air Force, or a combination of the three with the existence of the Order of Uncyclopedia means that all Admins (and registered users) are actually Officers of the British Army (or, for the yanks, USAF or USMC)
It should be noted that users are advised against trying to exercise their power in this respect, as the army remains oblivious of the legal loophole. Should they discover it, there is a chance we will be dispatched to Guantanamo Bay, or worse still, Iraq.
Oddly enough, Order of Uncyclopedia Rank bears no relation to NATO rank.

- 1 Currently honorary/wartime rank only.
Officers can promote or demote subordinates as they see fit upto the rank immediately below their rank, excepting that some promotions and Demotions (for instance, to Admin or Major) occur through other means; for example, Uncyclopedia:VFS. Example: an Admin can promote a user to Lieutenant (although they need not nominate for admin), a Bureaucrat can in addition Promote a Major to a Colonel if (s)he see fit.
In order to notify a user of their promotion, use the template Template:Notice of Promotion and place it on their talk page. This will create documentation of promotion which may then be pasted anywhere else it is needed.
Senority within a Rank
Within a Rank, Seniority is based upon the Date of Commision; that is, the date (s)he registered on Uncyclopedia. Even if someone was only recently promoted, if they registered before you they have senority over you. This is of course highly unfair.
One of the quirks inevitably produced by this scheme is that all Registered Users are now part of the NATO standard rank scale. This could be especially interesting if, for example, a Captain in the US Army were to outrank many of their superiors through dint of writing about Kitten Huffing on the Interweb. This has yet to be resolved...
