All depends upon where you live, I believe, so you're likely stuck.

I know they have mandatory conscription in Russia (my brother in law got out of it due to health issues, but at one point they were pulling a Soviet-era trick and showing up and dragging young folks off in the middle of the night if they didn't report), and I'm pretty sure I heard/read that they do in Finland and Sweden too. Not sure where else.
