President is the title for the head of state in most republics. They are usually democratically elected, even if by appearances only. Depending on the country, they may also be head of government as well as the chief executive of the armed forces. Thirty-three countries in the Command & Conquer series are depicted with presidents as their head of state. The European Union also has a President. This person is unarmed, doesn't speak and is protected by two Secret Service units.
