The Chief of State of the New Republic holds the highest political office within the Republic. As head of the Executive Branch of the New Republic and Commander in Chief, the Chief of State is ultimately responsible for leading the Government in both name and fact. Assisting the Chief of State is the Advisory Council, made up of the heads of the civilian and military Departments of the New Republic and chaired by the Chief of State. In addition to leading the Executive branch, the Chief of State serves as the link between it and the Senate of the New Republic, bringing proposals and advice from the Advisory Council to the legislature and breaking tied votes within the Senate. Furthermore, the Chief of State is responsible for management of the Senate elections and has the power to grant pardons to citizens of the New Republic.

Due to a catastrophic series of technical problems and engine failures Maradin was stranded in the outer-reaches and unable to perform his duties as Chief of State as he would wish. While he was incommunicado his second in command, Minister Phymp Mindano, took the reigns and exercised his extensive leadership experience to guide the New Republic.

Ingo R. Vailis' tenure was marked by immense controversy over his illegal efforts to sell the Black Sun to Teniel Djo and the influence of Adam A Flynn. After a long period during which only a handful of aides had contact with Vailis, the Senate and Advisory Council passed a Vote of No Confidence in him; Vailis subsequently launched a brief coup. Minister Gawayne served as interim Chief of State, before being replaced by Minister Phymp Mindano who lead the New Republic through it's darkest days.
In the subsequent elections, no candidate obtained a majority in the first round, leading to a second round between Minister Phymp Mindano and Chief of Military Operations Edhrikhor Tlakh`sar. The runoff election was narrowly won by Edhrikhor, making him the third Chief of State.

Under Edhrikhor's leadership, the New Republic stabilised and flourished. Edhrikhor spearheaded a production spree, helping the New Republic Fleet to replenish its losses from the coup several times over, led several pushes against Imperial expansion, and encouraged a number of neutral governments to join forces with the New Republic in it's war against the Galactic Empire. His tenure also saw the expansion of the Galactic Alliance. Edhrikhor became the first Chief of State to complete a full term, and did not seek reelection.

Under Traner's leadership, important changes in several sectors took place. Regarding the economy, the tax planet at Belecalaryn was completed, wages were increased, and the Trade Bursary programme was reopened for the NR citizens. However, the most impressive action was the mergers of different but similar companies, carried out to streamline the processes and increase the level of cooperation among all the parties involved. This led to a lot of changes in the AC, Ministers, and Associate Ministers. A new position was also created: the Executive Employment Administrator. Moreover, CRI renovated its inner structure.

Regarding the military, the reorganization involved mainly the Army, and a new Battlegroup was created.

Traner's administration saw also the looting of Astralwerks Engineering and its renewed management under the name of Noga-Ta Industries, as well as an unfortunate event balanced by the quick response and support to one of the GA members, The Antarian Rangers struck by BS.

Like his predecessor, Zeff Traner completed a full term as CoS, and did not seek reelection.
