President: Frederick Bowie – (Age: 87;Wealthy banker turned politician. He assumed the office of president upon the death of the previous president (H. Crockstead VII) in 2203. He was ratified in 2205 by the council. He is known to be a smooth tongued man, who does little and works behind the scenes more than in the public eye.) The president’s office is responsible for maintaining the organization and representing it to the public.

Chancellor: Jeremiah Tanis – (Age 51; Life-long politician. He was voted into the Chancellor’s seat by an overwhelming majority as a source of strong leadership to counter the under-handed policies of the President. He is a strong, young man, and he is known for being tolerant toward corporations and his right wing hardballing. He leaves very little to chance, and often gets his way in the votes.) The chancellor is responsible for moderating the policies and rulings of the Council as a whole.

The United Nations council has changed much from its original incarnation in the mid 20th century. It has become the de facto government of what is in fact, if not name, the human empire. It is known for its humanitarian efforts and its effort to keep peace on the garden worlds. However it also favors the massive planet spanning corporations present all over the settled worlds. On the Garden Worlds the UN is loved and respected; on fringe worlds and industrial worlds the UN seems distant and uncaring. There is no one universal opinion of the UN and yet it remains in power. Dealing with this massive organization can be a hassle, as the red tape is several yards thick. The only redeeming factor of the red tape is the documentation that can be readily available.
