Originally a literal dictator; after the Messer Era, the UEE has recently restructured the Imperator to more resemble a President (democratically elected, term limits, not insane, etc.). To quote the first Imperator, Ivar Messer, “every ship needs a captain.” The position is there to provide a final decision. Bills and legislation start in the UEE Senate, move up to the High-Secretary, then go to the Imperator for approval or veto.
