The United States of America's executive branch was governed by a president. Trip Tucker, hearing that Mestral may have lived on Earth from 1957 until well into the 22nd century, reckoned that the Vulcan explorer would have lived through "what – thirty presidents?"

After negotiating Cardassia's annexation into the Dominion in 2373, Dukat effectively became the emperor of the Cardassian people, though still a servant of the Founders. However, he chose to maintain his rank of gul as opposed to legate because he felt it was more "hands on," and because the titles of emperor, president, first minister, and emissary seemed too "pretentious." (DS9: "Ties of Blood and Water")
