A head of state is a representative of a country. In micronationalism, it is commonly a emperor or king. The head of state may differ from the head of Government, such as a vice-president or prime minister, which are usually in charge of the legislature. In some micronations, the head of state may also serve as the head of government.

Although uncommon, in some micronations (such as The Islands of Omaha) the head of state may have little to none power. This is more common in macronations, such as India or Jamaica.

According to the Micronational Leaders Index, emperor is the most common type of head of state, followed by president and then prince.

Some micronations have animals as the head of state.
