|This article is part of the series|
|Politics and government|
The following is a list of heads of government of Esse, and the various governments composing its associated states, from the foundation of the first Commonwealth of Esse in June 2015 to its present state of confederal stateship within the Uber-Essian Union, which will take full legal effect on 1 June 2020.
List of Lord Protectors (2015—2016)
The Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of Esse was the first head of government of Esse, acting as both head of state and government, as well as essentially being an absolute, elective monarch. The first and only Lord Protector was Lord Protector Henry, elected to a meant-to-be five-year term in the 2015 Lord Protectoral election.
Below is a table noting the people who served as Lord Protector from the title's conception up until the unknown date at which the Commonwealth became inactive and eventually was absorbed into the Atlantic Commonwealth.

List of Patrician-Viceroys (2016—2017)
The Commonwealth of Esse was officially colonized by Mercia on 28 August 2016 with the passage of the 28th of August Treaty of Esse Concession Bill. Upon the bill taking effect, Esse was renamed the Dominion of Esse. Additionally, the government of Esse was replaced with a Viceroy and the Mercian Parliament House. Henry Clémens, founder of Esse, was made Patrician-Viceroy of the new colony, where he served until the colony's secession on 21 August 2017
Below is a table noting those who served as "Patrician-Viceroy" of the Mercian Domain of Esse.

List of Heaministers (2017—2018)
The Heaminister of the Essian Commonwealth (in Essian: Heaministere Essium Commenssalochum) was the head of government of the Essian Commonwealth. The office was created in January 2017 as a direct result of the Declaration of Restoration, and was first established in the 2017 Constitution, its present powers and duties being determined by the 2018 Constitution.
Before the creation of the Premiership, the Essian Commonwealth was governed unilaterally by the Lord Protector. The office was established in the 2017 Constitution shortly after the nation's restoration, and James Reginald Frisch was thereafter decreed to be the inaugural Heaminister. The office was designated with a myriad of new privileges in the 2018 Constitution, in addition to being separated from the Parlamenzalochas as a largely independent executive office. The officeholder largely determined his cabinet, and therefore the number of ministries in his government.
