Shiro Mephistopheles is the current ruler of the micronation known as Zenrax, having held the post of Emperor since his election in December 2014, and confirmed for a second five-year term in 2019.. Also the reigning ruler of Stormhold, he has extensive experience in the community under past aliases. Aside from this, he has served as the Master of the Order of the Rose since its founding in the summer of 2003.

Outside of Zenrax, he served in a variety of roles within the Grand Unified Micronational as Zenrax's primary delegate, most recently as Chair during the first half of 2023. After an exceptionally quiet term for the organization (excepting its initial weeks), he was succeeded there by Simon White of New Virginia in July 2023. Outside of the GUM, he represents Zenrax as a Prince-Elector in the Holy Roman Empire, having acted as Vice Chancellor, and, currently, as its Aulic Judge. He also represents Zenrax in other, minor, organizations to maintain its online presence in the community outside of its internal circles.

The Emperor, in his own personal capacity, occasionally takes on roles in other micronations. including as President of the Privy Council of Vishwamitra, where he regularly advised their monarch on matters of leadership and state, until passing the office to Phillip Joseph Pillin. Emperor Shiro has also formerly held roles with varying responsibilities in micronations such as Dracul, Abelden, and Austenasia (as the Minister of Defense and, in 2023, as Consul). Notably, he served as the principal advisor and, for a brief term, a co-leader in Aphelia before it joined Zenrax in 2022. He also holds honorary citizenship in Wyvern due to diplomatic services in the past.
