The President of Sorrenia is the Head of State of the Sorrenian Federation. The President heads the National Assembly, and is granted power to make decisions on behalf of Sorrenia.

The Presidency was declared as the Head of State almost immediately after the creation of Sorrenia. After small elections were held between the people, it was decided that Miles of Sorrenia should be the President, winning the election 3:1.

Under Miles of Sorrenia, large advancements were made, such as the large scale growth of Sorrenia, the introduction of various laws such as the Marijuana Legalization Bill and the Proportional Representation Bill. While his various terms did cause problems - particularly with the right wing in Sorrenia - he was deemed a popular leader, winning his elections with a landslide victory on all accounts.

On the 7th of November, 2014, Andrew Janiszewski replaced Miles of Sorrenia as the President, as Miles felt that he was no longer able to lead Sorrenia due to the increased pressure of GCSE's. Janiszewski's term was also marked by large-scale progress, in which Sorrenia continued to grow, and began to focus its effort on cultural growth. In the February 2015 elections, both Janiszewski and Miles of Sorrenia ran for election (as well as right wing candidate Jason Hale and Commonwealth candidate Richard Hytholoday). Miles won outright with 55% - it is expected however, that had he failed to win a majority, Janiszewski could have won, as using the Alternative Vote system, it is likely he would have won the majority of the right wing votes. Although Miles replaced Janiszewski as President, Janiszewski remains a prominent politician in Sorrenia.
