I don't know about the UK, but here the Prime Minister is the leader of the Government, not the leader of the Parliament. There's a spokesman or something else at the head of the Parliament. Likewise "Leader of the Soviet Union", wouldn't that have been the president too? Like Gorbachev, or who/what was a premier in relation to the president?

Hi, and thanks for your comment. I think you are right, I should be more specific and say leader of the Government for the Prime Minister. However, according to Wikipedia, the Soviet Union was lead by a Premier, not a president.

I think Muscovy was a principality, not a tsardom. You could change that one to leader of the Russian Empire.

Dammit haha I tried sultan for so many of them!

Also would it be possible to accept 'chief' for chief of police? I thought of chief of police and just typed chief, and when it wasn't accepted I thought I must just be wrong
