5. Strong Bad, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People (PS3 / Wii)

Top 10 Video Game Politicians

Not only is Strong Bad the real star of the Homestar Runner series of online shorts and games, he’s also the ruler of the paradise that is Strong Badia. Granted, said paradise is a barren field behind a few garbage dumpsters, but Strong Bad rules it with honor and dignity. In the second episode of the series (appropriately called “Strong Badia the Free”,), Strong Bad leads a brave coup against the King of Town, refusing to pay the proposed email tax. If there’s anything more American than the American flag, it’s the Strong Badian symbol. God bless the snake with a knife slithering through a tire.

4. Edgar Roni Figaro, Final Fantasy VI (SNES)

Top 10 Video Game Politicians

After the death of the King of Figaro at the hands of the Empire, one of his sons was in line for the throne. Neither Sabin nor Edgar wanted the job, so they flipped a coin to determine who’d surrender their freedom. Edgar ended up losing, but he also proved to be an exceptional ruler. Edgar found time to take care of his people, develop the technological prowess of his nation, fight alongside the main heroes, and still find time to hit on anything that moves. His womanizing wasn’t as successful as his other attempts, but three out of four successes is better than most politicians’ records.

3. Shoko Ozora, Liberation Maiden (3DS)

Top 10 Video Game Politicians

Only Suda51 could come up with a game about a high school girl who inherits the title of President of Japan and has to fight the nation’s contamination by alien monsters via a giant mystical robot. But Shoko does an admirable job facing the burden that nobody else had ever even considered possible. Since Liberation Maiden is a short downloadable game, it only takes about an hour for Shoko to liberate the game from said alien monsters. In that time, the young girl proves an excellent leader. One can only hope that she’ll prove as effective fighting her country’s economic slump and aging population.
