For too long, citizens of the world have suffered under the tyranny of unattractive leaders. Some people say that this is just the way things are: unattractive people have a death grip on the levers of power that will never be loosened. We say: Not with that attitude it won’t. By ranking the world’s leaders by looks, we hope to heighten voter awareness of this problem and shame the citizens of countries with unattractive leaders into rising up and staging coups or something.

In their spare time, Hottest Heads of State co-founders J.D. and Kate are aristocratic, devil-may-care fox hunters in St. Louis, Missouri. To learn more about the fascinating history and important future of fox hunting in St. Louis, please visit www.forestparkfoxhunt.wordpress.com. (Please note: Forest Park Fox Hunt is a humor website. We are not really foxhunters. Well, Kate is.)

J.D.: J.D.’s full name is J.D. Dobson, but that’s the only information he’ll reveal, other than that the views expressed on this site are not necessarily those of his employer (a communications agency) or its clients.

Well…actually, maybe one bit of additional information won’t hurt: he is incredibly good looking.

Kate: To begin Kate’s life with the beginning of Kate’s life, she records that she was born (as she has been informed and believes) on a Friday, at twelve o’clock at night. It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and she began to cry, simultaneously.

In consideration of the day and hour of her birth, it was declared by her nurse, and by some sage women in the neighbourhood who had taken a lively interest in her several months before there was any possibility of their becoming personally acquainted, first, that she was destined to be unlucky in life; and secondly, that she was privileged to see ghosts and spirits; both these gifts inevitably attaching, as they believed, to all unlucky infants of either gender, born towards the small hours on a Friday night.

Derek: When he’s not writing about world leaders, Derek makes kitten videos.
