Chairman sounds the best tbh

it gives the vibe of some maoist state and no one's the wiser until you find out that it's some unassuming libertarian wishy washy republic

It's all about the purpose.

"Oversight Council" could easily just be a bunch of lawyers and accountants double-checking the viability of laws, but in practice it's closer to a word like "Division of State Security". It says what it does, in that bureaucratic way where the power of the office gets its meaning attached to the word through what it actually does within the nation later on. It also has that wonderful hint of false humility which accompanies the offices of all the best tyrants.

"Chairman of the Central Committee" probably has the same ring, admittedly.

The truth is that I actually think 'Overseer' sounds more intimidating than 'Grand Admiral'.

I could have sunk 10 carriers whose owner did not even think about giving them an escort or two.

Unfortunately it seems my moves have killed that thread.

Aphroarch never seemed to have much of an imposing ring to it, but I am alright with that. :P

It is not meant to be ancient Greek, it is meant to be an amalgamation of incorrectly-used Greco-Roman roots mashed together, with the sound of the word being pleasant taking precedence far over linguistic realism. :p

I was considering coming up with original titles once I finished my in-progress Nymphonian conlang, but by now it is rather too late to redact it. :meh:
