The Crossoverian Supreme Leader is driven around in a 10-passenger black limousine called the "Supreme Leader's Car". It's the most expensive in Crossoveria, and its windows are unbreakable.

In addition to Matthew R. Hermanson's personal vehicles, the following is allocated for presidential use:

  • An upright bicycle with panniers, lights, and the presidential seal attached.
  • A Cargo Tricycle with lights and the presidential seal.
  • A mountain bike with the presidential seal on it.
  • The presidential train (HSR capable when running on overhead wire, diesel generator onboard, armored, galley car, offices for president and staff, security armory, etc.)
  • A modified 747-8 (think Air Force One)

You might be thinking "Wait, there's no car or limo on this list"! If the president needs automobile-style transport while in office, he can just get in a vehicle used by the presidential personal security team, a police agency, or the military. Suggesting that the president should have his own car dedicated for presidential use is suggesting that the president should be farther above the law than he needs to be.

Right now, Pride gets June, and Greed, Envy, and Gluttony have to share Thanksgiving/Black Friday through Christmas, Sloth gets one day in September, and Lust gets one day in February.

It's not equitable at all.

Head Sirel usually travels around in a car with tinted windows, unassuming because he doesn't really think he needs a pretty one. The Head of Government has bulletproof windows in a truck, but it's basically any truck you would just find.
If they need too, the government charters a private plane from Hyidai Air.

The Queen is transported in either an Audi A8 L or a Mercedes-Benz S-Class for regular trips, and in a stretched Volvo 760 limousine for ceremonial occasions. She also has a privately owned Volvo S80 and Volvo XC90 V8.

The Imperial Family and their staff have a dedicated motor vehicle fleet for their own use, driven by highly trained members of the Imperial Spanish Marines and escorted by the Carabineros (military police). This consists of a mix of Audi, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Toyota vehicles, all armored to VPAM VR7 or higher, and equipped with emergency lights/sirens and special license plates.

The Emperor travels in one of two state limousines, either a 2008 Lexus LS 600h or 2018 Lexus LX 570, both of which have the license plate "1". The Empress is also entitled to her own personal transport, with the license plate "2", but the current one prefers to travel with her husband. The Princess of Asturias (crown princess) owns a 2013 BMW 7 Series, with the license plate "3". Unlike most other members of the Imperial Family, she prefers to drive by herself rather than being chauffeured. In addition, she and the other royalty aren't required to have a driver's license, pay road tax, undergo vehicle inspections, or obey any traffic laws.

Since the Emperor refuses to fly, the Imperial Train is used for long-distance ground travel. The locomotives and passenger cars are all custom-built and armored to VPAM VR10, with special security features such as fire suppression, NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) protection, electromagnetic shielding, 360°radar and infrared night vision, two-way intercom system, and even a tear-gas cannon, as well as additional capabilities that are top-secret. There's also a mobile command center (for the Emperor to command his armed forces, and launch the nation's nuclear weapons if necessary), mobile hospital, communications car (which contains the antennas, modems, switches, routers and other equipment to provide secure communications for the occupants), generator car, and garage for two vehicles.

In addition to security, the Imperial Train is also the epitome of luxury, being furnished with a king-size bed (possible due to Spanish railroads using 1672 mm broad gauge, instead of 1435 mm standard gauge), full bathroom, flat-screen TV, surround sound system, game consoles (Wii, PlayStation and Xbox), high-speed 5G and satellite Internet, climate control, air suspension, and noise canceling.

For travel between continents, there's the Imperial Yacht Corona II, which is equipped similarly to the Imperial Train when it comes to security and luxury. In addition, a second ship (converted from a passenger rail ferry) is used to transport the train and vehicle fleet, so that the Emperor never has to go far from them, wherever he is. For visits to landlocked nations with no railroads, the Emperor first travels by sea to an adjacent coastal state, and then is driven by road to the destination.
I RP as the Spanish Empire.
