The elective royal system was abolished in early 2009 in favor of a fascist form of government modeled off the Italian Social Republic. Following the New European Civil War the government reformed into a republic, that lasted until 2014 when the government voted to form a personal union with the Kingdom of Occidia.

When Occidia defunct in November 2014, Illinois simply went inactive until the North American Confederation reformed in 2015 assumed the government. Since this event, Illinois has remained a monarchy, and unlike its previous incarnation, the current Illinois Monarchy is a hereditary monarchy ruled by the House of Hartmann-Peters.

The Staatsführer was the Illinois head of state under the Fascist regime, which was officially in force from 2009 to 2010. The title was altered to its English translation of State Leader in the months following the New European Civil War due its connection to Fascism in the government. It was a directly elected position, votes being cast by popular suffrage of residents of the state. There were no term limits on the office.
