The Emperor of Manchuria is the official head of state of Manchuria.
Following Japan's seizure of Manchuria in 1932, they established a puppet state known as Manchukuo, with the former Qing Emperor, Pu Yi, as its emperor. Pu Yi and his brother were accused of collaborating and being puppets of Japan, resulting in their arrest in 1946 when Russia conquered Manchuria during the end of World War II. Emperor Pu Yi and his brother were thrown into a Russian prison, and the line passed to his younger brother Puren. Puren was essentially a puppet of the Russians, as there was always the threat of overthrowing the monarchy in order to establish a more Russian-friendly government. When Russia collapsed in 2003, Manchuria finally threw off his shackles and established an independent democrat state. The Emperor is merely a symbolic and has little power, however his statements are very influential in Manchurian politics.
