Ivan Nerosk is the current (as of 2012) President of the Novaya Zemlya Free Republic. He assumed office in 2006, succeeding Tim J. Johnson, and is the nation's fourth president since its independence in 1990.
Born on March 11, 1967 in Petrozavodsk, in the then Soviet Union (part of the current Kingdom of Lapland). He is known for having a liberal political stance, like the nation's first president and co-founder Stan Fentley, and the country in general. He was voted into office with the 2006 elections, and retained the title after the 2010 elections. Since there is currently no official term limit, he will likely be able to run again in the 2014 elections.
