- "Cut off the head, and the serpent dies. Without the viceroy, the Trade Federation collapses."
- ―Padmé Amidala
The Trade Federation Viceroy, sometimes referred to as the Commanding Viceroy, was the leader of the Trade Federation, the chairbeing of the Trade Federation Directorate, and, as a Neimoidian, head of the Neimoidian Inner Circle in the years prior to the Invasion of Naboo. The symbol of the Viceroy around the time of the Battle of Naboo was a three-pointed tiara, but it would change over time.
Hask was the Viceroy as of 44 BBY. He was succeeded by Nute Gunray, who held the position until his demise in 19 BBY. Sentepeth Findos served as Acting Viceroy very briefly following Gunray's death, until the Federation was nationalized by the Galactic Empire shortly after the Declaration of a New Order.
During the Federation's militarization, the Viceroy acted as commander of their military.
