Chad Henshaw (1965-2005) was Chief of State of Ular from 2001 until his death in 2005. A socialist, Henshaw was part of the white minority, who despite their size have considerable political and economic influence. Henshaw was elected Chief of State in October 2001 at the age of 36, Ular's second-youngest leader. While elected on a reformist platform, Henshaw was criticised while in office for not doing enough to combat terrorism or end Ular's status as a tax haven. For much if not all of his term, Henshaw was a critic of the American and Saydneyan governments, and harboured a deep dislike of Saydneyan President Marc Emerson. The verbal sparring between the two of them led Georgeland Prime Minister Campbell Rhodes to mediate between the two nations when tensions flared in late 2003. In January 2005, an Islamist terrorist group assassinated Henshaw outside the Ularian Parliament. The group claimed Henshaw's assassination was to 'orchestrate a Jihad against the Christian pigs in Ular'. Some doubt has been cast over Henshaw's death, with some groups claiming Islamic terrorists are a scapegoat and that Henshaw's death was a political assassination by a foreign government. Henshaw was succeeded as Chief of State by Amrahn Homnado.
