Xi Jinping (/ˌʃiː dʒɪnˈpɪŋ/ SHEE jin-PING; Chinese: 习近平; born 15 June 1953) is a Chinese politician who has served as General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) since 2012, and President of the People's Republic of China (PRC) since 2013. Xi has been the paramount leader of China, the most prominent political leader in China, since 2012.

Xi has significantly centralized institutional power by taking on a wide range of leadership positions, including chairing the newly formed CCP National Security Commission, as well as new steering committees on economic and social reforms, military restructuring and modernization, and the internet.

Xi's political thoughts have been written into the party and state constitutions. Xi has been called a dictator or an authoritarian leader by political and academic observers, citing an increase of censorship and mass surveillance, a deterioration in human rights, the cult of personality developing around him, and the removal of term limits for the leadership under his tenure.

Xi Jinping in "The Breaking of Nations"[]

Xi Jinping was the first international leaders to recognize Pacifica in 2031.[1] Nicole Yoshida, the acting president of Pacifica, was canny enough to realize that Xi was more interested in thwarting Mike Pence and the United States than they were in the professed ideals of Pacifica. Yoshida and the rest of the acting government were also unwilling to become China's puppet.[2]

Later, when Vladimir Putin of Russia also recognized Pacifica, he consulted Xi before making the announcement.[3]
