Madza Bral was a female Trill politician in the early 23rd century. She was elected President of the United Federation of Planets in the 2200s and served two terms. Bral was the first President who wasn't from one of the five founding worlds.
Her retirement speech included the following excerpt:
- The presidency is quite possibly the worst job in the Federation. The hours are long, the work is difficult, the decisions that have to be made are unimaginable to anyone who has never set foot in the Palais de la Concorde. Your successes are unappreciated, your failures are blown out of all proportion, and your life disintegrates before your very eyes. And having said all that, I would never, under any circumstances, trade the last eight years for anything... What matters, in the end, is that the Federation endures.
- Articles of the Federation establishes that Bral was elected "about a hundred and fifty years" before 2380. To accomodate Greshlahrigm, it is assumed that Bral was elected in 2232, assumed office in 2233, and remained in office until 2240.
