This will be a little esoteric (for obvious reasons!?)
I’m seeing now that the leaders of this world (nations) live a different life and see from a different perspective. They see the world in terms of nations, which is a simpler problem than a world full of individuals (perhaps).
They have to have knowledge of all the players (or basic moves and land divisions) and they have to work to protect themselves from all sides which takes constant meditation.
Language would be important.
They probably don’t have much time or luxury of being evil (or good) and are probably pinned or in mate nearly always (or always).
