Victoria Catherine Stobie, MP (née Bentinck; born October 17, 1970) is a the 28th and current Premier of Vodeo and leader of the Federal Party. She is the first female Premier in Vodean history, and also the youngest, having taken office on November 15, 2010 at the age of 40. She has also served as the leader of the Alliance for Liberty since July 7, 2014.

Born in Wahala, St Austell, Stobie attended Wahala College between 1983 and 1988 and graduated with a master's degree in nuclear science from the University of Saviso in 1994. After university, she worked for the Ministry of Atomic Energy between 1994 and 1998, before being elected to represent the Razorback electorate for the Federal Party at the 1998 general election. Initially a back bench MP, she was elevated to cabinet as the Associate Minister of Atomic Energy in 2000. Following Federal's defeat the following year, Stobie rose through the party's ranks to become the party's deputy leader in 2006, and eventually succeeded George Aitken as party leader in 2008. She led Federal to victory in the 2010 general election, repeating the feat in 2013 and 2016, becoming the first Premier to win a third-term majority since Guy Bradford in 1956.

She is the great-great-great-great granddaughter of Harry Bentinck, the 12th Premier of Vodeo, who governed between 1910 and 1919.
