Air Force One is the official air traffic control call sign for a United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President of the United States. -
Do any other nations have an equivalent call sign for an aircraft carrying their head of state?

It is all in your link (in the "See Also"), E.g.:
Note: Often it is better to disguise who the airplane is transporting (especially when flying above a lot of different countries), and often the president has not so much power ("
nuclear football"), so a hired jet it is enough, no need to communicate home.
