Grand Empress of AH.com

Her Imperial Majesty, Grand Empress, Augusta and Basilissa Sai of the Imperial Republic of AH.com

She is joined in the throne by His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor Consort

A Ceremonial role in the Ah.com politics system. President Sargon, in his last act before abdicating, thought to appoint his partner in this role, thought to be purely ceremonial, following her good care of him in times of serious ailment. Empress Sai was recognized by the Imperial Bill on August 17th of 2009

The Project was rapidly supported by members of Parliament present for Sargon’s farewell adress, including members of the EVIL Party, the Stranger Syndicate and the Yorkshire Socialist Party.

However, there was also immediate resistance against this from Susano and other members of the FFF as they argued that is not at all clear whether the President can even make such an appointment - they said that most likely not, although others disagreed.

On the other side, supporters of the office stressed the ceremonial nature of it, and argued that Flocculencio as recognized Caliph of AH.com was a precedence - while the counterarguement goes Flocc is Caliph of the Goatists, and that on AH.com Caliph is a purely religious and not political title anyways. This discussion went so far that Alsace-Lorraine officially decreed it does not recognise any AH.com monarch, which some EVIL supporters described as outright sedition.

To answer the question, TheDarkServant introduced the Imperial Bill (of) 2009 in Parliament which would have gained the proposed Empress recognition from Parliament (despite calls from the Escutcheonist Party that a referendum would have been necessary) in order to officially accept her status. However, the bill failed despite no “Nay” vote due to only three MPs voting.

Thus, the introduction of the role in the AH.com politcial system was delayed until the 2009-2010 Parliament voted 9 to 1, or 10 to 1, depending on the version of the bill, to recognize her Majesty as Monarch of AH.com

The many titles of the Her Majesty, the Empress: Her Imperial Majesty, Grand Empress, Augusta and Basilissa Sai of the Imperial Republic of AH.com, Imperatrix of the Tasty Stir Fry, Sultana of the Holy Sealion, Queen of Thai Kick Boxing, and Kaiserin of Chaos.

Despite the end of the AH.com Government, the Empress and Emperor-Consort remain and continue to be recognised in terms of the board culture of the forums here.
