At his meeting with Queen Elizabeth recently, Kevin Rudd turned to the Queen and said: As I'm the Prime Minister, I'm thinking of changing how my great country is referred to, and I'm thinking that it should be a Kingdom." The Queen replied, "I'm sorry Mr. Rudd, but to be a Kingdom, you have to have a King in charge - and you're not a King." Kevin Rudd thought a while and then said: "How about a Principality then?" To which the Queen replied, "Again, to be a Principality you have to be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr. Rudd." Rudd thought long and hard and came up with "How about an Empire then?" The Queen, getting a little annoyed by now, replied : "Sorry again, Mr. Rudd, but to be an Empire you must have an Emperor in charge - and you are not an Emperor." Before Rudd could utter another word, The Queen said: "I think you're doing quite nicely as a Country."
