Queen Faketoria is an ongoing interactive steampunk art project, by Doctor Geof, that satirises the perils of reckless privatisation by offering to privatise a beloved un-privatise-able publicly-held institution: the Queen. Launched at the Asylum Steampunk Festival 2019, with the assistance of Brendan McCoy in the role of Queen Faketoria, this project blends corporate and royal behaviour with the stated aim of "Doing royal stuff so as to get some of that hot monarching business." Such as issuing commemorative coins.
