Your highness and excellency are also non-gender specific. But what would
you do for Republic and Democracy? Remembering history, the US Congress
argued for a long time (Adams favored "Excellency") before settling on the
simpler "Mr. President" -- but that won't work here....
Once upon a time, the CDC Scope/Hustler operating system console said:
"Yeah Master, what be thy bidding?"
That seemed fine -- until we had women in computer science. There was one
in the year before me (the only woman in "The Soul of a New Machine"), and
several in my cohort.
Until somebody writes a nation-title-gender-address function, I'll just
remove the address. Actually, it seems okay without the "flavor".
