I don't think there is a Tau Emperor... more a ruling council.

Tau donīt have an emperor. I sometimes wonder why they call it the empire?

Artefact world is a planet that belonged to another race, and has their items there. (usually plenty of them).
This means they can have new tech or something else worth a lot.

An Empire does not need an Emperor. From Wordnet from Princeton:
Quote:
n 1: the domain ruled by an emperor or empress
* 2: a group of countries under a single authority; "the British empire"
* 3: a monarchy with an emperor as head of state
* 4: a group of diverse companies under common ownership and run as a single organization [syn: conglomerate]
* 5: an eating apple that somewhat resembles a McIntosh; used as both an eating and a cooking apple [syn: Empire]
In this case, #2 is the relevant description, and in Tau terms "countries"=worlds or races; "single authority"=some type of Aun council, therefore, the Tau have an empire. Like the example gives there, the British had an Empire, but never had an Emperor, they have Kings and Queens, but they're not termed Emperor.

Victoria was Queen of England, and Empress of India - this latter title made the collection of countries under UK rule and empire. Though on another thread somewhere else it turns out that this is really just a bad example, Rome had an Empire before it had Emperors
