What would be the Borg Queen's designation?

I don't think I ever heard any Borg call her Queen, or any numerical designation. I don't even remember 7 of 9 call the Queen by any designation.

Would she be 1 of 1? 1 of 1 because there is only one Queen at one time.

All of Everything.

It woud depend on how many Queens there were, I've considered that there might be several, each running a section of the collective.

TrekLit notwithstanding, I'd go with "The Assimilation Anomaly", or if you wanted something cool to dig into later, "Assimilation Anomaly #2".

She gave her name on screen. She literally self-identifies as "the Borg." As in, "I am the Borg." Her name is the name of an entire species.

Or rather, the Borg is the entire species, and the Queen is merely its central coordinating node. When she speaks, it's the entire collective mind that's speaking, simply focused through that particular body. Which is why the Queen can't be killed. Destroy the Queen, and the Collective is incapacitated for a bit, but it simply plugs in a new Queen component and restores full function.
