  • As can be seen the currency of the Republic is a decimal based system, although other local currencies exist throughout the empire all trade is completed using the common currency of the realm.
  • Now days the use of physical currency is limited to the lower classes, as all citizens, and higher social classes have an implant in their left arm which carries their identity and medical record as well as bank details and is scanned following purchases therefore proving cashless transactions.
