    How much is one yea?

  • SlyBevel

    One Yea, of course, being a unit roughly approximate to a dozen kiloflots.

    The debate rages to this day whether a single Yea is a ridiculously large currency denomination, or if Flots are simply inflated to the point of obviation.

    I believe you can trade them indirectly (and informally) on the Dinar markets, but I wouldn’t ask it in open company.
