Rejistanian actually has to systems: The official one uses the short scale and
vaguely American sounding names. The informal one stems from the various
inflations, Rejistania experienced. It is a reference to whoever the rejistanis
saw especially responsible for the mess their lil'kansu (or earlier veshinte) was
10^6 == miliju == jeo
10^8 == milijury == hilak (irregular)
10^9 == iviliju == sykansu
10^12 == teriliju == jetveran
and so on.
The highest informal would be 10^22 or K~hono even though that is a reference to
Gideon Gono from real life.
I hope this helps.
