The Empire has its own currency that is backed by Silver. we never put out more paper or silver and gold coins than we have to back them in the treasury. The I dollar as it is referred to is accepted in all parts of the Empire and is worth 1/30th of an oz of silver and can be redeemed for silver at all banking institutions. Our rate of exchange with the US Dollar and the Euro are 3 Euros or Dollars for one Imperial Dollar. Fiat currency is not valued well within the Empire.
The Imperial dollar is accepted at several stores Including the Empires online store. Our Coins feature the Emperor, the Empress and his favorite character from the princess bride (you guess who).
The Empire has medals for service to the Empire and Military Service . These medals are not given out lightly and all are done at the Emperors hand.
