History of the CurrencyEdit
Pet Society originally used Kistra in the early 1970s as the official currency. Before 1975, they had to succumb to other countries' currencies, such as the Bolah Kingdom and USA. The denonation is Kd. Kd1 equals up to $1 at first. However, as the Pet Society-Warwick Avenue War started in 1978, Kd1 rose up to $1 million. Everyone gotten poor and the king was overthrown. A new king came up and ordered all Kistra to be eliminated. The economy got even poorer, and went back to the other currency style.
In 1980, a "Boomz" occured and everyone gotten rich again. The currency was switched to Royal Dollars, or $, and $1 was equiverlent to 100 Bolah Dollars, the currency of the Bolah Kingdom back then. The economy dropped and everyone was middle-class, like in the 1975 period.
Royal Dollars was eliminated in 1981 when Royal Pets merged with the Republic Pets, and the new currency was Pet Poop (not REALLY poop), or PU. PU1 was equal to $1. All pets had to exchange their money then with the new currency before the end of the decade. All cash was withdrawn by 1983.
In 1990, when the Communist Party of Domesticated Animals owned most of the seats in parliment, Pet Society fell into a state of despair. It was dubbed "Stock Market Crash of Pets", and PU1 became equiverlent to $1000, or 100 thousand Bolah Dollars. That was accidential: and the pets start getting rich & poor. PU1 immediately became $0.1, or 1 Bolah Dollar. Everything came to a standstill in 1992, when PU was changed to CU, or Communist Union Currency.
CU lasted through the Communist and New Monarch years. On 18 September 2001, "The Mayor" released a statement that read:
DEAR RESIDENTS OF THE NEW PET SOCIETY THE COMMUNIST UNION CURRENCY WILL NOW BE CHANGED INTO COINS. THE VALUE OF COINS ARE UNKNOWN, AND IT DEPENDS ON TWO FACTORS THAT ARE NOT GOING TO BE REVEALED. WHOEVER USES COMMUNIST UNION CURRENCY WILL BE KILLED IMMEDIATELY (how cruel). YOU COULD NOT EXCHANGE YOUR COMMUNIST UNION CURRENCY FOR COINS. YOU WILL BE GIVEN COMPENSATION OF 200 COINS, AND IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYEE OF PETS KLIEN INDUSTRIES, YOU WILL RECEIVE COINS AS YOUR NEW SALARY. ONCE YOUR BOSS GET COINS IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THAT COMPANY, YOU WILL INSTANTLY BE PAID A SALARY OF COINS. BY THE MAYOR
It took four years for the economy to recover. In 2009, Playfish Cash was added to the soloution, and now takes up 1/5 of the peoples' money.
