The Universe-some information to help you live in it 1 AREA: Infinite 2 IMPORTS: None It is impossible to import things into an infinite area, there being no outside to import things in from. 3. EXPORTS: None See Imports 4. POPULATION: None It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination. 5. MONETARY UNITS: None In fact there are 3 freely convertible currencies in the Galaxy, but noe of them count. The Altairian Dollar has recently collasped, the Flainian Pobble Bead is only exchangeable for other Flainian Pobble Beads, and the Triganic Pu has its own very special problem. Its exchange rate of 8 Ningis to 1 Pu is simple enough, but since a Nigi is a triangular rubber coin 6,800 miles along each side, no one has ever collected enough to own one Pu. Ningis are not negotiable currency, because the Galactibanks refuse to deal in fiddling small change. From this basic premise it is very simple to prove that the Galactibanks are also a product of a deranged imagination. 6. ART: None The function of art is to hold the mirror up to nature, and there simply isn't a mirror big enough-see point one.
