This page contains information regarding finance and currency of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.
The Poku'vonai use hard lelpa (currency) for day to day transactions. Each city state within the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station) produces their own currency. However all currency conform to precise standards so they can be used anywhere in the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station). All currency has the likeness of Kotoz Mui on the front.
The majority of day to day transactions within the Poku Saeruo Degonjo are done with hard currency, in the form of the Odawina (OW). Larger transactions are handled via electronic transactions, but they are backed up by actual hard currency in one of the banks. Poku Saeruo Degonjo members do not use debit cards or credit cards. All electronic transactions are handled by computer terminals.
Lelpa Ruohu means money building, or financial institution. Each operates under the governance of the City State they are located in. The majority of them are operated by the Jaeli (Sects), although some of the Rouka'ka operate their own institutions.
Lelpa'jyaon (money rules) vary depending on what category the transaction takes place in. Finances fall into one of these categories:
All transactions of trade are subject to a 2% tax which must be paid by the seller. It comes out of the price agreed upon and is not levied on after.

* Do not receive a time in rank bonus
Members of the Clan at low level ranks do not receive a salary. Instead they receive boon, which works along the same lines as the Yamatai Prestige System.
Some occupations will offer the participants lelpafiqori (shares) rather than a flat wage. One example is the members of a hunt do not receive a weekly salary, instead they receive shares in the profit of the hunt.
