Time Zone Feniz lies in the old system time zone Christiana Mean Time (CMT) - 1 hour.

Feniz lies in the new system time zone VexTime - Cruisana (VTC).

Currency The monetary unit is the Camel. The value of the Camel is fixed against the Christiana Crown at 2 cm= 1 Christiana Crown.

The Camel was originally defined likewise as the price for a normal camel as an animal and a tenthousandth of this value as a coin. The former, the "big" Camel, was abbreviated "Cm", the latter, or "small" Camel, "cm" or cm.

The double definition of the Camel has caused misunderstandings in the international financial world; the necessary attention as to which unit (Cm or cm) was used with prices or statistics stated a problem for our fast-living world. Therefore, the monetary unit of the Dromeedaar (DM) has been introduced instead of the "big" Camel, 1 Dromeedaar amounting to 10,000 Camel. You are free to write CM, Cm, cm or cm now for the Camel.

There are coins of 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cm, and bills of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 500 and 1,000 cm. The DM is for calculatory purposes only, and no DM bills or whatsoever are available.
