The 109 Exchange

In 2012, the kingdom instituted its first market known as the 109 Exchange.  For the first time, 109 merchandise ​was on sale for prices determined by the market.  At first, The Exchange accepted many different forms of currency including US dollars, euro, British pounds and Czech kopeks.  The exchange also accepted kleenex boxes, pencils and erasers.

Princess Stephanie

​On May 18, Mr. Huang proposed to Princess Stephanie of Putnam County.  The betrothal ensured the first-ever queen of 109, though Mr. Huang still had to decide whether Princess Stephanie would become queen consort or full queen.  The wedding was scheduled for November 2013.
