Hear ye, Hear ye! The massively overworked accounting staff of the Kingdom of Thrif-te has completed the accounting and census for 2006.

I would like to thank everyone that helped compile the data and I can assure everyone in the Kingdom that the crowning of the King for 2007 won't take as long.


I promise.


No, Really, I do.

Last year's coronation/census information is here:

The Kingdom, with it's current open borders policy, has seen a population explosion. The year 2005, the Kingdom had a population of 229. By the end of 2006, the official population of Thrif-te was 443, an increase (by 214) of almost 93%.

With a population explosion, a financial explosion took place as well. Since the currency of thrift is global (and since there was no way I was going to be able to run a currency conversion and still maintain my sanity), the currency of each nation is considered equal in the Kingdom. Canadians work just as hard for a Canadian dollar as the British work for the Pound and the Americans work for the buck.

Therefore, all financial amounts in the Kingdom shall be referred to as Thallers (THrifty ALLmighty Euro/dollaRS).

The financial records for 2005 were accidentally left in a copy of Cashflow 101 and sold on e-Bay, but the total Thaller amount spent on games for 2006 is $13,456.08

But what everyone is wanting to know is, "Just how thrifty ARE these guys?" The rough average paid for a game was less than $2.50. Of course this is skewed because not everyone listed a price for their finds.

The highest price paid was $71 by Blackwind for a copy of Republic of Rome

With the incredible influx of people and money, the number of find went up as well. This inflation also called for a slight adjustment in the 'classes' within the Kingdom.
In 2005 there was a King
Council members were the next 12
Lords were people with 20-30 finds
Vassals had 10-20 finds
Peasants had 4-9 finds
Serfs had 1-3 finds

2006 has a King and a council of 13
I then had to break down the remaining population, but breaking it at 20-30, 10-19, 4-9, etc. just wouldn't work. I broke it down into manageable groups, again based on the number of finds. I placed the bottom of the finds, 10 or less, as Serfs and divided the range between 11 and just below the last Council member by three to get the middle three classes. Surprisingly, the population division stayed about the same, except for the Serfs.
