To whom it may concern,

The Principality of Belkaland demands the return of our kidnapped Nuclear Physicist, they were in the middle of a major breakthrough in the world of nuclear science when your company kidnapped them. A breakthrough that would allow nuclear reactors to be constructed 20% smaller, yet have an increase in power production of 8%.

Also, after further viewing of your offerings, I would like to purchase 2 White Cats. That should come to 300 Harens, or 300 Belkan Zollars as we have the same exchange rate with the USD.

Three years...good grief I'm an old man! It was just yesterday I was the baby of NS; so proud to reach a population of 1 billion.
