Zimbabwe dollars less valuable than Schrute bucks

Boston Globe: "Zimbabwe drops 10 zeros from inflated currency"

Central Bank Governor Gideon Gono announced he was dropping 10 zeros from Zimbabwe's currency, effective tomorrow. The move comes a week after the issue of a 100 billion-dollar note - still not enough to buy a loaf of bread.
Dwight: Very good. You have earned one Schrute buck.
Stanley: I don't want it.
Dwight: Then you have been deducted 50 Schrute bucks.
Stanley: Make it a hundred.
Dwight: Wh...don't you wanna earn Schrute bucks?
Stanley: No. In fact, I'll give you a billion Stanley nickels if you never talk to me again.
Dwight: What's the ratio of Stanley nickels to Schrute bucks?
Stanley: The same as the ratio of unicorns to leprechauns
