Fiagia also takes longer to pass a year than Earth by 27.75 days since Earth has 365.25 days compared to 393 in Fiagia.

When converting any Furrian second to Earth seconds, just divide the Furrian second value by 0.435. (sc/0.435)

Telling Time

A day in Fiagia is separated into two halves: day-time, and night-time.
This is further separated into two more halves, which results into the four known quarters of the day:

Day-time Night-time
Morning Afternoon Evening Night

An inhabitant of Fiagia can choose to impose two different systems for telling time:
the Ante-Post Meridiem (APM) system or the Deuol Diei (20D) system.

Ante-Post Meridiem System

The Ante-Post Meridiem System (also known as the before-after midday system) splits the 20 hours of the day into two 10-hour periods: before midday, known as Ante Meridiem (AM) and after midday, known as Post Meridiem. (PM)

Day-time Night-time
Morning Afternoon Evening Night
5:00.00 AM - 9:99.99 AM 0:00.00 PM - 4:99.99 PM 5:00.00 PM - 9:99.99 PM 0:00.00 AM - 4:99.99 AM

Deuol Diei System

The Deuol Diei System (also known as the 20 hours of the day system) maintains all of the 20 hours of the day, where the the first hour in the system is from midnight and ends in midnight. However, the 0th hour is considered the 20th hour.
