Unlike the base 10 (decimal) system used by Earth's dominant cultures, the Zurvár use a base five (quinary) system of numbers. As such Zurvár has only five digits, representing the numbers from 0 to 4.

These symbols are derived from the traditional alphabet of house `Vàgalstan`

, which officially replaced the original more ornate symbols created by `Cufár Bekátal Kuváravik`

(Cufár of Bekátálá) at the 2nd `Wàcurátá`

Conferance in -ST0109.

There are conventional names for all numbers up to 50, as presented below. Beyond this point there are names for some of the round numbers (125, 625, etc up to 78125) and multiples thereof, but it is more common to just read out the numbers in sequence, possibly grouping the last two or three together if a conventional name is available. For instance...

= `tò-rûvár`

or `tò-rû-ver`

= `zad-zatòat`

or `zad-zad-tò-kadat`

There is a small yet rather vocal movement on Zurvár Arèáná advocating an official change to a base ten system. They are generally regarded as harmless `mon gerek`

.
