200 (two hundred) is used as the base of all googologisms by Lawrence Hollom. A faxul, for example, is equal to 200!, or the factorial of 200.[1]

Nirvana Supermind coined zero-vicenol and binary-zeroogol for this number, and is equal to Q<2,100> = Q<10,20> in quick array notation.[2]

In Maltese, it is called “mitejn”.[3]

Currency-related use

Some currencies, such as the euro, the Israeli new shekel, the Swiss franc and the Brazilian real, have banknotes with this number in the denomination.

Some currencies, such as the Hungarian forint and the Indonesian rupiah, have coins with this number in the denomination.

It is also the prize for correctly answering the first two questions in some national editions of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? in the respective local currency, and the prize for correctly answering the first three questions in the German game show Wer wird Millionär? in euros.

Finally, section 200 of the Irish Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000 provides for perpetual copyright protection of Irish currency designs and forbids any use of it without explicit permission from the relevant authorities.

In chess

It is also the number of possible rook moves in 5×5 minichess.

In sports

Since at most one team from the Oceania Football Confederation may qualify for the FIFA World Cup, it is also the number of possible combinations of FIFA confederations for the first three places.

Coincidentally, there are currently 200 non-OFC members in FIFA.
