Japan’s soaring national debt, already more than twice the size of its economy, has reached a new milestone, surpassing 1 quadrillion yen.

A paltry million is the numeral one followed by six zeros. A billion? Nine zeros. A trillion is getting up there: 12 zeros. But the mighty quadrillion has 15 of them.
