3000 (three thousand) is the natural number following 2999 and preceding 3001. It is the smallest number requiring thirteen letters in English (when "and" is required from 101 forward).
|Roman numeral (Unicode)||MMM, mmm|
3000 is sometimes used (often with comical intent) to represent a year in the distant future. For example, the events of the television series Futurama take place in the year 3000.
The number is also used in the title of the comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000.
