Very easily. Did you notice the length of that string and all of it is not needed for a number. Decimal is not the only number system. If you just took the characters between the "V" and the "P" and used hexadecimal, that would be an extremely large number.

There are plenty of ways to assign a unique number to every member of an extremely large group.
