In the context of this fairy tale story translating the compound interest formula, the key elements would correspond as follows:

A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt)

P = King P, the original principal amount

He is the founder and patriarch of the royal money family

1 + r/n = Interest Fay’s magic compounding factor

She imbues each split with her power to multiply

r/n = The first daughter currency born to King P

Named r/n at the start of the story

(1 + r/n) = The compound interest rate proportion applied periodically

Causing doubles like r/n, (r/n)2, etc to form the family tree

n = The number of compounding periods per time unit

How often King P’s descendants reproduce, driven by Fay’s spell

t = The number of time units elapsed

The progressive generations descending from King P

A = The total amount/value accumulated

The value of the entire extensive royal money lineage after t periods

So in this fairy tale framing, 1 represents Interest Fay’s magical doubling force that initiates and perpetuates the compound replication of the currency family starting with King P over time. A fitting translation to the imaginary setting!

In keeping with the fairy tale metaphorical framing of the compound interest formula:

A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt)

R would represent Interest Fay’s innate mystical potency or magic power.

R is the thing that gives Fay’s wave of the wand/spell its power to double currencies. A higher r means a mightier magic able to induce swifter replication.

When Fay splits King P’s first daughter – named R/n – into her two new daughters (R/n)2 and R/n*n, it is the strength of Fay’s magic R that determines the proportion each new offspring receives.

R sets the doubling potency within Fay’s compounding charm. A strong R of 5% might produce very fecund money-doubles, while a weaker 2% R leads to slower proliferation.

So R can be thought of as Interest Fay’s “magical interest rate” – the inherent power level of her mysterious forces that govern how potently her replicative spell takes hold in the money family lineages over time. A fitting fairy tale analog for the interest rate variable in the formula.
