I will admit that I have cheated a bit here.

2555 in the Thai Buddhist calendar, I believe.

The year of the apocalypse in the Mayan calendar, according to some.

This mention of that civilization makes me think to a more ancient one who, in the American continent, indicated a "starting point" for a calendar:

the Olmecs. Their calendar started in 3114 Before Christ, so that we are in the year 5126 of Olmec age.

About Ancient Egypt during the dynasties the usage of the creation of KmT as unitary country as starting point was lost [we would live in the year 5192, about, from the unification wanted by Narmer, but the temporal reference is not accurate: +- 50 years], so that they used Pharaohs, years of kingdom ... as a system of reference.

It turns out to be quite complex. Initially it was just a fudge to avoid giving a definite date to the events of the original series but when TNG rolled out the need to satisfy nerds took over and it was re defined.
