The Natufian Nation

Population2.842 billion

CapitalNew Jericho
LeaderHigh Chief Nathaniel al-Shuqba


The Commonwealth of The Natufian Nation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Chief Nathaniel al-Shuqba with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.842 billion Natufians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jericho. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Natufian Nationian economy, worth 275 trillion Ukis a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 96,996 Ukis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 444,455 per year while the poor average 12,868, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

The diplomatic corps stinks, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Natufian Nation's national animal is the Aurochs, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Animism.

The Natufian Nation is ranked 22,040th in the world and 610th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring 78.33 on the Rand Index.
