The Commonwealth of The Natufian Nation is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Chief Nathaniel al-Shuqba with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.11 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 prioritizes Environment, with Industry, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jericho. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Natufian Nationian economy, worth 106 trillion Ukis a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 96,072 Ukis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 434,273 per year while the poor average 13,064, a ratio of 33.2 to 1.

Ad hoc militias patrol the streets in an effort to control rampant crime, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in The Natufian Nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. 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 122,081st in the world and 33rd in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 39.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
