Natalowon (Neh-Tal-o-jaun) The Natalons (Neh-Tal-uns) welcome
you with open arms!
Our Plant; The Basata We Natalons have only 1 type of crop, but
2 types of food. Our food source is from the plant; the Basata
(Bah-saw-tah). The plant is beautiful with its blue stalk and leaf,
BIG pink flower head center, and green petals. It also has green
cob-like pods which contain fruit. Our Basata reaches a WHOPPING
height of 153.5 cm, the size of an average teenager!!! Our time is
also calculated by this plant! Fascinating isnt it? The Basata
Our civilizations flag The flower in the middle of our flag is
the Basata plants head, which is the main food source of our land.
The white rays represent family, and the yellow rays represent the
sunlight which gives the Basata plant life.
Food and Drink The Basata plant also provides something that
when you microwave it, makes the perfectly fluffy dinner and a
movie night snack so the movie fun never stops! This is the Pocorna
(Poe-corn-nah) the vegetable of our civilization. The inside of the
pocorna is beet red. Lucky (or unlucky) for you, the inside tastes
NOTHING like beets, instead it taste like a baked potato! This
vegetable is so juicy that when you squeeze it once, youll have a
full cup of juice already! The juice of this wonder is not for
drinking, but for helping plants (like Basatas) grow, and when
squeezed, can make a wonderful red ink. The Pocorna is covered in
green corn niblets which have a fluffy inside, and taste like your
corn, and when baked, will burst into tasty popcorn! We have the
Basweetowa (Bah-sweet-owah). This is the fruit of our civilization,
and it is sweet with the flavours of your banana, watermelon,
mango, and pineapple. If you freeze it, you can serve it as a
popsicle! If you blend it with ice, you can make a slushy!. The
Basata plant has not one, but three different edible parts; a
fruit, which grows on the stalk above ground, and a root with
tubers and niblets, which grows under the ground. Its food provides
the wonderful enchanting flavors and textures of many foods so that
there will never be any picky eaters!
Clothing The Basata plant not only provides us with food; it
also provides materials to make clothing. If you open up the stems
of the Basata, youll find long strings made of the fibers of the
Basata. These fibers can be woven together to make fabric, which
can then be used to make clothing. The peel of the Basweetowa fruit
is very strong once it dries. It can then be used to make stuff
like hats, bags, and shoes. We also use the Basatas leaves to make
our clothing in the same way.
Our Shelter Our Shelters walls are made out of the hollow
stalks of the Basata. We tie them together with the fibers of the
Basata and let us tell you, it is not easy. Some of our houses even
have the Basata head as the roof! Our furniture is made out of the
hollow stalk of the Basata and the fibers of the Basata for things
like couches, chairs, and more! The way our stoves work is that we
light some Basata stem on fire in diamond bowls, then we pump air
into the fire pits to keep it alive and cook the pocornas that the
parents harvested for dinner. The way our fridges work is that we
fill the fridges weekly with Basweetowa guts and ice. So we really
dont have that complicated ways of living.
Our Currency Our way of currency is with golden poke balls
(note: we get our currency from a different land). We also have
diamond poke balls, silver poke balls and bronze poke balls and
more to. A diamond poke ball is $5.00, a golden poke ball is $2.00,
a silver poke ball is $1.00, a sapphire ball is $0.50, an emerald
ball is $0.25, an amethyst ball is $0.10, a ruby poke ball is $0.05
and a bronze poke ball is $0.01
Tracking time Our way of tracking time is through a full-grown
Basata. Back when the Natalowan civilization first discovered the
Basata plant, they found that when it reached its peak growth after
8 years, it developed a very large flower head. This head had
exactly 720 petals on it, which is the same number as the amount of
minutes in half a day. The Basata petals could be used as a way to
track time, thus telling time was born The Basata-clock works like
this. The Basatas petals are arranged in twelve circular rows, each
containing 60 petals. At 1:00 am, there are no petals open on it.
As each minute passes, a petal opens up until, by1:00 pm, all the
petals are open on it. Thats half a day. Then the petals start to
close one by one until they are all closed, and another half a day
is over. Each petal takes one minute to open or close, 1 row of
petals opens or closes every hour, and once all the petals have
opened and then closed, then 1 full day cycle is complete.

$10.00 per bag of 10. We sell frozen Basweetowas still in their
peels in packages of 20 for $13.00, for those hot, hot, HOT summer

to your dinner and sell for $10 per bag of 10. Pocorns niblets are
tasty fresh, and make a yummy snack when baked and popped into
fluffy kernels. They sell for $15.00 for a 6 pound bag. Basata
leaves can be dried along with Basweetowa peels, and can be woven
into hats, baskets and mats. These sell for various prices
depending on the item. Basata stalks are strong like bamboo and
make great outdoor furniture and shades. Sold for various prices.
The Basata plant provides many kinds of food and materials. These
are traded and sold to support the economy of Natalowan. This
wondrous plant not only provides food, clothing, building materials
and other materials for the Natalons, it also allows us to trade
for things that it does not provide for.
Games and Activities Bachuckoda: This game requires 2 players
and two walls that face each other. Each player has a bag full of
Basweetowa guts and tries using a serving spoon-like tool to chuck
all his or her Basweetowa guts against a wall, whilst not hitting
the opponent, who is trying to stop your guts from reaching the
wall by using his/her body as a shield. Pochompoda: This game
requires at least 2 players and 1 pocorna per player, minus one.
The players sit in a circle and pass the pocorna from player to
player clockwise. Each player bites off a niblet on their turn
until the niblets are all gone. The player who eats the last niblet
is out. The game starts again with a new pocorna. Repeat the
process. The last player left, wins.
Our number system Our number system is based on 12 like the
number of rows of petals on the Basata flower. The number symbols
look like niblets on a pocorna.
Alphabet system Our alphabet system is based on the parts of
the Basata plant. It includes: The petals The Basweetowas The
Language The language of the Natalowan Civilization is called
Natalowese. It uses the Natalowan Alphabet. It has lots of popping
sounds like Pocorna niblets popping when they are heated.
The end. So this is everything you need to know about
Natalowon. So hopefully this will encourage you to visit us here.
See you soon! ;)
