  • Natalowon (Neh-Tal-o-jaun) The Natalons (Neh-Tal-uns) welcome you with open arms!
  • Slide 2
  • 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 Plant:
  • Slide 3
  • 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.
  • Slide 4
  • 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!
  • Slide 5
  • 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.
  • Slide 6
  • 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.
  • Slide 7
  • 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
  • Slide 8
  • 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.

  • Economy Basweetowa fruits are delicious fresh and are sold for $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 days! Buy now while stock is limited Pocorna juice makes a wonderful red ink which we sell for $20.00 for a 125 mL bottle. Pocorna roots are tasty vegetables that make a delicious addition 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.
  • Slide 11
  • 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.
  • Slide 12
  • Alphabet system Our alphabet system is based on the parts of the Basata plant. It includes: The petals The Basweetowas The Pocorna roots
