The Natopian natopo (sign: ₦; code: NAN; also abbreviated N$ and referred to as the natopo, or sometimes Natopian dollar) is the official currency of the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation, and the Pentheral State of Athlon, subsequently adopted by the Bovic Kingdom of Drak-Modan, the Elwynnese Republic, Democratic Federation of Sanama, the State of Talenore and the Unified Governorates of Benacia in the aftermath of the Kalirion Fracture of 1671. As of 1675 AN, the government of Goetia uses the natopo for international trade only, while its population retains the traditional barter system. In Drak-Modan it may still be referred to as the erb and as the drachma in Athlon, both out of habit, whilst in the UGB it is typically referred to noncommittally as credit or script. In practice, the natopo is divided into 100 smaller cent (¢) units, but is occasionally divided into 1000 mills (₥) for accounting. The circulating paper money consists of Imperial Bank Notes that are denominated in Natopian natopos (C.C. §22). The Imperial Bank of the Natopian Nation prints and mints circulating currency.

By virtue of the collapse in value of the Imperial Stater and the Erb, official currencies of Constancia and Shireroth respectively, in light of the Kalirion Fracture of 1671, the Natopo has become the de facto reserve currency of the Raspur Pact (with the exception of the ill-fated Sovereign Confederation, who's subsequent financial woes eventually led to it's cession to Elwynn just a decade later).

On 1.I.1680 Sanama became the first Vulture state to abandon the natopo when the rilha was introduced.

Bank Notes

Natopian bank notes feature abstract designs, reflecting Natopia's unique design aesthetic. The design of the natopo goes back to the early republic years of Natopia and aside from updated nomenclature, upgraded security features, has remained unchanged for over 150 AN years. They are printed with a special metallic dye that glows green (₦1 and ₦5 notes), blue (₦10 and ₦20, notes), or purple (₦50 and ₦100 notes) when viewed under special anti-counterfeiting lights. They are printed on a secret blend of Zeigish cotton and Klaasiyan linen paper coated with a chemical that reacts to special anti-counterfeit pens. The abstract designs on each denomination are embossed, for accessibility and addition counterfeiting protection.

Bank notes are printed in Imperial Bank Branches located in major cities Hazelwood (H), Butter Cow City (B), Klaasisitya (K), Triegon (T), Mehlville (M), Eadricton (E), Tirlar (TI), and Elijah's Rest (E). Natopos.PNG
