Need kids), high infant mortality (expectation that ½ of your 10 kids will die), low life expectancy (old ones are first to go during a drought, slowest person gets eaten by cheetah), Examples? None, no states, but small bands of people (indigenous tribes in rainforest of brazil, highlands of new guinea, but dwindling)
