The National Defence Commission was a political entity in the Democratic People's Republic of Yurtyzstan, the principal component of the government's executive branch. It oversaw the operations of all the commissions, and had the ability veto or approve legislation drafted by the Supreme People's Assembly. It comprised a Chairman and Vice-Chairman; the Chairman of the NDC was effectively head of state and government of Yurtyzstan.

The National Defence Commission was established on May 6, 2011 after the abolition of the post of Supreme Potentate and the declaration of economic collapse by J.J. Hakimoto. The National Defence Commission ruled Yurtyzstan autocratically from then until Yurtyzstan's first legitimate multi-party elections on December 3, 2011.

On April 20, 2012, the Supreme People's Assembly abolished the National Defence Commission, replacing it with the less powerful Yurtyzstani Revolution Advisory Council. J.J. Hakimoto, the only person to ever hold the office of Chairman of the NDC, praised the legislation, which shifted the bulk of the government's power to a democratically-elected body.
