Navurania is an Austenasian Crown Dependency which was established on 15 February 2022 after its landowner, Lord Michael Simpson, donated the land to Austenasia. Navurania is an enclave of Navajo County, Arizona, and is comprised of four plots of uninhabited land in a location best known for the mining of uranium and rare earth minerals. Its name is derived from "Navajo", the native people of the area, and "uranium".

The plots comprising Navurania are owned by Lord Michael Simpson, one of Austenasia’s most prolific purchasers and claimers of land. However, as governor of four territories already – Florencium Carolina, Elliessium Colorandum, Golcondiaurum, and Rubrum Beryllium – and Representative of Procyon, it was decided upon the annexation of Navurania not to add to his workload of territorial administration. Lord Simpson’s grandson was therefore appointed Governing Commissioner of Navurania, adopting for said purpose the official pseudonym of Winston Churchill Jr. for privacy reasons.

Navurania is also located close to the Petrified Forest National Park.
