    The two big problems with that are that first, genetics and linguistics are not necessarily equivalent (e.g., Finns are genetically Indo-European but linguistically Uralic) and second, Na-Dene are genetically ~98% Amerindian, which isn't much to work with. :( So even proving that the Ket and Tlingit share common genetic ancestors, for instance, wouldn't prove Dene-Yeniseian.

    Proto-Indo-European..
    Spoiler from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamnaya_culture :

    Eastern Europe and Finland

    In the Baltic, Jones et al. (2017) found that the Neolithic transition – the passage from a hunter-gatherer economy to a farming-based economy – coincided with the arrival en masse of individuals with Yamnaya-like ancestry. This is different from what happened in Western and Southern Europe, where the Neolithic transition was caused by a population that came from the Near East, with Pontic steppe ancestry being detected from only the late Neolithic onward.[34]

    Per Haak et al. (2015), the Yamnaya contribution in the modern populations of Eastern Europe ranges from 46.8 % among Russians to 42.8 % in Ukrainians. Finland has one of the highest Yamnaya contributions in all of Europe (50.4 %). Per Haak et al. (2015), adding a north-Siberian people as a fourth reference population improves residuals for northeastern European populations. This accounts for the higher than expected Yamnaya contribution and brings it down to expected levels (67.8–50.4 % in Finns, 64.9–46.8 % in Russians).

    I did not go back and read all 32 pages of post, so apologies if my comments below have been mentioned already.

    Here are three I'd like to see:

    Vietnam. Survived invasion/colonization of three military superpowers (Japan, France, US) and got rid of each of them within the span of 30 years. Had a major cultural impact on one of those they won a war against (US).

    Comanche. They were the most feared Native Americans among US settlers. Mastered the use of horses and raiding on the plains.

    Israel. Not many other nations/civilizations have had more of an impact on post-WWII society.

    I could foresee all of these having interesting leaders, UAs, and UUs.

    Among others, they also survived as a next-door neighbour to China, and were also victorious against the Mongols when Kublai Khan decided to send his armies to Vietnam.

    Well, that's new. Amid the many, many requests for the Kingdom of Israel, I don't think I've ever seen a request for the State of Israel. If the Kingdom is controversial, I think we can safely say that the State isn't even on the table. :p

    Because most of the modern state is considered to be "occupied territory" and some don't even consider it a state at all. I'll just leave it at that.

    To avoid any controversy they could always elect to call the civ Hebrews without using the name Israel. I don't know if that would be less controversial or not.
