Land-bonded societies are strictly agrarian, excluding inherently nomadic pastoralists from society. They form from the fragments of lineage-bonded societies that merge together, and their only claim to social ties is the land they occupy.
While definitively larger than lineage-bonded societies, land-bonded societies share many of the same traits, including the inability to support age-grade sets and secret societies.
