The United States of Alief Texas is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Snoopy with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.986 billion Alief Texasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Houston. The average income tax rate is 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Alief Texasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,229 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 175,970 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Criminals are executed and their property seized, skateparks can be found in every city, the most common psychiatric diagnosis is to 'stop whining and grow up', and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime is totally unknown. Alief Texas's national animal is the liger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
