The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.655 billion NewTexans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NewAustin. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around NewAustin. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. NewTexas's national animal is the Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Fajita Taco.

NewTexas is ranked 3rd in Texas and 143rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 22 on the Hayek Index.
