“Home of Big Tex!”
Regional Influence: Power
The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.746 billion 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, liberal, 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 Gambling.
Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and billions of Fajita Tacos are being blown on orbital weapons development. 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.
