“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 renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.847 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, liberal 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.
The NewTexas Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government has enacted freedom of information, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. 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.
