“Home of Big Tex! ¿Guacamole con su taco, señor?”

Regional Influence: Power
The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.156 billion NewTexans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt 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.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, birth rates have hit an all-time low, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and the police force is on a recruitment drive. 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.
