The Happy Easter Armadillos of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.545 billion 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, 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 Book Publishing.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, there is a dearth of space for new houses, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 4th in Texas and 511th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
