“Home of Big Tex!”
Regional Influence: Power
The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.314 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, 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.
Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. 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.
