“Home of Big Tex!”
Regional Influence: Power
The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.514 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.
Citizens must pay to enjoy NewTexas's pristine beaches, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. 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.
