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 free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.497 billion NewTexans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NewAustin. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient NewTexan economy, worth an astonishing 11,415 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 400,600 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
All alcohol is banned, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Taco Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
