“Home of Big Tex!”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Power
The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.501 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 Uranium Mining.
NewTexas's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. 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.
