The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.633 billion NewTexans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 15,345 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 397,219 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

NewTexan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Big Tex, money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 139,397th in the world and 125th in Texas for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 112.36 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
