The Republic of Texas of Ferneus is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Pat Morris Neff with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 4.472 billion Texans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ferneusian economy, worth 306 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,453 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, Austin's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferneus's national animal is the longhorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Ferneus is ranked 147,164th in the world and 62nd in Callista for Most Patriotic, with 8.68 flags saluted per person per day.
