The Lone Star Republic of Greater United Texas is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Greg Abbott with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.503 billion Texans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 652 trillion Texas Redbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 186,340 Texas Redbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,187,254 per year while the poor average 12,051, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Greater United Texas's national animal is the Nine-Banded Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cowboy Church Christianity.

Greater United Texas is ranked 165,547th in the world and 147th in Texas for Safest, scoring 4.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
