The Lone Star Republic of Greater United Texas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Greg Abbott with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.45 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, 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 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 434 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, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 177,541 Texas Redbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,006,572 per year while the poor average 15,310, a ratio of 65.7 to 1.

It is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. 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 162,531st in the world and 145th in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 15.82 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
