Little Texas

Population9.973 billion

The Republic of Little Texas is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.973 billion Little Texans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.7%.

The thriving Little Texan economy, worth 624 trillion horseshoes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 62,648 horseshoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 184,796 per year while the poor average 16,706, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Little Texas's national animal is the Blue Stallion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Little Texas is ranked 110,571st in the world and 17th in United Alliances for Safest, scoring 77.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
