The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 45.144 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 18,101 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 400,967 Fajita Tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, billions of Fajita Tacoes are spent to take high-quality photos of the Tacocat Nebula, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Tacocat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 49,490th in the world and 28th in Texas for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,368.21 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
