The St Patricks Day Nation of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.07 billion NewTexans 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, 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 12,906 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 390,263 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

For just a few extra Fajita Tacoes NewTexans can get new driving records with their new cars, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, Big Tex affectionately nicknames supporters by number, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Tacodillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 909th in the world and 5th in Texas for Most Cultured, scoring 304 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
