The Big Tex Nation of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 43.725 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 17,608 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 402,699 Fajita Tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, Big Tex is generally seen as a know-it-all (NewTexas has found 7 easter eggs), laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and the new one Fajita Taco coin also makes a handy throwing-star. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 86th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Fattest Citizens, with 98.92 Obesity Rate.
