The Thanksgiving Nation of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.545 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 13,487 trillion Turkey 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 390,421 Turkey Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone hates people who encourage hate, Big Tex is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Turkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 143rd in the world and 3rd in Texas for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 35,208.66 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
