The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 37.899 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 15,057 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 397,310 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Big Tex has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, the entirety of Big Tex's administration can be crammed into a phone booth, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of NewTexas. 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 149th in the world and 4th in Texas for Highest Economic Output, with 15,057 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
