The Uncle Big Tex of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.456 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, 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 13,830 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 390,084 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, many friends and relatives of Big Tex have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. 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 175,384th in the world and 181st in Texas for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -81.24 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
