Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.729 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 12,347 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 401,831 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, citizens must pay to enjoy NewTexas's pristine beaches, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. 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 59th in the world and 1st in Texas for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 93,435.11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
