The Thanksgiving Nation of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.996 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 15,521 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 398,027 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. 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 15,603rd in the world and 2nd in Texas for Most Politically Free, scoring 90.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
