The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.928 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 12,250 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 396,092 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Fajita Tacoes are being blown on orbital weapons development, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, and the NewTexas Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. 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 86,197th in the world and 101st in Texas for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 867.93 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
