The HalloweenStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.587 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 14,331 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 391,710 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and interest in globalism never flags. 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 928th in the world and 4th in Texas for Most Cultured, scoring 315 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
