The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.648 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 13,158 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 391,071 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Tacodillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 269th in the world and 4th in Texas for Most Armed, with 79.83 Weapons Per Person.
