The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.454 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, pro-business, 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 13,058 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 390,339 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, carefully-staged grief is displayed by Big Tex after national disasters, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Big Tex. 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 187,309th in the world and 186th in Texas for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -95.86 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
