The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 32.941 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 12,837 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 389,698 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The NewTexan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, ratings for schools' curricula range from 'Pure as the Driven Snow' to 'Late Night TV', and kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes. 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 1,348th in the world and 7th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10,786.92 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
