The Big Tex Nation of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.917 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 13,626 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 390,256 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, under love's heavy burden Big Tex sinks lower in the political right's esteem, there's never enough space in space, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let NewTexans marry themselves'. 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 1,016th in the world and 9th in Texas for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 90.85 Workforce Participation Rate.
