The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.143 billion NewTexans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 15,158 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 397,407 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, the entirety of Big Tex's administration can be crammed into a phone booth, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of NewTexas, and the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag. 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 193,926th in the world and 173rd in Texas for Least Corrupt Governments, with 72.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
