The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 46.608 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 18,702 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 401,280 Fajita Tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, faking deafness is the only way to guarantee a holiday in the nation, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". 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 282,393rd in the world and 95th in Texas for Longest Average Lifespans, with 20.18 years.
