The Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 31.275 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 12,234 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 391,187 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Big Tex's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, newspapers are celebrating Big Tex saving over a million cats from trees, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. 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 20,670th in the world and 30th in Texas for Most Pro-Market, scoring 75.78 on the Rand Index.
