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 ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.761 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 12,378 trillion Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 402,417 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. 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 64,082nd in the world and 66th in Texas for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,619.54 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
