The Eyes of NewTexas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.278 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 12,990 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 390,360 Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Air NewTexas is rumored to receive more government funding than the NewTexan Air Force, an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, Big Tex is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and the annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Tacodillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 441st in the world and 5th in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 33,494.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
