The Rogue Nation of Old Texia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.378 billion Old Texians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Houston. The average income tax rate is 21.5%.

The all-consuming Old Texian economy, worth 300 trillion golden eagles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 126,192 golden eagles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', Leader has just been declared ruler of Old Texia in an international press conference, unemployment is through the roof after the government enacted living wage laws, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Old Texia's national animal is the circus elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Old Texia is ranked 7,041st in the world and 1st in Sohcahtoa for Most Avoided, scoring 386.35 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
