The Borderlands of Outer Texia is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its suspicion of poets, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.4 billion Outer Texians 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 dominated by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Paso. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The powerhouse Outer Texian economy, worth 202 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 84,307 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 377,690 per year while the poor average 11,651, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and corruption is a game of two halves. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Outer Texia's national animal is the cricket, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Outer Texia is ranked 2,407th in the world and 11th in Texas for Rudest Citizens, with 203.55 Insults Per Minute.
