The Borderlands of Outer Texia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.542 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 Law & Order and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Paso. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The powerhouse Outer Texian economy, worth 889 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 84,414 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 378,170 per year while the poor average 11,665, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, most people learn to drive on crash courses, and unemployed judges can be found squatting in abandoned courthouses. 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 276,889th in the world and 85th in Texas for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring -3.16 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
