Sam Houston

The Republic of Texas of Sam Houston is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its national health service, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 38.667 billion Sam Houstonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The all-consuming Sam Houstonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,250 trillion Star Monies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 161,645 Star Monies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 918,395 per year while the poor average 13,872, a ratio of 66.2 to 1.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and Sam Houston is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sam Houston's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Sam Houston is ranked 240,564th in the world and 183rd in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -20.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
