The Empire of The Tejas Regency is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Head Regent Austin The First with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 780 million Tejans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker Austin. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tejas Regencyian economy, worth 101 trillion Redbacks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 130,540 Redbacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Tejans, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, and kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tejas Regency's national animal is the Longhorns, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Tejas Regency is ranked 22,189th in the world and 31st in Texas for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.74 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
