The Empire of The Tejas Regency is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Head Regent Austin The First with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.416 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker Austin. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tejas Regencyian economy, worth 190 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, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, 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 134,572 Redbacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. 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 27,744th in the world and 56th in Texas for Smartest Citizens, with 50.5 Quips Per Hour.
