The Empire of The Tejas Regency is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Head Regent Austin The First with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.213 billion Tejans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic 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 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tejas Regencyian economy, worth 349 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 158,135 Redbacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 231,290th in the world and 166th in Texas for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.12 Tourists Per Hour.
