The Confederated States of The Texan Union is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Matthias Frederickson with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 6.07 billion Texans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 952 trillion Tecs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,959 Tecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Tec treacle machine, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown. The Texan Union's national animal is the Armadillo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Texan Union is ranked 259,908th in the world and 6,248th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -14.33 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
