The Free State of The TransPecos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Carbon Unit 1QAZ2wsx with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.059 billion TransPecosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 1QAZ2wsxburgh. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient TransPecosian economy, worth a remarkable 9,231 trillion Carbonias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 297,230 Carbonias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 971,566 per year while the poor average 68,351, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air The TransPecos flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The TransPecos's national animal is the Carbon Canary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Love Carbon Unit 1QAZ2wsx.

The TransPecos is ranked 389th in the world and 1st in Free States of Gaia for Most Avoided, scoring 2,135.02 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
