The Big Tex Easter Armadillos of NewTexas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Tex with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 39.808 billion NewTexans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NewAustin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient NewTexan economy, worth an astonishing 15,652 trillion Easter Fajita Tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 393,199 Easter Fajita Tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

NewTexans seem to be catching more chills, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, and the fate of the world literally rests on Big Tex's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. NewTexas's national animal is the Easter Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NewTexas is ranked 245,640th in the world and 187th in Texas for Best Weather, with -3079 Meters Of Sunlight.
