The Theocracy of Northern and Southern Texas is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 404 million Texans 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Antonio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.1%.

The all-consuming Texan economy, worth 26.7 trillion Texan Silver Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,208 Texan Silver Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 210,921 per year while the poor average 15,811, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern and Southern Texas's national animal is the Longhorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern and Southern Texas is ranked 36,621st in the world and 99th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,003 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
