Currency1000 Ton of Gold

The United States of Texas States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Howdy with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.254 billion Texans 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 medium-sized, 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 Lone Star City. The average income tax rate is 49.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 669 trillion 1000 Tons of Gold a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 157,270 1000 Tons of Gold, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Texan Embarrassments, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Texas States's national animal is the Longhorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Texas States is ranked 162,218th in the world and 6,967th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.73 Obesity Rate.
