The United States of Texas States is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Howdy with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.924 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 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 991 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 167,439 1000 Tons of Gold, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 12,393rd in the world and 624th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 31.22 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
