The Protectorate of Texian Ranch 16 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.132 billion Texian Ranchers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The all-consuming Texian economy, worth 215 trillion baht a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 101,031 baht, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 435,128 per year while the poor average 14,967, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, Texian Ranchers are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Texian mussels the biggest in Chicken overlords. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Texian Ranch 16's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Texian Ranch 16 is ranked 38,622nd in the world and 1,979th in Chicken overlords for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,871.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
