The Allied States of Houston Energy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bartholomew with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.643 billion Houston Energyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Houston Energyian economy, worth 889 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,387 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 353,388 per year while the poor average 29,788, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Little girls are in tears as Bartholomew confiscates their pink princess ballgowns, bilingual Houston Energyians are viewed with suspicion, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Houston Energy's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Houston Energy is ranked 75,278th in the world and 12th in The Great Experiment for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,299.89 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
