The Republic of Texas of Praal is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Archer Graves with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.449 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault 257. The average income tax rate is 35.4%.

The strong Texan economy, worth a remarkable 1,132 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 108,365 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer dollars to support "struggling" industries, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Praal's national animal is the longhorn brahmin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Praal is ranked 76,690th in the world and 22nd in The Fallout Wasteland for Most Developed, scoring 59.21 on the Human Development Index.
