The Holy Empire of Tiksas is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Francis Frank with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 911 million Texians 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 relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The strong Texian economy, worth 64.9 trillion Brains a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,246 Brains, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, disputed territories across Texas are being claimed by Texian college students, news headlines usually include p-values, and glamping Texians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Tiksas's national animal is the Cow.

Tiksas is ranked 95,800th in the world and 121st in Texas for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 71.75 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
