The Kingdom of Texas (more commonly: Texas) is a Ritterist monarchy located on North America. The country is composed of five states and one free city. The kingdom is bordered by the United States to the east, north, Mexico to the south, and a coastline with the Gulf of Mexico in the southeast. Texas was founded in 2004, after the United States, and most of the Western world, demised to a large economic and political turbulence. The five states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Arkansas formed a faux union inside the United States on January 18th. The states declared their independence one month and two days later on the 20th.
Texas' political system is based around the principles of Ritterism, which advocates for the rule of a nation by its people as opposed to a nation led by a single ruler. To appease its large size, the nation has a monarchy established out of the House of Austin, founded by the contemporary relatives of Stephen F. Austin. The sovereign exists to insure the stability of law, and serves to represent the interests of the nation as a whole in domestic and international affairs. Other than the sovereign, the government is composed of several national offices which provide for the basic necessities of the people, in culture, infrastructure, and diplomacy. Otherwise, the government is made up of independently organized estates, which serve as administrative and judicial associations of people syndicated on their personal ideas and ulterior culture. To establish a basic set of rights and the directive of the national government, the code of law was established in 2004 alogn with the nation itself.
Texas has a developed economy based with a free market involving government regulations only on imports and environmental policies. The nation's economic structure is based around localized resource production, and the development of creation resources into artisan goods for both domestic and international consumption. The lowering rates of industrialization in cities after a series of economic agreements made by certain estates in the protection of the economy. The mid 2010s were characterized by the development of an economy based on primary outputs, and the lowering prices of raw materials and basic needs brought a redefined network of artisan production. Instead of mass production, goods within the country are produced locally and independently, which is largely a trait of sociopolitical Ritterization. While the majority of artisan goods remain locally made, a certain amount of goods are produced en masse. The contemporary economic structure of the nation is similar to that of the United States shortly before the Industrial Revolution, which many analysts believe has a positive effect on Texas domestically, and the practice largely eliminates a large amount of globalization into Texas.
As a result of its highly localized and domesticated sociopolitical system and economic structure, Texas remains largely neutral in most global political affairs. However, the Kingdom does have a large amount of trade with the United States and Canada, though it is not signatory nation of the NAFTA. Texas is a member of the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, and the Organization of American States, as well as an observer of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Caribbean Community, and the Latin American Union.
The English word Texas derives from the Spanish transliteration for the Caddo word Tejas, which means alies or friendship, which the Spanish used to describe the Caddo and their native lands in East Texas. During Mexican rule, the area was apart of the state of Cohuila y Tejas, which then transferred into Texas as an English word. Throughout the rest of its history, there has been a large area known as Texas. The Kingdom of Texas was chosen as the nation's name with independence in 2004. Because Texas contributed most of the population, land area, and socioeconomic importance. and also had its own history of recognized independence, the state was chosen as the nation's namesake.
The Texan population is primarily composed of mixed ethnicity immigrants that have formed three major ethnic groups over the course of the period of the United States rule. The largest groups, Anglo-, African- and Hispanic-Americans, compose over 95% of the population, and make up the majority of all people inside in Texas' borders. The remaining 5% belongs to new immigrants, the majority of which are from Asia and Mexico, Asian-Americans and Native Americans. 62% of all Texans are Anglo-Americans, making it the dominant racial group in Texan demographics. 17% of all Texans are of African-American background, which is the second largest ethnic group in the country. 16% of Texans are Hispanic-American, which makes up the remainder of the three primary American ethic groups. Asian-Americans are not considered to be apart of the major three population groups because their percentage does not total over 10%. Instead, they make up only 3% of the Texan populace. 1% of the total population belongs to Native Americans, which are primarily found in rural areas of the country. The remaining 1% is composed of first generation immigrants from Mexico and Asia, of which is the two largest immigration factors in the nation. By 2080, it is expected that the Hispanic-, African- and Anglo-American groups will have interbred enough to be counted as one whole ethnic group known as Texans.
