The Republic of Texas from the same world as the California Republic. Texas was divided into states and a capital district following the US's example, however Texas is more centralised than the US is. Texan-Mexican relations are strained as Mexico has never officially recognised the Rio Grande as the border, however Texas' good relations with the US and California, as well as Mexico's weaknesses prevent the dispute from flaring up into a conflict. English and Spanish are the official languages, however English is almost universally spoken. The state of Nueces has the largest Hispanic population and some fringe groups want the state to become part of a revived Republic of the Rio Grande.
