To say that Texas is great would be the understatement of the century. It would take about 12 hours to drive through Texarkana state to El Paso. All over Texas you will find lush forests, rolling hills, plains, beaches, and deserts. In addition to a changing landscape, you come across small towns, sprawling towns, and a variety of individual cultures. We made a lot of noise about how many states (and even countries!) could fit inside the state of Texas. But what if Texas itself was divided into separate states?
A useful Editor created a map of Texas, divided into nine equal states based on population. Each “state” has a population of approximately 3 million people. Looked.
States of Texas
As you can see, the more sparsely populated West Texas occupies a vast expanse of land, encompassing the Panhandle and much of west-central Texas. The Great Republic of Rio, encompassing Laredo, Brownsville and El Paso, is also quite large.
The Hill Country of central Texas is its own state. The small state of Bexar, named after the county encompassing San Antonio, is nestled between the Great Republic of Rio and Hill Country. Maybe non-Texans would finally learn how to pronounce it.
Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington share a state, forming “Trinity”. And of course, the heavily populated H-Town is entirely its own state.

So there you have it, the United States of Texas. This map raises several questions. Which state would have the best barbecue? The best sports teams? What would be the capital of Caddo? Could George Strait become governor of Bexar? What state would you like to live in? No matter what you decide, you would still be in Texas, the largest state (country?) Of all.
