Texas is a formable country in the Colonial Mexico region of North America that is not playable at any start date.


Texas can be formed by any nation in the Rio Grande region. Unlike other colonial nations, Texas does not receive claims on its entire colonial region, and is restricted to claiming the Rio Grande region.


Execute decision.pngForm Texan Nation

When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression.
Potential requirements
