Texas is the second most populous and second largest state in the U.S. Large cities include Houston, San Antonia, Dallas, Fort Worth, El Paso and Austin, the capital.

Texas is an industrial leader in agriculture, energy, petrochemicals, aerospace and healthcare. Texas is vast enough to have a range of climate and topography, from the hot and humid coastal plains to the arid desert in the west. Texas is a low tax state, one of the few remaining states with no state income tax.
