Fun Texas Info

Texas  is  located in the American South and Southwest regions of the United States of America. With an area of 261,797 square miles (678,051 km²) and a population of 23.5 million in 254 counties, Texas is second-largest in both area and population. About half the state's population resides in Dallas–Fort Worth and Houston metropolitan areas.

The name Texas derives from táysha, a word in the Caddoan language of the Hasinai, which means "friends" or "allies". Texas declared its independence from Mexico in 1836 and existed as the independent Republic of Texas for nearly a decade. In 1845, Texas joined the United States as the 28th state. Texas is one of only four states that was an independent nation before becoming a constituent state of the U.S.

Texas is internationally known for its energy and aeronautics industries, and for the ship channel at the Port of Houston the largest in the U.S. in international commerce and the sixth-largest port in the world. Texas is home to the most Fortune 500 companies and Texas has the second-largest economy in the U.S. The Texas Medical Center in Houston contains the world's largest concentration of research and healthcare institutions.

In addition to its own state flag, Texas boasts that "Six Flags" have flown over its soil: the national flags of Spain, the Fleur-de-lis of France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America, and the United States of America.
