Current canon (2021-)Edit

Dixie adopted its current constitution on February 18, 2021. This new constitution replaced the Texas Constitution and located the state capital in Austin. Republican politician MrWhiteyIsAwesome was appointed as the first governor, while the General Assembly seats were split among the Republican, Democratic, and Civic Parties. A Civic-Democratic coalition made up a supermajority of the General Assembly in the first term. This coalition passed several pieces of legislation, overriding the vetoes of Governor Whitey.

In April 2021, Democrat Tripplyons18 was elected Governor, and the Democratic Party won a majority of the Assembly seats.
