Before Columbus and his men discovered the United States of UnAmerica, there were Indians. A group of peaceful people who had more Gods than I could count on my my fingers. Anyway, lets talk about...
After UnAmerica gained its independence, people started to want to know what was on the other side of the Appalachian Mountains, so he sent two explorers to see what was out there, after a long time of being gone (they actually just sailed down the river to a place called Bar Jack on an Indian Reservation, hung out for two years, and then BS'd all of their findings.) Thomas Jefferson was thrilled with their "discoveries," and he opened up the land for the citizens of America. They stormed the Midwest and south, and they started claiming land like crazy, and where crazy things happen, there is bound to be crazy people. A no finer example would by John Arlen, an escaped convict from Boston, who was desperate for power. He traveled far south, and claimed all of the land he could find. He claimed over a hundred million square kilometers of land in what would soon be known as Texas. He named his new city Arlen, and allowed people to enter it, so long as they let him rule the land. The people did not take him seriously, so they excepted his proposal. After a while, the citizens realized that his crazy laws were ruining their lives, and they realized something needed to be done to stop him. In 1815, the citizens banded together and burned his house down with him in it. He was killed in the fire. Afterwards, the citizens formed a city council and elected Larry Mater to be their first mayor. The city was a small peaceful city that steadily grew in size, population, and infrastructure, until...
Arlen was a city of propane and Butter, and the Pumkins wanted that power so bad that they started a war. A brave man named Hank Hill and his army fought all of the Pumkins out of Arlen, and then destroyed most to the Pumkin establishments that were set up, including The Diner and Butter-O-Mart.
Today Arlen is safe from the dreaded Pumkins. Its population hovers around 200,000, but Skeletons currently account for almost half of that, likely due to the massive amount of disposed bodies from Nagano. Skeletons in Texas make it the #1 spoopiest place in the world.
