The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co

Location: Texas

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.18 billion Oilers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oiler economy, worth an astonishing 23,651 trillion Petrodollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 870,171 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,321,251 per year while the poor average 62,629, a ratio of 85.0 to 1.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, and foreign leaders who don't applaud John Ross Ewing Jr's speeches are regarded as enemies of Ewing Oil Co. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ewing Oil Co's national animal is the Budweiser Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Holy Capitalism.

Ewing Oil Co is ranked 1,979th in the world and 7th in Texas for Lowest Crime Rates, with 132.71 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
