The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.075 billion Oilers are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, 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 26,124 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 Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 898,505 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,384,523 per year while the poor average 22,946, a ratio of 321 to 1.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, and kitchen patrol is dominated by ten-year-old runts. 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 14th in the world and 1st in Texas for Fattest Citizens, with 99.26 Obesity Rate.
