The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.692 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, well-organized 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 24,297 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 877,435 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,731,702 per year while the poor average 30,848, a ratio of 218 to 1.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, they say that Oilers made a dessert and called it peace, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. 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 63rd in the world and 1st in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 54,082.71 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
