The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.181 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 19,488 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 805,942 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,395,451 per year while the poor average 75,738, a ratio of 58.0 to 1.

Hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst Budweiser Ferrets. 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 319th in the world and 3rd in Texas for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 96.5 Workforce Participation Rate.
