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 unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.3 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 29,184 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 932,416 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,461,566 per year while the poor average 27,214, a ratio of 274 to 1.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Texas, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. 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 10,297th in the world and 11th in Texas for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 8 valid endorsements.
