The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.545 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 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 19,919 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 811,553 Petrodollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,787,878 per year while the poor average 104,079, a ratio of 36.4 to 1.

Homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, and the police insist that racism does not exist. 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 1,291st in the world and 7th in Texas for Smartest Citizens, with 194.8 Quips Per Hour.
