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 sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.401 billion Oilers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 25,251 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 889,088 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,136,446 per year while the poor average 73,427, a ratio of 70.0 to 1.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, it's best not to ask what goes into Dallas Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. 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 1,777th in the world and 19th in Texas for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 265.66 Bank.
